10 Family Vehicles You Can Still Look Cool In

3.Ford (F - Get Report) Flex

MSRP: $30,900



The giant, boxy Mini Cooper clone continues to get no love from consumers who favor less funky looking utility vehicles. Its sales dropped by nearly a quarter after Ford revamped the Explorer SUV, but the Flex's room for seven, 44 inches of legroom in the second row and a power folding mechanisms for getting into the third row make it easy to transport a large crew or throw some gear in the back and take a long trip. Options such as sliding second-row captain's seats, Microsoft (MSFT) Sync phone, entertainment and navigation systems in its MyFord Touchscreen, DVD entertainment center for the back, a multipanel sunroof and second-row fridge console for road sodas compensate somewhat for its roughly 22 combined miles per gallon. Consumers are passing on the Flex because it looks weird, but that standout frame and spacious 80 cubic feet of cargo room may be the only vehicle more family-friendly than a minivan.
