2009 Ford Flex: An Upgrade to First Class

September 24, 2009

Ford Flex First Class Seating

Our Ford Flex has so many different seating possibilities that you can discover new ones even after a year of ownership.

2007 Honda Fit Business Class Seating

While sitting in the Flex's back seat at the track, I found the little release that makes the front passenger seat flip forward. 'Ottoman!' I declared and allowed Magrath to sample my fragrant feet as I reclined my seatback, tapped away on my laptop and enjoyed a venti Earl Grey. If that video screen were connected to satellite TV and I were some sort of roving, mobile businessman, I could've watched Bloomberg or that crazed CNBC dufus. Plus, the center console fridge will keep a chilled bottle of Dom for those all-important roving business meetings and after-work rendezvous with my secretary Candy.

I may have to work on the wardrobe, but take that Romans and your Business Class Fit! I've found First Class.
