For those of you who want a sports car, comfy seating for long trips, usable interior space for building materials, good visibility, good winter driving, low entry for older parents and towing capability this it the best there is now. I've had the Mercedes equivalent and it was quieter, dealt with high snow better, had better seats, but it had less space inside for hauling stuff, too high for grams, was not sporty,and was a lousy tow car (i tow a 4000 lbs load). On the other hand, the flex was great at towing and if you have ever had a highway load sway experience, the built automatic sway correction is a religious experience. The connections are built in for the aftermarket brake control
Quieter at speed, don't have scoop on bottom be so low. I scooped up Clay on a trip and had to dig it out, some phones are fussy fussy about SYNC -- get one that it likes, make a way to turn on the rear camera when driving forward, even for a second for when the mirror is blocked.
