Why it's a winner: Styling, decent mileage for its size

The boxy Ford Flex is a crossover based on the same platform as the Ford Taurus and the Volvo S80. That gives it a car-like ride and decent gas mileage, plus seating and cargo capacity like a big SUV. The Ford Flex was first introduced midway through 2008. That makes comparisons a little misleading, since it's comparing a full year in 2009 versus a partial year in 2008. Even so, the Flex has legs. Ford Flex sales were up 8.2 percent in October 2009 versus the year-ago month.
