Crossover
Ford Flex
MSRP:
$28,550
Mileage:
17 city/24 highway
Safety:
“Good” in front impacts, “good” in side impacts, “good” in rear impacts from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS.
Why it’s trip-worthy:

Extras such as a built-in cooler and its multipanel sunroof, called the Vista Roof, add to this roomy vehicle, says Brian Moody with Edmunds.com. It also has 20 cubic feet of trunk capacity. Plus, he says, it stays away from the jelly bean shape. “It doesn’t look like a dorky family car; it looks kind of cool. I think that’s worth something,” he says.
