The 2013 Ford Flex has family duty down pat: This three-row SUV has a low step-in height that makes it easy for kids to climb into its spacious interior, and it can haul six or seven passengers. Rear cargo space is about half the size of the average minivan’s cargo area, but it’s better than many three-row crossovers. One downside to the Flex is its boxy exterior doesn’t make for the most agile handling.
