 Pros Redesigned front-end offers a retro-futuristic look.

 Pros Although the Titanium trim for 2012 is retired, the options are still available to add on.

 Pros Enormous amount of leg room in all three rows, especially if you opt for captain’s chairs in the second row. This allows a lot of extra space for third row passengers.

 Pros Cutting edge features usually only available on luxury vehicles.

 Pros Unique safety features, like second row inflatable seatbelts.

 Pros Decent towing capacity.

 Pros Extremely smooth ride.

 Pros Electric-assist power steering system is surprisingly responsive.

 Cons Handling is not very inspiring.

 Cons Many drivers would prefer to have a V8 engine for increased acceleration and towing capacity.

 Cons Doesn’t offer as much cargo space with rear seats folded as other crossover do.

 Cons Boxy styling is off-putting to some.

 Cons Other crossovers in this class offer seating for eight while flex only allows seven. The Enclave, Acadia and Traverse are prime examples.

 Cons Touchscreen icons can be slow moving and challenging to locate and press without taking your eyes off the road for too long.
