2017 Ford Flex vs. 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Flex, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Flex as you will with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Flex will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Flex will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Flex, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Flex transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Utility
The Ford Flex has less seating than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, making the Toyota Highlander Hybrid the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Flex as you will in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
