2014 Ford Flex vs. 2015 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Toyota Venza. The Ford Flex will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

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 Venza, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Flex or the Toyota Venza, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Flex and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is a little wider than the Toyota Venza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Flex does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Ford Flex has the same turning radius as the Toyota Venza, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Flex is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Flex greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Flex has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Venza.

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