I sat in the back - the way-way back - of the Flex while someone else drove. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort in the least-spacious area, and though headroom was tight, there was plenty of legroom. Unlike some crossovers that compromise rear-seat window size for style, the Flex gives third-row passengers a good view of the passing scenery. You don't feel like you are in a clunky minivan, although it's clear you're riding in the back of a long-wheelbase vehicle. Kudos to Ford engineers for making the Flex feel a lot more lithe than it is, at least for the passenger.
