2016 Ford Flex Interior and Exterior Redesign
The new Ford Flex has been revamped and will come with many revolutionary changes. It has been designed to look like a futuristic crossover vehicle.
On the outside the 2016 Ford Flex has a straight design. It also looks very boxy in keeping with the earlier Ford Flex models. The car has been designed to give a slightly different look. The fascia has been extended and the dimensions of the grille have also changed as too the introduction of angled tailgate and headlights that help to do away with all contrasting colors.
On the inside, the car looks different to the earlier models. The leather-trimmed seats are very comfortable and with three rows of seating the car has the ability to accommodate up to six people. There is also a nice two-inch touch screen display and there are also twelve speakers that produce the best quality sound. The cabin has been redesigned though the changes made to it are quite sporadic by nature. The seats will have the same upholstery. The cabin appears to be roomy because of the angularity of its shape. The only problem is that reaching the back seats is not all that easy. In the top end models, the company has provided wood accents in a dashboard that has undergone some redesign work. There is a 4.2-inch touch screen display that completes the instrument panel and as mentioned the Sony twelve speaker audio system belts out a lot of entertainment in terms of top-notch audio reproduction. There are six airbags and the Ford Flex also comes with both traction as well as stability controls and it also has anti-lock brakes. You can also opt for parking sensors and a rearview camera.
