One of my companies "perks" is that we get a car package. Well I was told that I will be getting a new 2014/15 car in a few weeks. The company will pay for the car, pay for all gas, insurance, maintenance, etc. it will be completely free for me to use.

The only kicker is that there are 2 approved cars that I can get. I need your help deciding which car that will be. (The option of getting they car, then selling it, is not an option, I only can have one of the two choices below....). Also I have to assume I will either get the base model or a lower end model with only a few upgrades.

Option 1: 2014 Ford Flex

My pros

-bigger SUV, seats 7, lots of space, better features and technology.

Cons

-it's ugly

Option 2: 2014 Ford Taurus

http://www.edmunds.com/ford/taurus/2014/

Pros:

Slightly better looking, more respectable

Cons:

Not as much technology, not as spacious

The edge is ugly but I drove one from Denver to Louisiana. It was a rental car but I did like everything it offered. Plus they're paying for the gas. Go big or go home

Since I have kids and haul poo around I would get the Flex...  so it depends on what you're gonna do with it.

 

The Flex isn't the best looking car on the road, but so what...

Probably go with the suv since they footing the bill. More space to carry things.

I want to run people off the road that thought that buying a flex was a good option

 

I road in the new taurus....meh as well. I used to own one 15 years ago and loved it.

 

I would pry take a fusion or a focus over either

Also, I have kids and I like to haul...I'm not trying to impress anyone with a car these days.

Lol, my wife thinks I should get he taurus because she thinks the flex is ugly and she doesn't know why I would need the extra space
