Perhaps we spoke to soon, and Flex-fix will be available, after all. Let’s hope we find out soon enough.
As we mentioned last week, the Opel Mokka will offer Flex-Fix — an integrated bike rack that is capable of fitting three bicycles at a time. When the rack isn’t in use, it can be conveniently stored in the Encore’s rear bumper — as if it was never there in the first place. Here’s a demonstration of Flex-Fix on the Opel Meriva:
Besides the Meriva, the Flex-Fix is available on the Opel Corsa, Astra, Antara, and now the Mokka. Unfortunately, Flex-Fix will not be offered on the Buick Encore — which brings us to the following question: is Buick, an aspiring luxury marque, not worthy of this uniquely unparalleled piece of convenience?
