Ford C-MAX

2017
Ford C-MAX 2017 wagon Trim Shown: 2017 Hybrid SE wagon FWD CVT
Based on the compact Focus, the five-passenger C-Max hybrid is a clever, quiet, spacious, and practical hatchback. It rides well and handles capably. Regenerative braking helps with fuel economy but makes the brake pedal feel touchy. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder and electric motor deliver adequate acceleration and seamless transitions between gas and electric power, and the C-Max can run in electric mode up to about 40 mph. We measured an excellent 37 mpg overall. The Energi plug-in can travel in electric-only mode for about 18 miles before switching to hybrid operation. It takes 6 hours to charge on 120-volt and 2 hours on 240-volt. Ford's new Sync 3 infotainment system is standard.

Ford C-MAX 2016
Remarkably efficient, the design of the Ford C-Max hybrid packs an impressive amount of room and utility into a small footprint. Outward visibility is great, though the driving position could be a bit more spacious. While the rear seat is a bit flat and low, it's roomy enough to seat three. On the tech front, Ford's optional Sync 3 infotainment touchscreen is highly intuitive and readily accessible. Ford's MyKey system allows parents to program their teenaged driver's key to limit top speed and radio volume, as well as inform them if the car ventures outside of a specific geographic area. However, a backup camera is part of an expensive options package and cargo space is somewhat compromised by the large battery pack.
