You'll Like This Car If...
If you're seeking a fuel-efficient hybrid car with a small footprint but generous interior space, the C-Max is worth a look. It has a more conservative design and is more fun to drive than its main rival, the Toyota Prius. Unlike the Prius Prime, C-Max Energi plug-in models have seating for five.
You May Not Like This Car If...
For nearly the C-Max's $25,000 starting price, the Toyota Prius is significantly more efficient and now comes with a slew of advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking. The all-new Hyundai Ioniq, meanwhile, promises fresh technology wrapped into a sleek design.
What's New for 2017
For 2017, the C-Max's former SEL top trim is replaced by the Titanium, which brings features like a power-adjustable passenger seat and Sony premium audio system. Blind-spot monitoring is now optional, and a rearview camera becomes standard. The available Sync3 infotainment system has been upgraded to offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
