About Ford C-MAX Hybrid

The 2017 Ford C-Max is a gas-electric hybrid car that offers good fuel economy and ample storage thanks to its hatchback design. Like its rival the Toyota Prius and the forthcoming Hyundai Ioniq, this compact Ford is also available as a plug-in hybrid, called the C-Max Energi, which offers up to 19 miles of pure electric range before the gasoline engine kicks in. The C-Max is more athletic than the Prius, but it can't touch the Toyota's fuel economy. Where the C-Max is rated at 41 mpg/city, the latest Prius earns up to 58 mpg. Yet the C-Max has a few tricks up its sleeve, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a hands-free power-operated hatchback that rises with the swipe of your foot.

"I got my SE Hybrid used with nearly 27K miles. It still smelled brand new! It is 30K miles later, I have had no major issues with this car. The battery went dead overnight a few times from leaving a cooler plugged in, or the radfio on too long sitting parked. Easily jump started. The car sits low to the ground and has a cover underneath for aerodynamics that has to be removed for oil changes. Easier to just take it in, not saving a lot doing it myself. I had a flasher bulb go out. The headlight assembly was difficult to remove. Im getting 35-42 mpg between fill ups over 30k miles, depends how it is driven. When driving carefuly to maximize fuel, Im getting 42mpg overall. My driving is frequent, often 12 hours per day in city and highway operating as a Uber driver. It easily hauls 4 adults up and down the hills of San Francisco, Ca. I have driven it over Highways 50 and 80 in the Sierras. It accelerates well up steep inclines. It also uses gears to keep the car at speed limit during downhill on cruise. Very roomy interior. The drivers seat and car overall has a lot of head room. There is also a lot of shoulder room up front.Mt back seat passengers are mostly impressed with the back seat room. The drive is quiet, and smooth. It handles the road well. Comfortable to drive for long periods of time. Cargo space could be a bit larger, but Im still able haul enough luggage for 2-3 people to the airport. I havent missed an airport run yet, and I usually carry a bag of supplies for my self in the car."

"Purchased a Ruby Red SE 2016 C Max at the end of June 2016. Love the handling and the MPG -- we get around 42-43 on the road. Biggest feature was going 3.1 miles to our local "Wally World" and realizing 50-70 mpg, with more than half of the trip as EV. Went back to the selling dealer four days after initial purchase of our SE, and purchased a second 2016 C Max Kona Blue SEL model. Very pleased with our C Max "family". Cars handle exceptionally well, even on long trips (family funeral in Elmira NY, 2500 miles total trip)."

"First car that I have simply loved. For the price and for the gas mileage this car has been superior. It handles well and has the get up and go that is needed for mountain driving. I have been able to put it into cruise control at 70 mph going up steep grades and have it hold its speed. The visibility you have in this car is fantastic very little in the way of blind spots. I have put 190,000 miles on this car and it runs like a top. Have not had any mechanical issue. Again I love this car and my next car will be a CMax"
