Ford’s C-Max Hybrid for 2016 (and its plug-in stablemate, the C-Max Energi) obliterate the hybrid-car stereotype, offering a liberal dose of style, creature comforts and sporty handling....

Fast, roomy, easy on the wallet at the gas station.

For a hybrid it is fast! Love that I can drive back and forth from home to work and still not have to fill up the tank but every 7-9 days. I drive about 50 miles total a day. I have the sel and love all the extra features, heated leather seats, panoramic roof, ambient interior lights, GPS, Sirius radio, CD player, USB connection, and hands free phone connection. Myself and husband are 6 ft tall and 6'4 and we have plenty of head room and leg room. We have two giant car seats in the back and our tall kids have good legroom as well. Having the hatchback gives us extra storage space so we can pack for a long trip and even weekend camping trips. We prefer taking the c-max because of the great gas/electric mileage for most trips and quick errands. Imagine getting to your destination 7 hours away and not needing to fill the tank until it is time to leave.

Ford c-max: highs and lows.

I love my Ford c-max. The only thing is space is a little small in the front and the trunk. When you charge it, you only get about 20 miles of it before it switches to gas. Luckily I do not drive very far each day so not too big of a deal for me. We have a little one and it is fine for the 3 of us but when we have another baby we will definitely need to upgrade to something more spacious. The interior is very nice. I love the leather seats and the music system. Overall a great car.

This is a very reliable and gas efficient car.

I have found the vehicle to be very reliable. I have only done routine maintenance on the car. My gas mileage averages about 44/gallon. The car is comfortable enough. The only thing that bothers me is the glove compartment which has space between the shelves and the cover so everything slides off the shelf. Same with the rear storage. The hatch is not flush with the floor of the cargo area so items get between it and the hatch and fall out on the ground when you open it.
