Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The compact C-Max hatchback is what we like to call a natural hybrid, a car designed from the ground up to run on a combination of electricity and gasoline. There's no conventional gas engine available, and the C-Max doesn't need one. Its performance is about as snappy as it gets in this efficiency-obsessed class.

What's New for 2015

The C-Max carries over unchanged.

Choosing Your Ford C-Max

The C-Max uses the same hybrid powerplant and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) as the more expensive Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans, so you needn't worry about being relegated to the slow lane. The 2-liter four-cylinder gas engine and electric motor together produce 188 horsepower and deliver 40 mpg in combined driving. Though its EPA estimates can't top those of its chief rival the Toyota Prius, the C-Max is significantly faster and more adept at tackling curves. With the rear seat folded, the C-Max can handle up to 53 cubic-feet of cargo.

The C-Max is offered in two trim levels:

Ford C-Max Hybrid


Includes all the basic convenience features for this class, plus dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, Bluetooth phone and audio, integrated smartphone apps and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and Internet radio. Equipment Group 201A gets you rear parking sensors, a power liftgate and ambient interior lighting. You can build on that with Group 202A, which adds satellite radio and the MyFord Touch infotainment interface. Group 203A includes everything in the previous two groups, plus navigation with real-time traffic info. The standalone Winter package adds heated seats and mirrors to any configuration.

Ford C-Max Hybrid


Gets all of the SE's options as standard (except the power liftgate and navigation), then adds leather upholstery, a power driver seat, fog lamps, automatic wipers, keyless ignition, multicolor interior lighting and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. As with the SE, there are three successive option packages. Group 301A consists of navigation and a nine-speaker Sony sound system with HD radio. 302A tacks on a rearview camera and a power liftgate with hands-free operation. Finally, 303A tops things off with front parking sensors and an automated parking system.

A fixed panoramic sunroof and remote start are available as single options on any C-Max.

CarsDirect Tip

There's a $3,000 difference between the SE and SEL, which isn't much given the latter's array of standard equipment. Unless price is your chief concern, the SEL is the way to go in our view.
