    Expert Rating

    2.65 (Fair)
    42 City / 38 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

    2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid OVERVIEW

    Choosing Your Ford C-Max Hybrid

    Getting a C-Max of any stripe means signing up for power delivery via a 2.0-liter gas engine that's hooked up to an electric motor powered by a lithium ion battery. The result is 188 total horsepower, a figure that Ford claims is best in class. The electric motor can also be the sole source of propulsion, and speed demons can rest easy – the C-Max can still reach up to 85 mph in pure electric mode.

    Other tricks in the C-Max's energy-saving goodie bag include active grille shutters, regenerative braking, and an extra-efficient eco-mode. All this green tech gives the C-Max an EPA-estimated rating of 42 miles per gallon city and 38 mpg highway, which falls just short of the Toyota Prius V's 43/39 mpg rating.

    The C-Max can be equipped in two distinct trims: the SE or Titanium.


    The 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid SE starts at $24,995 (prices include a $875 destination charge). The list of standard equipment includes LED lights, intermittent wipers, dual-zone climate control, four cup holders, one 110-volt outlet and two 12-volt power outlets, remote keyless entry, Ford's Sync infotainment system, a six-speaker audio system, a 10-way power driver's seat, a four-way manually adjustable passenger seat, an alarm, and a rearview camera.

    Available packages include: the SE Driver Assist Package ($1,315, Sync 3, a reverse sensing system, and a power liftgate) and the SE Comfort Package ($1,600, a 10-way power passenger seat, heated and leather front seats, and heated exterior mirrors). Standalone options include keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, voice-activated navigation, heated front seats, and reverse sensing.


    The Hybrid Titanium has a starting price tag of $28,150. It adds the contents of the SE Comfort and SE Driver Assist packages as standard equipment, as well as a chrome grille, fog lights, a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, cruise control, HomeLink, ambient lighting, remote start, Sync 3, and a nine-speaker sound system.

    The Titanium Driver Assist Package ($1,715) brings park assist, a hands-free power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a forward sensing system. Standalone options include the panoramic sunroof, power liftgate, hands-free power liftgate, park assist, and a voice-activated navigation system.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Both 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid trims offer good value for the money. For those looking to save a little and willing to make do with a little less tech, an SE equipped with either available package gives buyers a pleasing amount of useful features and a reasonable price tag.
