The 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid is a 5-door hatchback hybrid. This year, it remains largely unchanged. However, its trim levels have been revised to two: the SE and Titanium.
From the front, the C-Max Hybrid is styled similarly to the Ford Fiesta hatchback. The front-end features angry headlights and a dual stacked grille as well as a segment lower fascia. However, the C-Max’s clustered taillight design is completely different to the Fiesta’s pillar design. Standard features include LED signature lighting, power side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a center high-mounted stop light, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Heated side mirrors, a panoramic moonroof, a power liftgate, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are available as well.
Under the hood, the C-Max Hybrid is powered by a 188-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor mated to an electronically controlled continuously variable automatic transmission. At the time of this writing, fuel economy was not yet rated by the EPA.
Inside, the C-Max Hybrid has a two-tone cloth interior and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. Cargo space is 42.8 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features the standard SYNC audio system that include CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the SYNC3 multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, voice command recognition, two USB ports, and a Sony premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, power windows/locks, remote keyless entry, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and ambient lighting are also available.
Standard safety features include an advanced airbag system, antilock brakes, an electronic stability control system, a backup camera, and a post-collision notification.
