Better View than my Prius

Reviewed by Hybrid Lover

I love my new C-Max Hybrid! I've driven a Prius IV Hybrid for more than 5 years and the gas mileage is great, but as I get older, it was too hard and painful on my knees getting in and out of it since it sits so low to the ground. That's what put me in the hunt for something new and I wanted to stick with the Hybrid technology. The Prius C and Prius V both have the same problem -- sit too low to the ground -- so were not an option. My search for a hybrid with a higher seat (and roof, since I'm taller than average) landed on the Ford C-Max, which is a crossover. It's taller than the Prius and with the 10-way adjustable electronic seat, I was able to find a comfortable seat and still have headroom. Now my knees don't complain every time I get in and out! The C-Max also has better visibility all around than the Prius. I have no need for a big SUV (and the poor gas milage that go with them) so didn't want to go for anything bigger (which also would mean a bigger price tag). The C-Max was the perfect fit for my size, comfort, fuel efficiency and price. The ride is quiet, smooth, comfortable, and it handles well with a tight turning radius. The C-Max checked all my boxes and I'm still thrilled with it after driving it about 500 miles -- and still haven't had to put gas in it!

Pleasure to drive

Love the hybrid running. Many comfort options. Sync 3 can take care of everything! Good value. Less than thrilled by the exterior look, limited storage over rear battery, no spare tire, weird storage in console, and tight leg room for the rear seats. Nits as the car runs great.

Driving my C-Max is an absolute pleasure. I have had the car just over a month and haven't had to put more gas in it yet. It rides really smoothly and provides the space of an SUV without the standard trucklike features of most SUVs. Extremely satisfied.

It is quiet. I'm getting 40+ mpg. Seat is comfortable and passengers like the seat adjustments. Room for tall people in back. Can put my Lions items - Vision Screening Equipment, Displays etc easily in the back. Love the open/close with a waive of my foot. Also individual AC and heated seat settings.
