2017 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford C-Max Hybrid than the Chevrolet Volt, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford C-Max Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Volt will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt and the Ford C-Max Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Volt is a little narrower than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Volt, which is slightly longer than the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Volt has much less torque than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a smaller turning radius than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt is significantly less powerful than the Ford C-Max Hybrid. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Volt and the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Volt comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford C-Max Hybrid.
