2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid vs. 2015 Scion FR-S Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford C-Max Hybrid than the Scion FR-S. The Ford C-Max Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion FR-S.

Convenience
With the Ford C-Max Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Scion FR-S, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford C-Max Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion FR-S. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford C-Max Hybrid will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion FR-S.

Dimensions
Since the Ford C-Max Hybrid is much wider than the Scion FR-S, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which is slightly longer than the Scion FR-S.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford C-Max Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Scion FR-S.

Handling
The Ford C-Max Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Scion FR-S, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Ford C-Max Hybrid offers greater seating capacity than the Scion FR-S, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford C-Max Hybrid will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion FR-S.

The Ford C-Max Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion FR-S.
