2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2014 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 Lexus CT 200h, 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 Lexus CT 200h.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus CT 200h as you will with the Ford C-Max Hybrid, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Lexus CT 200h 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 Destination Charge for the Lexus CT 200h is much higher than that for the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus CT 200h is much slimmer than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus CT 200h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus CT 200h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus CT 200h 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 Lexus CT 200h and the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus CT 200h than that of the Ford C-Max Hybrid.
