2015 Nissan 370Z vs. 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford C-Max Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z and the Ford C-Max Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan 370Z is about the same width as the Ford C-Max Hybrid. The Nissan 370Z is slightly shorter than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan 370Z does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z has a much more powerful engine than the Ford C-Max Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Nissan 370Z seats a lot fewer people than the Ford C-Max Hybrid. The Nissan 370Z has significantly less cargo room than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Nissan 370Z comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford C-Max Hybrid.
