Each year, Kelley Blue Book calculates the top-rated hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric vehicles on the market based on efficiency, overall value, and owner ratings. The 2015 Ford C-MAX is Ford’s sole hybrid-only model, and this year it placed ninth out of the top ten green cars of 2015. Its nimble and energetic driving experience, strong design, and outstanding fuel economy make it a clear winner among the ever-widening selection of hybrid vehicles in today’s automotive market.
The Ford C-MAX uses a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine that registers 188 horsepower, a figure that tops all other vehicles in its class. The power-split architecture of the drivetrain ensures that the vehicle is constantly at peak efficiency, whether the engine and electric drive system are working together or independently. The C-MAX Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 40 combined MPG, and the plug-in hybrid C-MAX Energi model delivers an estimated 88 combined MPGe in full-electric mode and 38 combined MPG in hybrid mode. Both feature a SmartGauge with EcoGuide information display that gives the driver feedback on their driving habits and fosters more efficient driving.
The C-MAX provides a winning combination of efficiency and comfort with a five-seat cabin that features class-leading passenger volume as well as integrated storage compartments in the rear row floor. The folding rear seats can provide even greater storage when necessary. The C-MAX also features Ford’s available hands-free foot-activated liftgate, making it easy to access the cargo area even with your hands full.
Kelley Blue Book shows an 8 out of 10 customer satisfaction score for the Ford C-MAX, and between its spacious interior and stellar fuel economy it is easy to see why.
