Quick Look

The 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid aims to take on the hybrid giant that is the Toyota Prius. The good news is that, for the most part, this little vehicle succeeds, especially in the areas that matter, one of which is fuel economy. So, those looking for the North American alternative to Toyota’s super-successful hatchback should definitely give this vehicle a look.




Full Review

The 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid is one of Ford’s dedicated hybrid cars – alongside the C-Max Energi. As such, you won’t find the gasoline-powered version of this car anywhere, because it doesn’t exist. This means that this hybrid means to square off against the Toyota Prius and Prius V. The real question then is whether the C-Max can compete against it.

On the outside, the 2015 C-Max looks sporty, which is understandable, given that it relies on the sporty Ford Focus as a base. The hybrid has a somewhat aggressive front end and perky backside. The large trapezoidal grille that now appears throughout most of the Ford lineup is the reason why the front has that aggressiveness to it. The profile sports an arched roofline, a high beltline and ridiculously bulbous proportions – which you will only notice from very specific angles. It does have a few flowing lines to conceal those, which include highlighted wheel arches and a slight haunch of the back wheel, but they don’t always do their job properly. In other words, the Prius is definitely the prettier car out of the two.

Inside, the C-Max offers a stylish dash, soft-touch surfaces and even some brightwork, which make this hybrid seem more upscale than the hard-plastics-afflicted Prius. The dashboard here is an offshoot from the rich and stylish version in the Focus, which means you’ll get highly configurable colour displays and more. Some of the features include a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with USB and auxiliary input jacks, an illuminated glove box, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, back-seat heater vents, the Sync voice-controls system and the SmartGauge digital display system with InfoGuide screens. If you go for the SEL trim, you will get Sync with MyFord Touch, a push-button start with proximity sensing, rain-sensing wipers, a reversing proximity warning system, heated and leather-trimmed front seats as well as ambient LED interior lighting.

Under the hood, the new Ford C-Max comes with 195-horsepower powertrain, which delivers 54 horsepower more than the Prius. You get this power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and electric motor system, which makes the C-Max feel more agile than the Prius, despite being several hundred pounds heavier. The electric motor can power the car alone at speeds of up to 100 km/h. The C-Max’s 1.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack sits right under the load floor, just behind the rear seat. The fuel economy ranges from six to eight kilometres per hour, which is good for this sort vehicle – especially because the Prius delivers about the same amount.

Overall, the 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid is a very good car that does everything within its power to deliver great efficiency. It’s no perfect, but it is comparable to the competition, which means that it’s definitely worth the money – if you are looking for a decent hybrid vehicle, that is.

Power and Performance:

Whether you get the 2015 Ford C-Max with a charging plug (as the C-Max Energi) or opt for the Hybrid, what you get is a relatively responsive full hybrid that allows you to creep along at lower speeds in electric-only mode, or otherwise earn many more miles per gallon than most non-hybrid models its size.

The powertrain in the 2015 C-Max altogether delivers 195 horsepower -- which is a significant 54 hp more than that of the Toyota Prius. With its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motor system, the C-Max feels noticeably perkier and less stressed than than that of the Prius, even though the C-Max is several hundred pounds heavier. The C-Max will quite easily move along gently at lower speeds in electric-only mode, then start the gasoline engine and blend it seamlessly as you gather speed or increase acceleration. The drivetrain uses a planetary-gear power distribution, like the Prius, and smartly recovers as much energy as it smoothly can when braking or coasting.

Interiors and Special Features:

With modern styling for the dash, soft-touch surfaces, and just modest touches of brightwork, the C-Max interior is arguably far more upscale in look and feel than the hard-plastic 'flying buttress' interior of the current Toyota Prius. With a rich and stylish dashboard that builds on the look of the Focus (and looks like it has some commonality with what's used in the Escape (including colorful, configurable displays), it's definitely more of a premium look.

Safety features:

All C-MAX models come standard with dual front, side and full-length side curtain airbags in addition to a driver's knee airbag, traction and stability control systems and emergency brake assist.
