For a mixture of functionality and efficiency, the 2017 Ford C-Max is a tremendous vehicle. The five-door hatchback design lets you transport a mixture of people and things, with plenty of room for comfort. You also enjoy practical onboard technologies that keep you informed and connected. No matter if you're on the hunt for an electric vehicle or hybrid car, you can either one with the Ford C-Max.
These two cars take a slightly different approach to moving you forward. The Ford C-Max Hybrid features a 2.0-litre Atkinson-Cycle inline four-cylinder engine. It works with an electric motor, and the two generate a maximum 188 horsepower. The electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery, with regenerative brakes helping replenish it as you drive.
Working with the hybrid powertrain is a special electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT). Thanks to a unique design, it can send power from the engine or electric motor to the front wheels, all without noticeable gear transitions. It makes for a more comfortable and seamless driving experience.
You get the same powertrain setup for the Ford C-Max Energi, plus one important addition. This model is a plug-in hybrid, meaning you can plug it into an electrical outlet or a charging station to replenish the battery. In fact, Ford offers a 240-volt charging station as an option, which must be installed by an electrician. This lets you charge the battery at night, in the convenience of your garage.
Not only is the Ford C-Max an advanced car when it comes to the powertrain, Ford includes quite a few impressive onboard systems. An SOS Post-Crash Alert System automatically activates the horn after a collision, plus puts on the emergency flashers. This innovation helps you avoid getting struck a second time by other vehicles.
To help you get around, the available voice-activated navigation lets you keep your hands on the steering wheel. You speak to get directions, and the GPS technology plus 3-D mapping help guide the way. This system even provides audible turn-by-turn directions.
With the standard SmartGauge with EcoGuide, you learn to alter driving habits for maximum efficiency. Customizable displays help you see how you drive affects fuel consumption. This feature even records you performance over time, making it easier than ever to view improvement and understand trends.
