    C-Max Hybrid Review & video - TTAC

    Review: 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid (Video) - TheTruthAboutCars
    By Alex L. Dykes on December 14, 2012

    "Instead of sharing heavily with the Focus hatch as you might assume, the C-MAX shares parts and interior styling with the 2013 Escape...
    ...Unlike the Prius, you won’t find any thin, hard, weight saving plastics in the cabin. There are no blue-tinted transparent button arrays, no shifter joystick and no center-mounted disco dash either. Instead you will find a premium cabin that would pass muster in any $30,000 vehicle and looks notably more premium than the Lexus CT 200h. The Prius on the other hand is full of plastics and fabrics more at home in a $16,000 econo-box."

    "Coupled with a Focus derived suspension, the tires help the C-MAX set a new benchmark for hybrid handling easily besting the CT 200h."

    "This new battery allows the C-MAX to drive electric only up to 62MPH vs the 34MPH of the Prius. In addition, the C-MAX doesn’t need you to be as gentle on the throttle as the Prius or the older Ford hybrids."

    "...a Prius... the C-MAX sprints to 60MPH 2 seconds faster posting a solid 7 second run to highway speeds. I’d like to compare it to the Prius V and Lexus CT 200h, but I gave up after 9.5 seconds."

    "Ford’s sound deadening measures are extensive and make the C-MAX the quietest hybrid this side of the insane LS 600hL."

    I'm not saying it'd be better to have Chinese MFGs,
    who don't RECOGNIZE our Laws, selling their vehicles in the U.S
    than DubDub who doesn't RESPECT our Laws;

    I'm saying there's no meaningful difference;
    and I doN'T want EITHER

    He talks fast (to get his message across in limited time) but it was very informative.
    Please upload a better copy: the last couple of minutes are missing the audio.

    This is an impressive vehicle for Ford. Maybe they can offer a CNG version if possible.

    Nice video (except the last few minutes) for the C-Max and for Ford. I would buy this car over the Toyota without question or buyers remorse.
