The 2017 Ford C-Max is appealing on many levels, beginning with its roomy, quiet cabin. From behind the wheel, the C-Max feels incredibly comfortable and supportive, so lengthy commutes breeze by. The C-Max also provides an elevated view of the road - much like a crossover - to boost driver confidence and general visibility. In back, you'll discover an abundance of head and leg room, which means that, on top of everything, this hatchback hybrid is family-friendly. As you cruise at highway speeds, the C-Max cabin remains hushed, making it a great choice for your next road trip.

When you choose the C-Max's new Sync 3 infotainment system, you won't be disappointed. Its central touchscreen is crisp and clear, and its new menu system was designed with ease-of-use in mind. Even if you've never dealt with infotainment technology, you'll figure out Sync 3 in no time. It's your central hub for smartphone app integration options, including Pandora Internet radio and hands-free calling capabilities. The voice-controlled navigation system is equally accessible, guiding you through unfamiliar streets with ease. Should any of your favorite passengers want to do a little homework on the go, the 110-volt, household-style power outlet keeps laptops charged and ready for action.

The 2017 Ford C-Max hybrid powertrain is a big part of this model's incredible appeal. For starters, it earns 42 city/37 highway mpg and supplies huge savings at the pump. The continuously variable transmission adds to the C-Max's fuel-efficient ride, but it also offers quick responses to driver input. This means sporty handling and - when you add the C-Max's sharp steering into the mix - an entertaining ride in any setting.

This innovative hybrid also lends itself to high-tech passenger protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the C-Max Hybrid its top score of "Good" in a barrage of tests. Clever tech features, like the rearview camera, help you spot danger in advance. Ford's MyKey technology is a parent's best friend, setting speed and stereo volume limitations for teenage drivers. The 911 Assist feature uses your smartphone to automatically contact emergency services after a collision.
