2016 Ford C-Max Walk Around


The C-Max is tall and round-looking. With a vertical liftgate and slab sides, it looks like a wagon, or a minivan around the windows. Its big trapezoid grille shouts Ford. The snub nose climbs to a high beltline and arched roofline that drops down to a pert tail.

Interior

The cabin is sporty and charming, with a rich dash of soft-touch materials, more upscale than the odd interior of the new Prius. Ample insulation and active noise cancellation help it feel refined inside. The instrumentation is easier to understand than the Prius, as the C-Max color displays can be programmed to show the information you want.

Spacious and comfortable, the C-Max can handle four adults. There’s good headroom and legroom in the rear. The rear seats are mounted low to the floor, however, and our tester found his knees under his chin.

Cargo space is sufficient in the C-Max Hybrid, but the Energi model’s larger battery pack puts an awkward rise in the cargo floor that gets in the way of loading luggage and other cargo.
