Ford C-MAX Performance and Hybrid Info
The 2018 C-MAX Hybrid offers strong acceleration, with a 4-cylinder engine producing 188-horsepower. It’s sprightly and versatile on city streets, but also can rev up on the highway, too. When it comes to gas mileage, this car shines: it receives an EPA-estimated 42 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. This means fewer stops at the pump and more time to enjoy your drive.
The SmartGauge with EcoGuide is a helpful tool, offering customizable LCD displays that explain driving habits and how you can impact vehicle efficiency. These features, like Energy History, Energy Coach, and Efficiency Leaves, work in concert to improve driving performance and keep an eye on things, so you get the most out of your hybrid vehicle.
Ford C-MAX Hybrid Interior
There’s spacious seating for five inside. Front headroom checks in at 41 inches, while rear headroom is a comfortable 39.4 inches. When it comes to legroom, there’s plenty of space to stretch out up front, 43.1 inches, as a matter of fact. The back is also roomy, with 36.5 inches of legroom.
Heated front seats are a convenient available feature, making each ride a bit more comfortable on the cloth or leather trim. A 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is also available, allowing you to find the perfect setting for any drive. The available panoramic moonroof lets light in, so everyone can enjoy the sun. There are in-floor storage compartments found behind the front seats, where you can store smaller items like a tablet or laptop. To use up to 52.6 cu. ft. of cargo space, fold down the 60/40 split rear seat.
Ford Tech and Safety Features
The available SYNC® 3 infotainment system comes in handy, with an intuitive touchscreen and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability. Pick your favorite songs from any playlist, use map applications or read text messages on the touchscreen. The available voice-activated navigation picks up on what you’re saying to provide turn-by-turn directions and maps of the road ahead.
Get into those tight spaces with active park assist, which finds a spot and can steer the C-MAX Hybrid into it. Available Blind Spot technology will let you know if a car is approaching in any blind spots, or if there’s a car approaching from the side while you’re backing up.
