Ford’s electrification strategy seems to be firing on all cylinders. First, the Ford FocusElectric Vehicle (EV) and now this, the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid! It’s a hybrid-only model set to take on the Toyota Prius V. Can it compete? We recently spent some time with this all-new Hybrid model and will help you answer that very question with our in-depth review and comparison. Let’s see how they stack up.
One of the most innovative features of the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid is the EcoCruise cruise control setting which dials in very precise settings to ensure the most fuel efficient ride possible.
Of course being a Ford product, the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid features the MyFord Touch touchscreen. Ford has now introduced redundant buttons and knobs in addition to the slide and touch controls of the touchscreen for climate and stereo so that you’re not forced to tap or slide if it’s uncomfortable to do so while on the road.
From the outside, the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid looks allot like a grown up Focus. That’s because it shares the same platform as well as kinetic design language.
Exterior color options include: Ice Storm, Sterling Grey, Blue Candy, Ingot Silver, Oxford White, Ruby Red, Tuxedo Black, and White Platinum.
