2016 Ford C-Max Buyer's Guide

Many drivers see the benefits of owning an electric car, and would happily take the plunge if they didn’t have to worry about limited range issues potentially leaving them stranded someplace far from the nearest electrical outlet. Another concern is facing an inordinate period of waiting before the car is sufficiently charged to get them going once again. A good compromise is a plug-in hybrid like the 2016 Ford C-Max Energi. Offering a range of 20 miles on electricity alone, but also having a gasoline engine on board to keep it going should the electricity run out, the Ford negates range anxiety—while still offering the benefits of electric car ownership. For similar advantages at a lower price point, Ford also offers the C-Max Hybrid.

What makes it move?

The 2016 Ford C-Max Energi hybrid powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter normally aspirated inline four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission paired with an electric motor to produce a total system output of 188 horsepower—feeding the front wheels. The electric motor draws its power from a 7.6 kWh battery pack. Because the plug-in C-Max Energi uses a larger battery pack than the standard C-Max Hybrid (1.4 kWh), it’s rated to be good for a range of up to 20 miles on electric power alone.

Why buy the 2016 Ford C-Max?

Ford’s C-Max is designed with maximum efficiency and utility in mind. Four doors and a hatchback maximize available space. With the rear seat folded, the 2016 Ford C-Max Wagon is good for 52.6 cubic feet of cargo, and 24.5 with the rear seat deployed. The plug-in C-Max Energi’s fuel economy is rated at 40 miles per gallon city, 36 highway, and 38 combined. Meanwhile, C-Max Hybrid is rated at 42 city, 37 highway, and 40 combined. Standard safety features include ABS, traction control, stability control, front airbags, front side airbags, a pair of full-length side curtain airbags, and a knee airbag for the driver. Ford’s 911 Assist will call for emergency assistance in the event of an airbag deployment—if paired to a compatible smartphone.
