With the C-MAX, Ford has shown it can compete with the best hybrids out there. The C-MAX is a stylish alternative to more established players like the Prius, while its combined 40 mpg fuel efficiency offers impressive mileage. Even better, after a generous federal tax credit, the Energi plug-in model is the most affordable plug-in hybrid in America, besting high-efficiency competitors such as the Chevy Volt, BMW i3 and Toyota Prius plug-in.

Compare the 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid

Loading Comparison...


The Ford C-Max, introduced for the 2013 model year and now in its sixth season, comes in Hybrid and Energi plug-in hybrid forms. There is no regular gas-engine variant.

The tall, compact hatchback gave Ford a contender against the popular, fuel efficient Toyota Prius. It is now a dated product. Except for two new colors, nothing has changed for the 2018 model year. A rearview camera became standard equipment for 2017.

The Hybrid version uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that works with a two-motor hybrid system, to generate 195 combined horsepower. In moderate low-speed driving, the 1.4-kWh lithium-ion battery lets the Hybrid travel about one mile on battery power alone.

The Energi version is a plug-in hybrid with a larger 7.6-kWh battery that provides an EPA-estimated electric-only range of about 20 miles, reaching as high as 62 mph. Several other plug-in hybrid models on the market have longer battery-only ranges.

Both will keep going as long as gasoline is in the tank.

Spacious and comfortable, the C-Max Hybrid lags a bit in fuel-economy estimates when compared to its hybrid-powertrain rivals. Each version has front-wheel drive.

SE and Titanium trim levels are available in both Hybrid and Energi versions.

Bulging a bit here and there, the hatchback body sits atop a foundation adapted from the Ford Focus hatchback. C-Max is considerably taller than Focus, on the order of a small minivan. Small tall cars have been popular in Europe, where the C-Max originated, but it never caught on in the U.S.

Crash-test ratings have been just passable. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2018 C-Max four stars (out of five) overall, with four stars for the frontal crash and for roof strength, but five stars for side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2017 C-Max its top rating: Good in all tests except the difficult small-offset frontal crash, which yielded a second-best Acceptable score for the driver (no rating for the passenger).

Blind-spot monitoring is standard, but Ford offers no advanced safety features for the C-Max.


Ford C-Max Hybrid SE ($24,120) comes with keyless entry, Sync, cloth seating, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, six-speaker audio, rearview camera, lighted glovebox, and back-seat heater vents. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $875 destination charge.) Titanium ($27,175) includes machined aluminum 17-inch wheels, Sync 3, pushbutton start, rain-sensing wipers, ambient lighting, leather-trimmed power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support, nine-speaker Sony audio, foglamps, and a reverse-sensing proximity-warning system.

C-Max Energi SE ($27,120) is equipped similar to Hybrid SE, but with plug-in hybrid powertrain and is available in Titanium ($30,129) trim.

Options include a foot-operated hands-free power tailgate, heated mirrors with turn indicators, Sync 3, navigation, and a Parking Technology package that can steer the C-Max into a parking space.


A thick and bulgy basic shape gives the tall-bodied C-Max an ungainly demeanor. Detail work amplifies the chunky, bottom-heavy effect, which leads some critics to brand the C-Max as dumpy.

Up front in the stubby nose, a traditional trapezoidal-shaped grille reinforces brand identity and kinship to other Ford vehicles. Relatively small wheels fit within big wheel arches, accented by creases. If anything, those wheels make the bodyside angles and accents, as well as the windows, look even more curious. At the rear is a comparatively vertical tailgate.


Spacious and flexible, the C-Max cabin seats four adults in comfort and feels like near-premium quality.

For a compact car, the tall body surrounds impressive cabin space. As measured by the federal government, interior volume falls just short of midsize classification. Not only is the cabin appealing, it’s quiet when rolling down the road. Plentiful sound insulation and active noise cancellation quash engine and road noises.

Luggage space at the rear is substantially less expansive, largely due to the position of the hybrid powertrain’s battery. Space is even more minimal in the Energi edition. Cargo volume of the C-Max Hybrid is 25 cubic feet with the rear seatback upright, or 52 cubic feet with the seat folded. In the Energi plug-in, volumes total 19.2 and 42.8 cubic feet, respectively. The rear seat folds and lowers by moving one lever.

In both versions, the cargo floor is notably higher than the tailgate opening. With the back seat folded, using the multi-level floor can be a challenge.

Elevated C-Max height makes it easy to enter and exit. Soft-touch materials complement appealing seat fabrics, conveying a traditional, high-quality effect. Moderate brightwork sets off the stylish dashboard.

Front seats are comfortable and suitably-bolstered. Leg space is abundant in both front and rear, but back seat bottoms are low. Standard upholstery is recycled synthetic cloth, but leather is available for upper-trim models.

Instruments and controls enhance the impression of premium quality. User-configurable screens can display preferred information. Sync 3 voice-control and infotainment with an 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard in Titanium trim, optional for SE.

Driving Impressions

Smooth and quiet on the road, the C-Max drives easily, delivering a well-composed and refined ride. Still, C-Max lacks the supple, tight feeling of the Focus hatchback that serves as its foundation.

Passengers will feel the suspension firmness on some flawed pavement surfaces. Precise steering provides good feel, making it easier to position the C-Max in its lane.

Although the C-Max is pleasant to drive, it’s relatively heavy, which translates to rather slow acceleration. Swift enough when starting off, acceleration weakens at higher speeds. Many hybrid rivals, even with less-powerful engines, deliver stronger performance.

Unlike some hybrids, the C-Max does an admirable job of blending regenerative and friction braking. An “L” mode raises the level of regenerative braking.

Fuel economy trails that of some hybrid competitors. The 2018 C-Max is EPA-rated at 42/38 mpg City/Highway, or 40 mpg Combined. That’s far below estimates for the current Prius. The C-Max Energi is EPA-rated at 39 mpg Combined. Eco displays can help drivers maximize fuel economy.


C-Max models are well-equipped, promising good value, especially when discounts are available to boost sales. Though beaten by various rivals, C-Max remains among the most fuel-efficient cars offered by Ford. It’s a dated product, however.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
