2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid Video

In the 2013 C-Max Hybrid, Ford has given us a worthy, if middle-of-the-road, opponent for the Toyota Prius. Though substantially shorter than the Prius, this wider, taller hybrid hatchback still manages a hefty appearance with fuel-efficiency ratings and cargo space ranking between those of leading competitors, says Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The C-Max Hybrid succeeds in driving dynamics, but struggles with some interior issues. Does it have what it takes to pose a serious threat to the Prius? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
