Engine & Performance

Ford uses a four cylinder 2.0 liter engine coupled with an electric motor for the C-MAX. Combined, the car is able to produce 188 horsepower. The transmission is Ford’s ECVT (Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission).

The C-MAX driving experience is similar to the one of a regular family car. The reduced battery weight helps the car maintain an optimal road grip without putting too much pressure on the engine.

The exterior of the C-MAX Hybrid makes it difficult to differentiate it from other models of the same lineup. On the outside, Ford gives the impression of a generous interior due to its height and length.

The front of the car is equipped with a wide grill and an air vent underneath, lending the overall look of a family car. The rear is simple in terms of design with no chrome elements and extended taillights that cross-over to the side of the car.


The inside of the C-MAX looks like a decently polished car. The central panel and placement of air vents gives it a symmetric look across the driver and front passenger seats.

Chrome elements can be found on the steering wheel and on the dashboard.

Ford’s hybrid manages to outlast many other models in terms of mileage per full charge. The 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid aims to the choice for drivers who want an eco-friendly family car.
