2013 Ford C-Max
2013 Ford C-Max

New For 2013

Everything—the C-Max is a new vehicle for Ford’s U.S. lineup, although it has been on sale in other markets for several years.

Overview

Although the nameplate has been used in Europe for almost a decade, the C-Max is an all-new vehicle for the American market. Ford’s designated Toyota Prius fighter, the C-Max is a four-door hatchback with a hybrid powertrain. The 141-hp, 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine is aided by a 118-hp electric motor and a small lithium-ion battery pack, resulting in a peak total of 188 hp. (This hybrid powertrain is also used in the new Fusion.) It teams with a continuously variable transmission to earn the C-Max a rating of 47 mpg in both city and highway driving, which surpasses the Prius V by 3 mpg in the city and 7 mpg on the highway. In electric mode, 62 mph is possible. Commendably, the interaction between the gas and electric powertrain components is seamless. Before the end of the year, we’ll see the C-Max Energi, a plug-in hybrid that will afford greater electric-only range. The C-Max delivers more than just good fuel economy, however. Its accommodations are quite roomy, with an impressive 99.7 cubic feet of passenger volume and the added versatility of 60/40-split fold-flat rear seats and second-row in-floor storage bins. As with all new Fords of late, the C-Max can be had with a raft of high-tech goodies, such as Sync with MyFord Touch, navigation, active park assist, and a power foot-activated liftgate.

Safety

Front, side, side curtain, and driver’s knee air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; tire-pressure monitors; the SOS Post-Crash Alert System; programmable MyKey; and integrated blind-spot mirrors are standard. A rearview camera and a reverse sensing system are available.

Cocktail Chatter Logo2
What cocktails go best with all this car chatter? Automobilemag.com is here to help with weekly recipes. Remember, this is for talking about cars, not driving — always designate a driver. This week's cocktail comes from Diamond Jim Brady's in Novi, Michigan. The Pimm's Ginger is both simple and delicious: it combines equal parts of Pimm's No. 1, ginger ale, and lemon juice, shaken with ice, and served in a rocks class with a mint garnish.
2013 Ford C Max Hybrid Front Three Quarter
The 2013 Ford C-Max hybrid now has a lower EPA fuel economy estimate, following months of consumer complaints.
2013 Ford Cmax Hybrid Front Three Quarters
Ford has gotten a lot of flak lately for its new lineup of hybrid models because many owners and numerous automotive publications have alleged the vehicles do not live up to their lofty EPA fuel economy estimates. Some owners have even sued the company because of the apparently inflated estimates.
2013 Ford C Max Energi Front Left View 2
If you're keeping score at home, the price difference between the C-Max Energi and the regular Ford C-Max is exactly $4550. What does the extra money get you? A big surprise when you pop the C-Max Energi's optional power liftgate: 5.3 cubic feet of the cargo area is filled with a 7.8 kWh battery pack, charged exclusively by the plug located just beneath the A-pillar window insert. It's enough to power the C-Max, gas-free, for up to 21 miles.
