2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid SEL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

This car is amazing! I tried the Prius and never looked back. The fit and finish is like like a German car, and the leather seats are comfortable. What's outstanding is the cab forward visibility. You can see so much of the road and countryside while you are touring. Ride is very good for 17" tires, and handling is very tight. OK, the navigation and controls take time to learn, but work great once you understand, so don't trust Consumer Reports. THIS IS A BLAST TO DRIVE. We average 38 mpg city and country. It's hard to test in LA, because if you start up slowly, people get on your tail. I had to cut across some traffic once, and floored it at the stop light, the torque was like hyperspace.

Favorite Features

Sony sound system is very good. Cab quietness. Fuel efficiency. Seat comfort. Visibilty. Build quality. Handling. Unique design. The self parking system will blow your mind. It hunts for a space, then parallel parks you even in tight spaces on hills. Rear camera great feature. Size of cabin and room over all hybrids.

Suggested Improvements

I think they should have a switch that keeps the electric motor on longer, so you don't have to start so slowly. Blind spot should be standard, not available yet.
