If you need a hybrid vehicle that delivers the best in efficiency, look no further than a used 2014 Ford C-MAX Energi SEL.
A 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and a 35-kW electric motor work in tandem to produce 188 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. Through their combined efforts, you can expect a fuel economy of 44 mpg in the city, while highway driving yields an impressive 41 mpg.
Let’s not forget about the EV mode. The 2014 model also grants you a 19-mile electric range, which is more than sufficient for running errands across town or making short commutes.
But the C-MAX’s efficiency isn’t limited to what’s under the hood. According to KBB.com, this car’s active grill shutters will close at higher driving speeds directing air around and over the front of the vehicle. This reduces drag, which in turn, cuts down on gas guzzling.
If you want to avoid using fuel as much as possible, check the MyFord Mobile app to find out where the nearest plug-in station is. This handy feature also allows you to remotely monitor your battery level and schedule charging times from your smartphone.
