If there’s one thing you don’t want to skimp on when buying a used vehicle, it’s safety features. That’s why you should consider a used 2014 Ford C-MAX Hybrid for your next family car.
For the second year in a row, the 2014 Ford C-MAX Hybrid has been given the prestigious title of Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute forHighway Safety (IIHS). After numerous crash tests, it received a “good” rating in roof strength, side crash, restraint, and seating evaluations (with “good” being the top possible score).
Global director of Ford Automotive Safety Office Steve Kenner says, “Ford takes the safety of our customers very seriously.” Looking at the long list of top of the line safety features in the 2014 C-MAX, it’s hard to disagree. Drivers will be familiar with driver-assist features like rain-sensing wipers, active park assist, a rearview camera, and both forward and reverse sensing systems.
Standard safety equipment in this Hybrid includes SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, and MyKey®. You and your loved ones will feel safe with front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, driver and passenger airbags, and a safety canopy system.
Outside of its long list of safety features, the C-MAX also has dual-zone automatic temperature control, SmartGauge® with EcoGuide, and Easy Fuel® capless fuel filler. It also boasts a best-in-class passenger volume of 99.7 cubic feet.
Take a C-MAX for a test drive at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington and experience some of the safety features for yourself. You can also browse our full pre-owned hybrid inventory online.
