If you want to do your part to help the environment, but don’t want to cut corners on style and comfort, then the choice is easy. The 2016 Ford C-MAX offers exemplary eco options, along with a host of quality features all wrapped in a beautiful package. Consider a used model for your next hybrid car.
The 2016 C-MAX Hybrid comes with a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine, which works together with a 35-kW electric motor. Together, the two crank out 188 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Opt for the electric C-MAX Energi and you’ll be treated to a 19-mile electric range. The hybrid has a wow-worthy EPA rating of 42 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, with the equally noteworthy Energi getting 40 mpg city/36 mpg highway.
In addition to its near luxury status interior with high-quality materials, the C-MAX also comes with some pretty cool features. With MyFord Mobile, you can monitor your car’s charging status. The app even shows you a map of nearby charging stations, which can eliminate the stress of longer car rides. KBB.com touts the vehicle’s active grille shutters, which close when you’re driving at higher speeds. This makes the car more aerodynamic, which reduces drag and improves fuel economy.
