When the best-selling cars at your San Diego Ford dealership are crossovers, the pint-sized 2017 Ford C-MAX is a big statement. This pint-sized people hauler at Kearny Pearson Ford has surprising passenger and cargo room, and amazing fuel economy.
2017 Ford C-MAX Details
The 2017 Ford C-MAX offers two distinct powertrains. Both versions are underpinned by a 2.0 liter inline four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine paired to electric motors; taken together they deliver 188 net horsepower.
The difference is that the 2017 Ford C-MAX Energi is a plug-in hybrid with a significant electric-only range. If most of your driving is local, you can go days — perhaps even weeks — at a time without laying eyes on a gas pump.
New in 2017
New Design: The front end has a bit of a facelift.
Trim Levels: The Energi plug-in hybrid now has the same trim levels (SE and Titanium) as its conventional hybrid sibling.
More Fuel Economy: The powertrain is now tuned for an EPA estimated 42 MPG city / 38 MPG highway on the hybrid, or 104 MPG city / 87 MPG highway on the plug-in. It's also worth mention that the Ford C-MAX Energi has a 20-mile all-electric range.
2017 Ford C-MAX Safety and Special Features
The Ford C-MAX, like all new Ford cars, offers best-in-class amenities to drivers. The small size belies the ample space for all five occupants, while the 60/40 split rear seats give easy access to a maximum 52.6 cubic feet of storage.
Other great features include locking in-floor storage for small items, hands-free/foot-activated liftgate, and a feature in the Ford SYNC3 infotainment system that coaches you to improve your driving for even better fuel economy.
Buying a 2017 Ford C-MAX
While a certain Japanese rival seems to get all the attention when it comes to hybrid cars, the Ford Motor Company establishes itself as a force to be reckoned with thanks to a green car fleet that includes the likes of the 2017 Ford C-MAX, Ford Fusion Energi, and Ford Focus Electric.
