Ford enthusiasts will instantly recognize the familiar face of the C-MAX. Featuring signature elements of Ford’s Kinetic Design – long flowing headlights and a large lower trapezoidal grille – the C-MAX conjures up Ford’s classic athletic vibe. For 2017, the C-MAX Energi SE gets standard Ebony with chrome-surround grille and 17-inch painted bright silver-finish alloy wheels. A sculpted hood kicks up at the rear edges, adding an extra touch of sportiness, and a steeply angled windshield continues with one sweeping curve that ends with a strong-rising C-pillar round out the front design. The shape is not only striking, but also plays a major role in the C-Max’s aerodynamic drag coefficient of just 0.30.


Designed for urban maneuverability, the Ford C-MAX Energi is both versatile and flexible, with seating for five that includes a split, fold-flat second row. The three individual 40/20/40 seats can slide, fold or be removed completely. It also provides 42.8 cubic feet of space behind the first row and an extra 19.2 cubic feet behind the second row. EV-specific features include a MyFord Touch telematics system that dispenses specific e-driving information and keeps you in control over your ride with voice-activated SYNC technology. C-MAX even features a cabin air filter to help prevent pollen from entering the vehicle, so you can breathe as free and clear as the 405 during carmageddon.

Ford C-Max powertrain


Switching seamlessly between its 88kW electric traction motor and 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 gasoline engine, the Ford C-MAX Energi power-split hybrid architecture is powered by a state-of-the-art, lithium-ion battery. All-electric mode works at speeds of up to 85 mph, since the C-MAX engages its engine only as needed to power the battery and to enhance performance.The C-MAX Energi offers 188 combined horsepower. Transfer that power and 129 lb.-ft. of torque to the road and you’re in for an invigorating drive.
