By Emily Eppley | June 19th, 2017

When you need a spacious hatchback sedan but seek to decrease your carbon footprint, look to the 2017 Ford C-Max to meet your goals. This model provides a plush, yet roomy cabin that has plenty of room behind the second row and gives you a plug-in option for better fuel efficiency. Take a look at this incredible vehicle and discover your reason to love it too!

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine with that’s paired to a continuous variable transmission that earns 141 horsepower. That number bumps up to 188 horsepower when you combine it with the two electric motor/generators that charge as you decelerate, reclaiming an estimated 94 percent of energy and sending it back to the lithium ion battery for future use. Not only does this car have the best-in-class horsepower, but also it has well-balanced suspension and steering that make this a fun, agile experience for both driver and passenger.

Even with the capacious battery pack in the trunk, the C-Max has exceptional cargo space to fit your active lifestyle. Thanks to the high-roofed hatchback, you get more space and better visibility. In the driver’s seat, you’ll discover a gauge cluster with two multi-information displays that can be customized to show driving efficiency with eco-leaves that appear when you’re driving consciously, or power flow,  fuel economy, and more. The high-resolution 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes with the intuitive Sync 3, a pair of USB ports for charging your preferred devices, backup sensors, and a power-operated liftgate to make every trip easier.

Ford takes your safety seriously, which is why the C-Max has seven standard airbags to give you confidence on the road. It also comes with optional SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link trial subscription that provides you with turn-by-turn directions and customizable favorites to star on your map. There’s even available Active Park Assist to take the stress out of parallel parking when you’re out on the town.

Come in to test drive the 2017 Ford C-Max today and discover your reason to love it too!
