I recently had the chance to test the all-new 2013 Ford C-MAX hybrid, and I have to say I really liked it. It drove well. It stores a lot of stuff. It's comfortable. And for a wagony-crossovery-typey vehicle, it gets decent fuel economy. My primary complaint, however, is that the EPA estimated 47 mpg is kind of a long shot during a Chicago winter. I was only averaging 30 mpg in combined driving, and I was actually trying to be good. So, while that's still pretty good for a large-ish car, it's not quite what Ford advertises. And, lest you think it's just me, I do have a friend who mentioned on my Facebook page, that she owns the car and is getting considerably less than even that. Ouch.
Below is more of an up-close look at the C-MAX during the time that I spent with it at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
