To learn all about these great features on the C-Max, keep reading our 2016 Ford C-Max review!
The Ford C-Max comes in two models: Hybrid and Energi. Looking first at the C-Max Hybrid, this year's model carries over its two trim levels: SE and SEL. The C-Max Hybrid SE trim comes standard with automatic headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker sound system. New for 2016 is the addition of Ford's all-new Sync 3 infotainment interface that now includes an 8-inch touchscreen, pinch-to-touch capability and improved voice recognition software.
The top-level SEL trim adds keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a navigation system, ambient interior lighting, a power liftgate, rear parking sensors, automatic wipers and foglights. Other optional equipment on the 2016 Ford C-Max in Mesquite includes a rearview camera, a 9-speaker Sony sound system, automatic parallel parking and front parking sensors. The 2016 C-Max Energi model gets similar equipment to the C-Max Hybrid, though it is only available on one trim level.
Under the hood, the 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid near Dallas is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine that is paired with a lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor. This powertrain generates 188 horsepower and works with a very efficient continuously variable transmission. As with its standard features, the C-Max Energi uses a similar powertrain as its hybrid cousin, though the plug-in model does get a considerably larger battery pack that allows it to go farther on electric power.
