The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Compared to the Toyota Prius, the 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi provide more driving enjoyment as well as a more comfortable, stylish interior -- even if they don't quite measure up in real-world fuel efficiency. The 2014 VW Passat gains a good new four-cylinder, while it keeps its grip on TDI economy, excellent interior room, and top-notch crash-test scores.
