The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Cube is boxy alright, but in a way that prioritizes style and fashion, not outright practicality. The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid is the first head-to-head challenger for the Toyota Prius since that car grabbed the green mantle a decade ago--and in many ways, the Ford's a better daily driver.
