TCC’s Bottom Line
With their stylish interiors and perky driving feel, the 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi are somewhat sportier alternatives to the Toyota Prius lineup. With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise. The 2015 Toyota Prius V brings a fresh face and the same outstanding fuel economy that the Prius is known for, all in a more family-friendly shape.
