The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
6.6
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. The 2015 Mazda 5 has good road manners and clean styling, but its flexibility is undercut by poor safety ratings.
