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 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. The 2015 Toyota Prius is still the most fuel-efficient gasoline car on the market, at 50 mpg; its iconic hatchback shape offers a spacious interior that can seat five, though the handling is nothing to write home about.
