TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi are still pleasant all-rounders among hybrids, but they face much tougher competition this year from the Prius lineup. The 2017 Toyota Prius V is the largest Prius model offered, though it's now also one of the oldest. The 2017 Toyota Prius closes the gap between "driving a hybrid" and "driving a normal car," even though it still looks like nothing else on the road.
