The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.3
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid and Energi plug-in hybrid are comfortable and spacious, but their fuel economy is lower than virtually all hybrid competitors. The 2018 Toyota Prius wins our minds with its fuel-efficiency and low running costs. Our hearts are a different story.
