Ranked as the #7 Wagon by U.S. News & World Report, the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi is one of the best plug-in hybrids on the market. Its long body style makes it more practical for families and people with dogs, and it can travel for up to 19 miles on electricity alone. For urban dwellers, this means that you will hardly ever have to hit the gas station!
This five-passenger model operates with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder conventional engine coupled with a 7.6-kWh lithium-ion battery-fed motor. Using a 240-volt outlet, the C-Max Energi can be fully recharged in as little as 2.5 hours. It even has an exceptional fuel economy set at 39 mpg combined. According to Edmunds, this nifty ride also earned a solid 5-star rating for side-impact protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The top-of-the-line Titanium trim level includes foglamps, chrome exterior accents, and handy rain-sensing wipers. The cabin features heated, leather seats and ambient lighting to set a comfortable mood. You can even listen to HD radio through the nine-speaker stereo system.
