PICK YOUR CHOICE, CHOOSE A PREFERENCE, SELECT THE FAVORITE

Far and away Toyota’s Prius v has the most cargo space, but the nameplate’s reputation for quality cannot be ignored. The Ford C-Max is the most powerful and engaging in this three-car comparison and on paper at least it’s narrowly the most efficient, important attributes to be certain. Finally, the Subaru XV Crosstrek is the most capable in inclement weather and off road. Each of these fuel-saving vehicles has its pluses and minuses; now it’s up to Kelli to find the right one for her. We’ve done as much as we can, our work here is done… for this week at least.

    Sounds to me like she’d rather go for a regular Prius or even prius c, not the v. I’d recommend the Jetta Hybrid before the prius v. I know the Civic Hybrid doesn’t really make a good business case for itself, but it’s a lot cheaper than these and may be all the car she needs.

  • Just wondering

    I have a 2013 C-Max and love it. I continue to be amazed that Ford rarely ever mentions the C-Max in any kind of advertising. Why is Ford not putting the C-Max in front of the public to better sell the car?

    The c-max is a scam. It doesn’t get anywhere near the mpg that is advertised in the real world (which has been proven by multiple magazines on multiple occasions).
