New C-Max

Recommended Posts

I just replaced our 4x4 Ford Expedition with a 2017 C-Max.  It's something like 25% of the size of the original car, but the MPGs are just awesome.

American C-Max's are only available as hybrids, with a 105 KW 2 liter Atkinson-cycle combined with a 35 KW electric motor. 

How well does the C-Max do in snow?  Yes, I know it's not the same car, the hybrid is probably quite a bit heavier but tires and ground clearance should be the same.

Some pictures.  I figure it will look a strange to you all with the small American plates on it as your big plates look to me.

 

Are the two lights on the hatch fog lights?  They just seem kind of randomly placed and we don't have rear fog lights here.

 

LED lights under the headlights are pretty cool, i just wish it had fog lights and the navigation radio

The pics seem to be of earlier Cmax. The small grill just under the bonnet has now been removed and a smiley face rad grill included. Haven't sussed how to include a pic yet or would includ a pic of mine.

Yes sorry thanks for that, must be an age thing!  But I have just purchased a 2016 Cmax and found the front view similar to the pics to be earlier than 2015. Later models all seem to have just the smiley😊 face grill

Yes Pragmatix, I agree that this is a 17reg Cmax but the point I am trying to make is, it looks to ME that the hybrid seems to be using the pre 16 reg shape . My Cmax is a 16 reg and most post 16/17/18 seem to have a different front and rear. See photo of my front ....
