Full-size cars - 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid
Gas mileage (city/highway; combined mpg): 47/47; 47
Efficiency-cost rating: 1.81
While there are no affordably priced full-size hybrid sedans, there are now reasonably priced hatchbacks larger than the Prius, including Toyota’s own Prius v. However, this is the one category out of three where the Prius model doesn’t rule. Thanks to its higher mileage and lower price, the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid leads. Like the Fusion Hybrid, the C-Max Hybrid has accrued a disproportionate number of complaints about its true mileage performance. If this concerns you, the Prius v has a lower, but still respectable, 1.53 efficiency-cost rating.
