Plus, it didn't look so much like a mini-van on-line at Ford. I was surprised how tall it was when I actually saw it on the lot. Never showed it to the wife, and she is deadfast against getting a minivan.
I saw a c-max the other day and it looked more like a focus than I was expecting.
The huge selling point of that car is the 47mpg. I'm really curious what people get with it.
edit: just looked it up and it looks like it doesn't generally get 47 in real world driving. Although in one review it was also faster than a GTI and about the same speed to 60 as the focus ST.
