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.
I think the C-Max looks great - it is high-time for a spacious car that is not huge. I wish it had a Turbo-Diesel engine instead of the hybrid setup, though. And, Ford's prices are mad these days...they must bake in the inevitable rebates from the start.
There is no way that it is as quick as an ST or GTI. It's probably a 9-10sec car to 60mph.
