I have been looking at other options and frankly not many look as appealing as the fusion in that category. I might go look at the C-Max, but I am not so sure what to expect there.
The C-Max feels like a taller heavier Focus to drive, but the powertrain is entirely different, with a atkinson cycle 2.0 L i4 that makes less power and torque but is more efficient combined with a hybridized planetary single speed automatic transmission. It drives rather well for what it is, but its not quite as lithe as the Focus for obvious reasons.
