It is a more upright seating position than the Focus, but not quite a CUV. It also has less of a cockpit feel than most of the newer Ford vehicles.

As I have become more used to car, I have been better at keeping the C-Max in EV mode. I am looking forward to the car recognizing my usual destinations so it will go into EV+ mode, which allows you to use more battery close to home or frequent destinations. The hybrid driving screens are one of the best features of the C-Max. I wish our Focus had at least a full color LCD between the tachometer and speedometer.

My mileage keeps climbing. I have a 20 mile commute that includes both service street and highway. On cruise control, at 72 mph, my commute has been averaging the EPA tested 47 MPG. Hopefully I can get 500 miles a tank.



That's the ice storm color, which looks like they took frosted glass and made it slightly more pale. I wonder why they did that vs keeping Frosted Glass like it is still on the 2013 Escape.
