Ford says about 20% more room in the C-Max. It feels much larger with the seats down than the hatchback. The C-Max is a foot taller than the Focus hatch and has seats that fold down much easier. In Europe, you can get a C-Max where the back seats have 60/40 sliding adjustment and removal.
In the real world, the C-Max has about a third more room than the hatchback with seats folded. I filled our hatchback with 25 bags of mulch last summer, which was enough to make a guy with a Flex impressed. Hopefully I can get 32-33 in the C-Max next summer (I hope I don't need that much mulch).
