2016 Ford C-Max vs 2016 Toyota Prius
When you think of the hybrid vehicle segment, the Toyota Prius is probably the first vehicle that comes to mind. After all, the Prius has been the gold standard in the hybrid category for almost 20 years now. However, we aren’t convinced that the Prius is actually the best hybrid vehicle for the money. Ford’s C-Max model has been consistently getting better each and every year, and it has reached a point where it is as good or better than the Prius.
