How Much Does a 2018 Ford C-MAX Cost?

The 2018 Ford C-Max Hybrid comes in SE and Titanium trim levels.

SE ($24,995) has a 60/40 fold-down rear seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, keyless entry, automatic headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped tilt-telescopic steering wheel with audio controls, 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, rearview camera, Sync voice command, Bluetooth, plus a 6-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input and a USB port.

The optional SE Comfort package brings leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, 10-way power adjustment for the front passenger seat and heated side mirrors that incorporate puddle lamps. An SE Driver Assist package has rear parking sensors, a powered tailgate and the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-in touchscreen.

Titanium ($28,150) has all the above as standard, then adds rain-sensing wipers, fog lights, ambient cabin lighting, push-button start/remote start, a self-dimming rearview mirror, HD radio and an upgraded 9-speaker Sony audio system.

The Driver Assist bundle for the Titanium trim features blind spot monitoring, self-parking system for parallel spaces, front parking sensors and a hands-free powered tailgate (a sensor detects foot movement, providing the key is also within range).

Among the other options are a fixed panoramic sunroof, door-unlocking keypads and navigation.

The C-Max has 52.6 cu ft. of cargo space behind the front seats, or 24.5 cu ft. behind the second row. That first figure is good; the second figure is less impressive. Handy features include underfloor storage compartments and a 110-volt power outlet.
