What's New for the 2018 Ford C-MAX?

The 2018 Ford C-MAX is a hybrid hatchback that's perfect for the buyer looking for a smart, practical choice. However, Ford has decided to say goodbye to the line by ending production in 2018, so if you've been considering this car, now is the time to act! Because of this recent news, changes to the model for 2018 have been minimal, but there has been one update worth mentioning. Ford has streamlined the C-MAX buying options for this year by removing the plug-in edition, the C-MAX Energi.
