The C-Max Energi is very comfortable and very quiet. I love the plug in ability, I drive mostly around town so I average 75 miles a gallon. This is because I have a very short commute and usually go under 20 miles a day so I can go the whole day on electric. If it was only a Hybrid and only got 40 miles per gallon I would still love the car. It seems like a luxury car that gets very good fuel mileage. The car has a lot of windows and that is great except it heats up really fast in the sun.
