Ford C-Max Among Best Used Vehicles Between $10K To $15K

The Ford C-Max has earned its fair share of praise from Consumer Reports over the years, making its Best Used Cars and SUVs for $15,000-$20,000 and Best Used Cars for Teens Under $20,000 lists, as well as landing on Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best Used Hybrids and Electric Cars Under $15,000 rankings. Now, the Ford C-Max has yet another accolade to add to its long list of them after Consumer Reports named it as one of the best used vehicles that cost between $10,000 and $15,000.

In a world where used car bargains are hard to come by, this list is particularly interesting because it proves that there are still some good deals out there. While some used vehicles sell for more than used ones in this day and age due to the laws of supply and demand, the Ford C-Max represents a rare bargain that has already depreciated considerably, and yet, it’s still reliable, efficient, equipped with modern tech and safety features, and has also earned high ratings from both Consumer Reports and its members.

The Ford C-Max made the cut on this particular list in the $10,000-$15,000 category for the 2014-2016 model years, specifically, along with the Toyota Prius C. Consumer Reports notes that the C-Max earned this spot because it’s “practical and nicely finished,” with excellent real-world combined fuel economy of 37 miles-per-gallon during the consumer organization’s testing. The Prius C joined it at the top of the list thanks to its 43 mph combined fuel economy and affordable price tag, too.

Those two vehicles were joined in the small car segment by a number of other “good choices,” including the Honda Fit, Mazda3, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Prius, and Toyota Prius V.
