The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the Ford C-MAX Hybrid a Top Safety Pick for second year in a row. IIHS had the 2014 Ford C-MAX Hybrid undergo multiple crash tests – leading to a “good” rating in side crash, roof strength, restraint and seating evaluations.

Steve Kenner, global director, Ford Automotive Safety Office said the carmaker is proud that the C-MAX Hybrid has achieved a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS. Standard safety equipment on the C-MAX Hybrid includes MyKey, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, driver and passenger airbags and front seat-mounted side-impact airbags.

Add to that list a safety canopy system, SOS Post Crash Alert System and a tire pressure monitoring system. The C-MAX Hybrid comes with available driver-assist features like a rearview camera, active park assist, forward sensing system and reverse sensing system as well as rain-sensing wipers.

The 2014 Ford C-MAX also boasts of having the best-in-class passenger volume with 99.7 cubic feet as well as class-exclusive features like SmartGauge with EcoGuide, integrated blind spot mirrors and Active Grille Shutters.

Other class-exclusive features include dual-zone automatic temperature control and Easy Fuel capless fuel filler as well as leather-trimmed seats and a hands-free liftgate.
