Awards

Ford has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2017 C-Max Energi has earned a coveted 5-star side crash rating from the NHTSA1.

Features

A match made in heaven: warm in one zone, cool in another, giving each occupant control over their own climatic comfort. On the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi2, multi-zone climate control comes standard... but not on the 2017 Nissan LEAF.
Move forward, back, up, or down with the touch of a button, using the Power Adjustable Seats that come standard on the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi2. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2017 Nissan LEAF, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat.
A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi3. Want it on the 2017 Nissan LEAF4? You'll have to pay extra.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi3, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2017 Nissan LEAF4, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
The 2017 Ford C-Max Energi's2 optional sunroof lets the light in on even the gloomiest day. Sadly, the 2017 Nissan LEAF doesn't come with a sunroof, no matter how nicely you ask for one.
