We see and drive a C-Max for the first time

I live in Utah.  The C-Max just isn’t in the state yet.  My wife and I are anxious to see them.  We’re visiting family in Martinez and a search of C-Max inventory near Martinez listed many of them nearby.  Today we visited Walnut Creek Ford – a dealer that was EV certified (we even quickly glanced at the new Focus EV).

We had never seen a C-Max before and my wife was excited to check it out too.  This dealer just received two vehicles the day before.  They had a well-equipped SEL with “Blue Candy” exterior.  Opening the door, we noticed that the console was huge.  It swept down from the dashboard to the back of the front seats.  My wife was quite disappointed with the space consumed by the console.  Unlike the large console in the Honda CR-V, there wasn’t a compartment within it large enough to store her purse.  We were impressed with the power as she drove onto the on-ramp of a divided highway near the dealership though.  The salesman knew a lot about the C-Max.  He discussed the features overall and showed how Sync allowed one to change the cabin temperature.
