Today we will see how two very compact and quite affordable as well as popular models of the new generation that are placed in the sustainable market segment will be fighting with each other in order to show us which one of them truly deserves to be called the best green car of the upcoming year. Let’s see what new 2013 year model of Ford C-Max Hybrid has to offer in the fight with very vastly known 2013 year Toyota Prius C.

The prices of these two models are quite reasonable and can be attributed to the low-priced segment of the automotive market. New Ford model will cost its new owner about $23,000, while new Toyota will be a little cheaper with the price of about $18,000. On the engine side the real fun begins. new Ford got the 2.0-Liter I4 engine with 16 valves that give out about 188-horsepower. This is a perfect result, as we compare that new Prius has at its disposition just 1.5-Liter I4 engine with 16 valves that gives out 99-horsepower. So we see that additional volume gives more power in quite a considerable manner. In terms of fuel economy both models are quite the same.
