If having plenty of space is important to you, you’ll want to look closer at Ford’s hybrid option.  With more front and second row head room in the C-Max than the Prius, drivers and passengers won’t feel like they’re being squished from above.  You can also stretch your legs out with more leg room in the 2013 Ford model.
