2014 C-MAX Hybrid Named IIHS Top Safety Pick

The 2014 Ford C-MAX Hybrid has earned the title of Top Safety Pick, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This marks the second consecutive year that the C-Max Hybrid has earned Top Safety Pick honors.

“Ford takes the safety of our customers very seriously,” said Steve Kenner, global director, Ford Automotive Safety Office. “We are proud C-MAX Hybrid has achieved a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.”

Given that almost nothing has changed from the Top Safety Pick-awarded 2013 model, the 2014 C-MAX Hybrid posted the same exact performance in IIHS’ battery of crashworthiness tests. It posted an “acceptable” score in the small overlap front test; and scores of “good” in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats.
