Ford C-Max
Ford C-Max
The Ford C-Max, which made its U.S. debut at the Detroit Auto Show, is a mini-minivan. It's a competitor to the Mazda5.

The C-Max has a couple of neat tricks up its sleeve. For one, a center seat in the second row folds away inside one of the other seats, creating a six-seat van with a passageway to the third row.

Second, the C-Max has an available power tailgate door that can be operated by waving a foot under the rear bumper. That way, someone carrying bags or, perhaps, a baby in both hands can open the tailgate hands-free.

Ford also announced it will bring out Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid versions of the C-Max later
