We discovered a couple of ergonomic issues that bothered us a little. First, the trunk release is hidden behind the gear shift and until you find it and get accustomed to its location you’ll be confounded. Also, the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid’s steering wheel has a ton of buttons; too many in fact. It’s distracting to have two directional pads, two paddles on opposite sides (one to engage cruise control and one to set voice activation) then the cruise settings, volume and stereo settings, as well as phone controls.
