Ford walked away with three Autobytel awards for 2013. First was the new Ford C-Max Hybrid taking home the 2013 Autobytel Alternative Fuel Car of the Year award. The editorial staff praised the C-Max Hybrid’s 47 MPG in city, highway, and combined cycles, amount of space, and very unique styling. Second was the new Ford Fusion midsize sedan which took home both the 2013 Autobytel Sedan of the Year and Autobytel Car of the Year. The staff praised Fusion’s European inspired design and handling, along with the range of efficient engines from two EcoBoost four-cylinder engines to a plug-in hybrid model. Autobytel’s Editor-in-Chief Michelle Naranjo presents the award to Ford’s Seema Bardwaj during the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
