2012 Ford C-Max
Ford's miniature minivan is the size of a compact sedan, with seven seats.
Like Chrysler, Ford is in the process of reinventing itself. Most of its recent new products boast a hefty European influence, and the C-Max people-mover is no exception. This is a seven-passenger mini-minivan — at just 178 inches long, it's roughly the size of a compact sedan — that offers a standard six-speed automatic and an available hands-free liftgate. As a bonus, the C-Max shares a platform with the excellent 2012 Ford Focus, so it should be more entertaining than the average kid-wagon.
