If you want a 2017 with the auto hatch I'm sure your dealer will find one for you and have it shipped in. I took a hit (financially) when I turned in my 2015 early to get a new lease on a 2016, but the differences between model years (regen any time you let off the gas vs. only when braking and Android auto are the biggies) were too significant to pass up! Not sure about new stuff on the 2017 though...
Why do you think you don't have Regen when you let off the accelerator on 2015 CMAX? As far as I know all CMAX's charge the HVB when you let off the accelerator. I know my 2013 does.
