Good road manners, spacious cabin and fine build quality, neat facelift
Not really that much trim choice
What is it?
Basically, the Ford C-MAX a big Focus. The C-Max is Ford’s compact MPV, so it only has five seats, but it’s just the thing if you’re after more space but the same great driving experience and plush cabin as you get in the Focus.
Need more than a couple of extra seats? No problem. The Grand C-Max is on hand with space for seven and sliding rear doors for easier access. Trim levels are perhaps a bit limited (Zetec, Titanium, or ‘Titanium extra’), but that’s not always a bad thing.
And now, the facelifted C-Max is here, gaining Ford’s Aston Martin-style grille, some refreshed diesel engines and other tweaks to try and make it as appealing as an S-Max.
