The C-MAX is a practical, well-built and spacious five-seat vehicle from Ford. This stylish MPV is also good to drive and possesses cost-effective engines, and comes in Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X trim levels.
This smoothly-contoured family car features a number of stylish elements, including 16-inch alloy wheels. A range of body-coloured fixtures include door handles and door mirrors. The latter are power-operated and heated and are fitted with integrated indicator lights. Further illumination includes courtesy-delay headlights and front fog lamps.
A spacious cabin offers plenty of head and legroom in both compartments, and the driver can get to grips with a leather-trimmed three-spoke steering wheel and gearshift knob. The former offers rake-and-reach-adjustability and, in conjunction with an adjustable driver’s seat (which also offers adjustable lumbar support), enables the driver to find the optimal position. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, electric front windows (one-touch on the driver’s side), air conditioning and front and rear 12-volt power points.
A range of smart stowage spaces includes a large illuminated glovebox, centre-console storage, well-proportioned door bins, and two overhead compartments. Luggage capacity begins at 432 litres with all seats up, rising to 627 litres (five seats up), and the boot features an auxiliary power point.
A 1.0-litre 99bhp (or 123bhp) petrol engine delivers up to 55.4mpg and a 117g/km CO2 figure. Alternatively, a 1.5-litre 118bhp diesel unit returns as much as 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 105g/km. Both options are available with entry-level Zetec grades. Each is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and feature Auto Start-Stop and Ford Easy Fuel capless system. Six-speed automatic transmission is available as an option.
The C-MAX comes with a six-speaker sound system (including DAB radio, an AM/FM radio and a CD player) and Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Also included as standard are a 4.2-inch colour display, Ford SYNC (including Voice Control, Emergency Assistance and AppLink) and MyKey functionality.
The vehicle has been certified by Euro NCAP with a five-star rating. Safety features include Anti-lock Braking System, Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist, Emergency Brake Warning, ISOFIX child-seat attachments and multiple airbags.
Helping to maintain the vehicle’s security is remote central locking and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm.
