Ford's new Grand C-Max is a comfortable and spacious seven-seat model that does not compromise on pleasurable driveability. The carmaker has successfully translated the motoring experience from its smaller models into the MPV for a finish with great appeal to the modern family motorist.
The Grand C-Max shares the same aerodynamic body shape of its five-seat sibling, extending the platform and raising the roofline to accommodate greater interior space. The model's aesthetic is unmistakably Ford, featuring the distinctive gaping front grille that has become a characteristic addition on many new models. Fluid movement even when stationary is achieved by sweeping headlights and folds in the body work, and alloy wheels alongside front fog lights are welcome functional additions.
The cavernous and comfortable cabin is a key draw of the Grand C-Max, with practicality at the core of its design. Alongside seven seats offering superb head and leg room, Ford has included a 'walk through' feature whereby the middle seat of the second row can be folded away for access to the back row. This alongside a large sliding side door makes manoeuvring in and out of the Grand C-Max an easy task.
Advanced equipment can be found throughout the Grand C-Max to keep all occupied. From the driver's seat, you have universal control over each electric window, and will find key journey details presented via the trip computer. Rear parking sensors ensure safe reversing manoeuvres, and the Ford SYNC system can be controlled by voice command alone to ensure concentration remains on the road. USB connectivity joins DAB radio and an auxiliary power socket as key infotainment kit.
A choice of refined engines are offered by Ford, from clean 1.0-litre EcoBoost units up to hard-working 2.0-litre diesel options. The EcoBoost choices are available with either 99bhp or 123bhp power output, achieving 54.3mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km. The diesel engines bring power to the range - up to 138bhp – while remaining responsive.
The 2.0-litre TDCi gives 55.4mpg combined while emitting just 139g/km. Ford's Intelligent Protection System leads the model's safety credentials, combining numerous advanced technologies. Within the ultra-high strength steel safety shell, you will find Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and multiple strategically placed airbags.
