Car Security Awards 2008 - Large MPV
Price from £17,800
This is the second year the S-Max has won in this category. Overall security provision is good, although this is the lowest-scoring winner of any car in this year's awards.
There's a decent alarm, with a tilt sensor fitted to every model in the range, and the door locks are exceedingly strong. However, the steering column lock could be a little better.
2nd: Ford Galaxy (all except Edge)
Price from £19,800
The Galaxy is almost identical to the S-Max, although Edge models don't get an alarm, so it moves into second spot behind its brother.
3rd: Chrysler Grand Voyager
Price from £20,005
Chrysler's new Grand Voyager bumps the Renault Espace out of third place, with extras like a locking glovebox. The alarm could do with a tilt sensor, though.
