For The Ford Grand C-Max is one of the best handling cars in its class, yet the ride isn’t overly firm. Running costs are low, the seats are easy to fold and sliding rear doors make it easy to get kids in and out.
Against Some rivals are roomier, and the central seat in the middle row is narrow, so it’s only really suitable for short journeys. There’s also some wind noise at motorway speeds.
What Car? says
The Ford Grand C-Max is well equipped, good to drive and pretty cheap to run. Some people will love the seating layout, but it won’t suit everyone.

The first thing buyers have to decide is whether they want the regular five-seat Ford C-Max or the more expensive, but more family-friendly, seven-seat Ford Grand C-Max.
Of the engines we've tried in the Grand C-Max, our favourite is the 113bhp 1.6-litre diesel. It has all the strength you need, even when you're loaded up with passengers and luggage. It's so good, it renders the stronger 2.0-litre diesels a little redundant.
Entry-level Zetec cars come with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, rear parking sensors and stability control. Meanwhile the pricier Titanium spec gets a premium Sony stereo, automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control, climate control and keyless start. Titanium X adds a powered driver's seat.
