For The Ford S-Max is more fun to drive than most other MPVs, yet it's also refined. The cabin is roomy and versatile, while all versions are well equipped.
Against The rearmost two seats aren't comfy for adults and they're fiddly to fold. Prices for higher-spec models are rather dear.
The Ford S-Max is an MPV that requires little compromise. Brilliant to drive, practical and stylish inside and out.

The S-Max's appeal lies in the fact that it's a big, practical MPV that feels more like a sporty hatchback when you're behind the wheel. It's great fun to drive, yet also as refined and comfy as a family car should be.
The 2.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine is exceptionally strong and smooth, but most buyers will go for one of the more frugal diesel engines, which are impressively quiet and flexible.
The S-Max costs more than rivals like the Peugeot 5008, but it’s bigger than them and all versions are very well equipped. On the other hand, it costs a lot less than Ford’s other big MPV, the Galaxy, with which it shares most parts under the skin. A higher roof and slightly raised rearmost seats make the Galaxy the more practical of the pair, however, and it also comes with more standard kit.

Out of all the models on offer, the Ford S-Max 2.0 TDCi 140 Zetec is the best. The engine provides strong, smooth power and reasonable running costs, while Zetec trim gives you all the kit you need at a reasonable price.
