What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Handling is sharp and diesels are punchy

Against It only has five seats and the ones in the rear are fiddly and awkward to remove

Verdict It's a practical five-seat car with a sparkling drive

Go for… 2.0 TDCi Zetec

Avoid… 1.6 petrol

Ford Focus C-MAX MPV
  • 1. Watch for misfires on 2.0 diesels and 1.8 petrols - often caused by a faulty ECU
  • 2. There are only five seats, so it isn't as versatile as the best compact MPVs
  • 3. There was a recall to fix problems with the electronic parking brake, so check the necessary work has been done
  • 4. A second recall concerned the wiper motor, so check that the work has been done
  • 5. The boot is plenty big enough for a family's luggage
