The Ford C-Max is not the most practical, nor the best-value, in this class but it is the most fun to driveget the best price
This is our favourite trim, although you’re going to want to add a few extras. Zetec comes with alloy wheels, air-con, heated windscreen and side mirrors, lumbar adjustment, a DAB radio, a USB input, Bluetooth and a space-saver spare wheel. You’ll want to add the 8.0in touchscreen with sat-nav and rear parking sensors, though.
Engine:1.0 EcoBoost 125
This is our favourite engine for private buyers; it’s potent enough that it doesn’t feel underpowered despite the size of the car, and it’s smooth-revving, quiet on the move and well priced.
