The Ford C-Max is a high-roofed, five-seat compact MPV that’s roughly the same size as a Focus, but offers more seating flexibility and a bit more storage space and practicality in general. It competes with rivals such as the Volkswagen Golf SV and the Citroen C4 Picasso.
Engine options start with a 1.6 petrol. There is an excellent 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.5 diesel, both of which are available in two power outputs, and a 2.0-litre diesel as the range-topper.
Good visibility and higher-set seats are some of the main reasons buyers opt for these MPV-style hatchbacks, and the C-Max will satisfy in that respect.
