What Car? says...

The Ford C-Max is a high-roofed, five-seat compact MPV that’s roughly the same size as a Focus, but it 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 Citroën C4 Picasso.

Engine options start with an excellent 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol available in two power outputs and a 1.5 diesel. There are also three trims to consider.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions of the C-Max, along with our recommendations for trim levels and engines.
