What used Ford Grand C-Max MPV will I get for my budget?
Think about £5500 for a good 2011 Grand C-Max, with an average mileage for the year and a full history, bought from an independent dealer. Spend between £6000 and £8000 and you should see a good 2012 or 2013 car bought from a trader, while £8000 to £10,000 will net you a 2014 or 2015 model with an average mileage. Pay around £10,000 for a 2016 model, and between £10,000 and £12,000 for a 2017 car.
How much does it cost to run a Ford Grand C-Max MPV?
The 1.0 Ecoboost engines both have the same claimed fuel consumption figures at 54.3mpg and the same CO2 emissions of 119g/km. The one to pick for frugality is the 1.5 TDCi 120 diesel, with claimed figures of 64.2mpg and 113g/km. Annual car tax rates for cars registered before the April 2017 changes are fairly similar, and exactly the same for those registered after, all being taxed at the flat rate.
Insurance groups range from 13 to 26 for the highly specced versions of the 2.0 TDCi diesel models. Servicing on the Grand C-Max isn’t too costly, and parts will be cheap to buy if something does go wrong. Cars over three years of age will qualify for Ford’s Motorcraft servicing regime, under which an annual service at a Ford dealer will cost £149. You'll pay even less at an independent Ford specialist.
