Engines

2.0 TDCi 240 Auto
2.0 TDCi 190
2.0 TDCi 210 Powershift
Donโ€™t be tempted by the impressive numbers of this engine. Youโ€™ll get just as much enjoyment out of the 148bhp diesel, and itโ€™ll cost you much less to buy and run. Available only with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
2.0 TDCi 180
A strong and fuel-efficient choice, but itโ€™s still hard to recommend because the 150 version is cheaper and not a great deal slower. This engine is available with either a manual or an automatic gearbox.
2.0 TDCi 150
The pick of the engine range because it combines adequate performance with impressive refinement and reasonable running costs. In fact, itโ€™s no less efficient the lower-powered version. Available with either a manual or an automatic gearbox.
2.0 TDCi
This is one of the most economical engines in the S-Max range. Even when itโ€™s just you on board, though, you frequently have to press the accelerator to the floor just to keep up with traffic. Available only with a six-speed manual gearbox.
2.0 EcoBoost Auto
We have yet to drive this version of the S-Max, but it doesnโ€™t make much sense on paper because it costs too much to buy and is (officially) the least economical model in the range. Available only with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
1.5 EcoBoost
This is the cheapest engine and certainly isnโ€™t short on performance. However, diesel versions of the S-Max use much less fuel and will lose you less money in depreciation. Available only with a six-speed manual gearbox.
