What's the used Ford S-MAX like?
The Ford S-Max is a rare beast - an MPV that's fun to drive. It's got lots of grip through corners, and body roll is kept in check, making it great on twisty roads. The suspension absorbs most bumps to give a comfortable ride, yet the steering is sharp and responsive.
If you're looking for a larger seven-seater, then consider the Ford Galaxy (06-), which, although similar to the S-Max, is longer and taller, giving passengers more space.
The first two rows of seats in the S-Max have plenty of leg and headroom, but although the third row of seats is fine for kids, taller passengers will struggle. Access is easy enough, however.
All five rear seats fold flat into the boot floor when they're not needed. Plenty of boot space means you can carry bulky loads with ease, and even with all seven seats in place, there's still enough room for a couple of bags.
