Independent Review

  • Ten Second Review

    With two very different versions offering the choice of five or seven seats, the latest Ford C-MAX is now a major player across the entire compact MPV market sector. The advanced engines and innovative seating system impress, as does the edgy styling which is common to all modern Fords.

  • Driving Experience

    There's nothing old fashioned about the C-MAX engine range, Ford having fitted a collection of leading edge powerplants littered with the kind of technology that the layman has no hope of understanding. That's assuming you ignore the price-leading 105PS petrol 1.6 which is there to suit potential buyers who are budget limited. Beyond it, the cleverness really starts with the 1.0T EcoBoost petrol engine, offered in either 100 or 125PS guises. If you doubt that a 1.0-litre powerplant is enough in a car this big, then you need to try one. If you're after more power, then there are 150 or 182PS versions of the 1.6T EcoBoost powerplant. All these get Start/Stop.

    Diesel choices include a 115PS 1.6-litre TDCi and 140 and 163PS versions of the 2.0 TDCi unit, both with the option of Powershift automatic transmission. These units have up to 340Nm of pulling power available.

  • Design & Build

    It's a while since we've been surprised by the looks of a Ford product but the 'kinetic design' themes that have been rolled out across the model range are far from unattractive so we'll forgive the lack of adventure on the part of Blue Oval designers. By the standards set by other compact MPVs, which aren't always the highest, the C-MAX is a handsome devil. Avid Ford watchers will recognise the trapezoidal grille, the swept back headlights and the sharp line around the bonnet and the flanks. What's also obvious is that there are marked differences between the five and seven-seater models.

    The standard C-MAX is very similar in size to the model it replaced and features a curving roofline that drops away towards the rear for a sporty look. The Grand C-MAX is fully 4,520mm long with a wheelbase increased by 140mm compared to the standard car. It's also 40mm taller and these extended dimensions allow it to cram in that third row of seating.

    The roof line is flatter and the window pillars are thinner to enhance the view out of the Grand C-MAX but the other major difference is that, while the C-MAX has conventional rear doors, the Grand C-MAX employs sliding doors on its flanks. This creates wider apertures for improved access to the rear seats and eliminates the risk of children clouting adjacent cars when they clamber out in the car park.

    The design inside the C-MAX looks slick. In line with the other modern Fords, there's plenty of metallic detailing and the quality of fit and finish seems high. It's the C-MAX seats that will provoke the most interest, however, as the designers clearly did a lot of work on maximising versatility.

    In the Grand C-MAX the sliding side doors mean it's possible to access the third row without sliding or tilting the outer seats in the second row. There's also a clever feature where the centre seat in the second row can collapse under the right hand seat, giving a six-seater layout with walk-through access to the rear. The 5-seat models don't miss out. They get the same seats which tumble down individually in one motion to create a flat floor: there are just less of them.

  • Market & Model

    Naturally, there's a whole range of features available to C-MAX customers via the trim level range and the options list. It's possible to replace the standard manual gearboxes with a Powershift dual-clutch automatic and a wide range of safety features are offered, including a automatic parking system known as Active Park Assist and a rear-view camera. The cabin environment can be lightened by the fitment of a panoramic glass roof and there's a powered tailgate to help when you've got an armful of shopping.

    Standard equipment on all models includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, leather steering wheel, Thatcham category one alarm, DAB radio/CD and Bluetooth with USB connectivity and voice control. Grand C-MAX has powered child-proof locks on the rear dual sliding doors, and rear parking sensors.

  • Cost of Ownership

    Like any MPV, the C-MAX is designed to keep running costs manageable. That sleek exterior design has the added benefit of low aerodynamic drag with Cd values of 0.30 and 0.32 for the five and seven-seaters respectively. The engines are also very efficient with the 1.0T EcoBoost 100PS petrol unit capable of 55.4mpg on the combined cycle and 117g/km of CO2. Even the 150PS 1.6T EcoBoost petrol unit is capable of nearly 45mpg and 144g/km emissions. Pick a 1.6-litre TDCi diesel and the combined cycle economy figure is 61.4mpg while emissions dip to 117g/km.

  • Summary

    It was clear what the Ford C-MAX needed to really make it big in the compact MPV sector and that was seven seats. Today, the Grand C-MAX fulfils that requirement, leaving the standard model free to tread a smaller, sportier path. The family buyers that the C-MAX is targeting are a demanding bunch but the good looks, spacious cabin and eye-opening versatility of the current range seems certain to convince a fair number of them.
