The five-seat Ford C-Max is a family vehicle that epitomises practicality. The model, which combines the agility of a hatchback with the versatility of an MPV is comfortable, well-equipped, and even features engines that are hugely economical. As such, there’s few vehicles in the Ford new-car lineup that rise to the challenges of the modern family like the Ford C-Max.
The exterior design of the new Ford C-Max is one that ensures the model sits nicely among its siblings in the Ford range. From the chrome-trimmed front grille through to the one-piece panoramic roof, this is a model that exudes quality. Subtle design measures as colour coded door handles and wing-mirrors add to the sleek look, while 16-inch alloy wheels are stylish and contemporary in appearance.
Inside is where the new C-Max really shines. Providing exceptional levels of interior space, there is no challenge the C-Max can’t overcome. Boot space is ample for all requirements, while the versatile and flexible seating - which folds, tumbles, and can be removed altogether - will enable you to tailor the arrangement according to your needs. Quality materials are par for the course, and an elevated driving position provides a commanding view of the road ahead. With such measures as air conditioning, a heated windscreen, and intelligent stowage options, the C-Max provides all you could possibly need for comfortable motoring.
Vehicle performance comes courtesy of a 1.0-litre petrol engine capable of producing either 98bhp or 123bhp. In combination with a six-speed manual gearbox, you can achieve up to 55.4mpg while CO2 emissions are kept low at 117g/km. Additional engine options - such as a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel - offer greater power and even greater economy, with the diesel unit capable of a truly impressive 68.9mpg. With Auto Start-Stop technology included as standard across the range, you can be confident that you’ll always be maximising the performance of your vehicle.
Safety and technology
What is a family car without the utmost in safety? When it comes to the new Ford C-Max, the protection of you and your passengers has been a key feature of the model’s design. A five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP demonstrates the level of protection to be expected, with such measures as Anti-Lock Braking, Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System all featured.
Technology doesn’t end there. With Ford’s SYNC 3 communications technology enabling you to control calls, messaging, entertainment, and satellite navigation, you can enjoy the complete modern driving experience.
