Parker's Awards: Ford C-MAX is

The Ford C-MAX Titanium has been labelled as the best value multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) available in the UK.

According to Parker's, the model offers competitive fuel efficiency for its sector, as well as boasting lower running costs and lower depreciation than many of its competing vehicles.

Judges also acknowledged the practicality of the range's Easy Fuel capless refuelling system, which prevents drivers from filling the car with the wrong type of fuel.

Parker's editor Kieren Puffet said that the Ford C-MAX and C-MAX Grand are spacious, luxurious and "great to drive".

"When it comes to value the Ford C-MAX scores highly. The 1.6-litre diesel provides great performance and 61mpg combined fuel economy means trips to the fuel pump aren't frequent," he commented.

The C-MAX is based on the new Ford Focus platform, and a reviewer for the Daily Telegraph recently noted the "plateau-like" torque curve of the MPV, describing it as a "comfortable and refined load carrier".ADNFCR-3205-ID-800466134-ADNFCR
