Redefined Grand C-Max works great for large families

The Grand C-Max is Ford's revived seven-seater MPV, which has benefited from a mid-life refresh, and it remains one of the most capable family MPVs on the road.

Combining low running costs with a roomy interior and improved handling, the new Grand C-Max has been cleverly packaged to offer buyers the ideal family car, while being crammed with the latest new tech. There's no denying the Grand C-Max is a large car but manoeuvring around town is stressfree, thanks to its plethora of useful driver aids.

The C-Max family is available in the same three trim levels: Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X. Each model is well equipped with all the latest gadgets and gizmos, ranging from driver entertainment to passenger safety.

Both the standard and Grand variants introduce a number of technological upgrades, including Ford's SYNC 2 voiceactivated connectivity system on Titanium models and the segment first hands-free tailgate tool usually found on more expensive cars. The centre console has also been tidied and simplified.

The Grand C-Max is certainly one of the more enjoyable seven-seaters to
drive and the 2.0-litre diesel's boost in power and torque is noticeable both on and off the motorway. The Grand C-Max is more than capable of safely overtaking and, thanks to improved grip, won't let you down in the corners.

New C-Max models will join the recently launched S-Max dealerships this summer.
