New Ford S-MAX

The S-Max combines big practicality and a fun drive, the result being the Ford S-Max, a very well-balanced MPV. Default specs are great, whilst the space and design are very practical for transport.

Appearance

The newest edition of the S-Max is consistent with Ford’s changes across their entire range. The implementation of the Aston Martin-esque grille and slender, curved headlights are reminiscent of the newest Mondeo, giving the MPV a smart, premium look. Dimensions, however, are somewhat sportier, with a longer, wider stance and a curved roof line. Inside, quality is improved, with upmarket materials and robust switchgear, as well as a more straightforward dash orientated around Ford’s SYNC2 infotainment system.

Performance

Ford’s consistent focus on driving dynamics means that the S-Max doesn’t drive like an MPV whatsoever. The low centre of gravity from its squat stance gives it a nimble quality, with an assured suspension that keeps its body in check, as well as soaking up bumps on the road. The steering is also nicely weighted and sharp too; the S-Max has an ability to turn precisely and accurately. The selection of engines at hand range from turbocharged petrol units to diesels that are predictably efficient – Ford’s own bet is on the 2.0 litre TDCi, which offers 148bhp and has a nice balance of mid-range torque and low running costs. The S-Max is generous with even its basic trim, offering climate control, full parking sensors, Bluetooth and electric windows. Adding the Titanium trim makes cruise control, USB inputs, DAB radio and various cosmetic changes available. There are also airbags everywhere – situated at the front seats, driver’s knees and the windows of the back two rows.

Safety & Economy

Tyre pressure monitoring, variable lock steering and automatic braking are included.

Conclusion

Perfect for Families The S-Max is impressive in its scope, combining a practical MPV with many of the attributes of a hatchback. Besides stylish looks, its comfort and performance make it suitable for a wide variety of applications, from family outings to business trips, both of which will benefit from its economical fuel output.
