The Ford Grand C-Max was the one that got away. In 2003 Ford launched the five-seat C-Max but chose not to offer it as a seven-seat version.

Comfort

Ford Grand C-Max comfort is very good. Road, wind and engine noise are hardly audible, which makes the cabin a cozy place. There is lots of head- and legroom for the driver and front seat passenger. On long journeys the seats proved to be comfortable. They are well cushioned and have good side supports. The ride is well tailored for family driving, making the Grand C-Max an assured motorway cruiser.

Practicality

The Grand C-Max will be the big seller because the seven-seat layout works well. The engineers have designed a flexible 2+3+2 seating configuration. The three individual seats in the rear split 40/20/40. Practicality can be enhanced by adding the Comfort System, which allows you to fold the centre seat away and slide the outer seats backwards giving passengers more legroom and a 2+2 configuration.

However, the two seats in the rear should be used for small children because space is limited. Loadroom ranges from a minimum of 432 litres and expands to 1,723 litres with the rear seats folded.

Behind the wheel

One of the advantages of the first-generation Grand C-Max is its high-driving position which delivers excellent forward visibility. The car has also got a dash-mounted gearshift and central console and although the layout remains the same as the previous five-door C-Max the materials are of a higher quality, mirroring those used in luxury German brands.
