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.

A range of advanced Ford Grand C-Max equipment is on offer, included as part of various trim, option and accessory packages. Two trim levels will be available on the Grand C-Max: Zetec and Titanium. The decision to have two trims is welcome and helps keeps things simple for buyers. Standard levels of kit are good. On Zetec standard equipment includes alloys, air-con, leather steering wheel, Thatcham category one alarm, DAB radio/CD and Bluetooth with USB connectivity, voice control and rear parking sensors.

Titanium adds auto front wipers, auto headlamps, dual electronic auto climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, hill launch assist, keyless start, cruise control with speed limiter, a Sony DAB audio and navigation system, power-folding mirrors and tyre pressure monitors. Optional extras are available as packs. The Convenience Pack includes a system called Active Park Assist, which effectively automatically parallel-parks the car for you.

This can take away a lot of the stress involved with making swift parking maneuvers in busy streets and is ideal for those with kids distracting them. Pick the Family Pack and you’ll get a powered tailgate on your Grand C-Max as well. It can be tailored to open to a specific height, to avoid it clashing with the roof of your garage. Those who splash out on the additional Sony DAB navigation system will also have the further option of adding a rear-view camera.

With superimposed guidelines it makes reversing considerably easier. It’s useful for people with the need to frequently park in tighter spaces. Those who want to make their Ford stand out a little more can specify an appearance pack which upgrades the exterior with touches like privacy glass and different trim. If you regularly tow a caravan or trailer then you’ll be pleased to hear that the Grand C-Max is available with a retractable trailer coupling.

Selecting this also adds a trailer stability program, which helps protect against the chance of trailer sway. A range of exterior colours can be chosen from, along with a selection of interior trims and other Ford Grand C-Max accessories. Lastly - and one thing that’s particularly worth looking out for - is the optional space-saver steel wheel. As standard the Grand C-Max comes with a tyre repair kit but these can’t fix a lot of punctures, leaving you stranded.

You don’t really want to be left waiting at the side of the road solely because of a puncture, especially if you’ve family onboard, so make sure to pick this option.
