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.

The Grand C-Max achieved the full five stars in the Euro NCAP safety test, meaning Ford Grand C-Max safety is excellent. Ford has added a comprehensive suite of advanced active safety technologies featuring Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti-lock Braking (ABS) including Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Corner Brake Control (CBC).

The Grand C-Max has also got Traction Control System (TCS), Blind Spot Information System Active Park Assist. Passengers are well catered for as Ford has installed front airbags for driver and the front seat passenger. There are also side airbags for the driver and passenger and standard curtain airbags for the first and second row of seats. A Thatcham category one alarm is also standard and this has given the car a lower insurance grouping.

There's little to say when it comes to Ford Grand C-Max reliability. It's generally excellent, and this should prove to be the case for the Grand too because it uses the same engines and mechanical parts.
