The New Ford C Max appears to be everything you could wish for in a car if you require something a bit bigger than a Focus. The centre rear seat may appear small but i have grow up children (adults) and they all fit in the rear of the car comfortably. The Titanium has the advantage of the usual extras, but the main advantage for me was the height adjustable passengers seat which you can not get on the Zetex. The diesel engin noise inside the cab is so quiet that you forget you are driving a diesel engine car. The reason for choosing a diesel was the £30 road Tax and more fuel efficiency. Sadly the engine is a lot more thirsty than advertised. We get 40 mpg around town and 45Mpg On the motor way. I hope this improves as the mileage increases, but i dare say the Petrol version may not give the MPG as advertised, so all in all it was still a diesel for us. I calculated that we will save £800 per year compared to our old 1.8 petrol focus in fuel,tax and insurance cost, which puts a big smile on my face. The ride quality is 2ND to none in the small MPV class. It drives as good as our 2001hatchback Focus did and we all know how good they were.
FORD C-MAX 1.6 TDCi Zetec 5dr (Review date: 14th April '11)
having driven the car for 6 weeks, its a comfterble drive, as well as being quiet on the roads. there are a few faults in my opinion i could mention which are ..the first being my strongest dislike, being the positioning of the handbrake. the radio display area is far to small and has to much sun reflection in it, which makes reading it virtually impossible in daylight. at night it is fine as it is lit up.
the "A" pillers obscure vision of the nearside and offside kerbs, which is a bit of a pain.
the brakes are a little to sharp but once you get used to them its ok.
they claim its a 3 seater area in the back, but fails to mention the middle seat is only suitable for a very skinny adult or a small child.
and the boot really needs to be of a level access, to make it easier for putiing things in the boot, like a wheelchair.
having said that, the driving positions are easy to set for personal needs and comfort. the extra little mirror is a nice added touch, and enables you to see the children in the back seat more clearly. another nice touch are the wing mirrors closing in when car is locked.
i think the car could do with more storage areas in the front, as there is a lot of space unused on the vast dashboard. which could be put to better use.
considering the price of diesel of late the car makes about 45 miles to the gallon pottering around town.
