Ford S-Max

Ford S-Max Motability car sideThis all new S-Max has all the credentials of the old one, space for seven and fun to drive. There’s just as much room inside as there was before, you can fit three adults and more importantly three child car seats in the second row of seats and while the third row is ideal for children you can squeeze an adult or two in for a short journey. There are loads of cubbies and storage bins dotted around the cabin, and those in the rearmost seats even get a pair of cupholders to make longer journeys less painful for small kids. Bootspace is decent, with all seven seats in place there is 285 litres of spaces which is more than a Fiesta.

Ford S-Max Motability car rearFord have removed the trusty diesel engine and replaced this with a 2.5 litre petrol hybrid, the 1.1kWh battery is charged by regeneration processes and the petrol engine turning. Combined the power output is 187 brake horse power and 0-62 miles per hour is a sprightly 10 seconds. The S-Max is still able to pull an 1800kg caravan but you will miss out on the torque of the diesel for uphill sections and overtakes. The official economy of 44.1 miles per gallon is the same as the outgoing diesel. The S-Max is only avaialble as a CVT Automatic and the price increases by £400 over the diesel price from last quarter.
