The general perception of people carriers is of a vehicle with maximum space and flexibility, but which lacks any styling. Ford has quashed this stereotype with the fantastic S-Max, which combines practicality with innovative and premium design.
Full of class and beautiful styling, the Ford S-Max sets itself apart from the general MPV market, as a vehicle that is sporty and desirable. The most distinctive of the range is the S-Max Titanium 2.2 TDCi Titanium X Sport. Currently, available on the road from only £26,995, the 2.2 litre TDCi 5 door vehicle comes with heaps of features as standard, including fashionable 17” alloys, automatic LED headlamps and wipers, front and rear parking sensors, and Ford’s Power Starter button.
The Ford S-Max is the ideal family car for anyone who likes excitement when driving. The vehicle is full of character and a real pleasure to drive. The popular Duratorq TDCi version is very economical, while incorporating premium sports-styling – setting the bar exceptionally high for the MPV market. It delivers up to 49.5 mpg with minimal CO2 emissions while still providing an impressive 200ps of power. Adrian Cook, Lifestyle Ford’s General Sales Manager.
Whilst many opt for the diesel edition, Ford has also made its EcoBoost engine available for the S-Max line-up. Ford’s state-of-the art EcoBoost petrol engine uses innovative technology to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions without impacting on performance. Burning fuel in the most efficient and cleanest way possible, the engine is an attractive alternative to diesel or hybrid power units – and achieves a highly competitive fuel economy and low cost-of-ownership.
Power Shift transmission is also an option on the S-Max, and with the six-speed gearbox, the driver is able to switch gears seamlessly with no disruption of power and no need to engage the clutch. Driver and passenger comfort is further improved by the fantastic overall drive of the vehicle, as plenty of grip and balance allow the S-Max to take the corners and bends at ease.
All versions of the S-Max come with an impressive level of equipment and a host of optional extras available to make your Ford even more versatile and top-class. Multiple driver and passenger airbags also make safety a key priority. Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is also optional, alerting the driver of possible hazards outside of their vision.
The Ford S-Max is a brilliant model that is proving a very popular choice among our Ford customers. Not only is it practical with a 7-seat layout – it is so flexible it can suit any family’s needs. For anyone looking for a suitable family car without compromising style and performance, the Ford S-Max offers the perfect solution.
