For Motability customers who need a smart, flexible car and an enjoyable driving experience, the Ford C-MAX is an excellent choice. Ford has an impressive history of creating practical cars which are also a lot of fun to drive, and this model is no exception. Whether you choose the Zetec, Titanium or Titanium X variant, you can enjoy every journey in comfort and style.
The C-MAX has a sleek, aerodynamic shape, with graceful lines that disguise its size and a bold front end dominated by the characteristic Ford trapezoidal grille. All models are well-appointed with exterior features, including front fog lights, and alloy wheels. The range-topping Titanium X model features striking 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, adaptive bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. The C-MAX is also available with the hands-free tailgate, which you can open by waving your foot across the sensor under the rear bumper.
The refined cabin has space for five people to travel comfortably. You also have the option of a rear bench that splits 40/20/40, allowing you to fold down the central seat and create an even more spacious, four-person layout. You can fit 471 litres in the boot of the C-MAX, and with the rear seats folded down this increases to 1,851 litres. The high driving position gives you an excellent view of the road and also makes it easy to get in and out of the driver’s seat.
All models are equipped with Ford SYNC, including Bluetooth® connectivity, Emergency Assistance and voice control functionality. You also get air conditioning and a heated windscreen as standard. The Titanium trim upgrades this to dual-zone automatic air conditioning and adds convenience features such as cruise control, while the range-topping Titanium X variant boasts a panoramic roof, heated sports seats and SYNC 2 with an eight-inch touchscreen.
The range of engines available beneath the bonnet of the C-MAX offers lively performance, and the handling is engaging and responsive. The C-MAX is easy to drive around town, with light and accurate steering. It is also sharp at higher speeds, making light work of long motorway drives. Ford also equips this model with intelligent torque vectoring technology, which automatically sends power to the wheel with the most grip in a corner.
There are two 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol units to choose from, along with a 1.5 or 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine. The most powerful unit delivers a strong and capable performance and is available with Ford’s excellent six-speed Powershift automatic gearbox. The 1.5-litre diesel option is the most efficient, delivering 67mpg and CO2 emissions of just 110g/km.
The 5-seat NEWC-MAX Zetec 1.6 125 PS manual or 1.5 TDCI 120 PS manual engine for Nil Advance Payment.
All available with rear parking sensors † and metallic paint.
