The S-MAX is a breeze to drive and features a comfortable cabin that can convey up to seven passengers. This practical MPV comes in three trim levels: Zetec, Titanium and Titanium Sport.
This versatile people carrier features a chrome-trimmed upper grille, comprising horizontal chrome louvres, and 17-inch 20-spoke alloy wheels, secured with locking nuts.
Body-coloured fixtures include power-operated, folding and heated door mirrors with integrated indicators and puddle lights.
Further illumination includes courtesy-delay headlights, front fog lamps and daytime running lights. The vehicle is fitted with tinted glass at the front and rear, and a Quickclear heated windscreen is also included.
Once inside the capacious S-MAX, front-row occupants can relax into sports-style seats, each offering four-way adjustability and lumbar support. Further adjustability is provided by a rake-and-reach steering wheel which is leather-trimmed, as is the vehicle’s gearshift knob. Included is Ford’s Power button, making it unnecessary to insert your key to start the engine. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, electric front and rear windows (with one-touch facility) and automatic dual-zone air conditioning. Stowage provision includes front-row under-seat compartments and an overhead console. Cargo capacity is 285 litres with (all seats up), rising to 965 litres (five seats up) and as much as 2,020 litres (two seats up).
A 1.5-litre 158bhp petrol engine delivers up to 43.5mpg and a 149g/km CO2 ¬emissions figure. Alternatively, a 2.0-litre 118bhp (or 158bhp) diesel unit returns as much as 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 129g/km, making it the most fuel-efficient choice available for the S-MAX. Both options are selectable with entry-level Zetec grades and are each paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. All trims feature Auto Start-Stop as standard.
An eight-speaker sound system includes DAB radio, an FM/AM radio and a CD player. Also featured as standard are a touchscreen display, Ford SYNC and USB, AUX and SD connectivity.
Certified with a five-star rating by Euro NCAP, the S-MAX’s driving aids include front and rear parking sensors, Anti-lock Braking System (with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and Electronic Stability Control. Passive safety features such as child-proof locks, multiple airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters and seatbelt reminders are included too.
Remote-controlled central locking and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm system help to keep the vehicle secure.
