First launched in 2003 as the Focus C-Max and rebadged as the Ford C-Max in 2007, this compact MPV has plenty of room for the whole family. It’s a great value second-hand buy, whether you’re shopping for a petrol or diesel model. If you like the C-Max but need even more space and flexibility, check out the seven-seat Grand C-Max. It offers all the style and practicality of the original, with extra boot space and a third row of seats.
