Ford S-Max

In a market flooded with SUVs, the Ford S-Max people carrier makes for a refreshing option that appeals just as much to families. The first model ran from 2006 to 2014, bringing much-needed sporty styling to the MPV category and driving manners to match. It’s incredibly practical too, with seven seats that fold flat in the back for a van-sized load area. It’s the same winning formula from the latest S-Max (2015 onwards) but with modernised interior and exterior styling. Both iterations offer an excellent balance between driver engagement and passenger comfort, with the fuel economy from diesel options approaching 50 mpg.
