The easy-to drive S-Max provides a comfortable ride for all on board and features plenty of standard features, as well as a range of cost-effective engines choices. This smart-looking MPV is available in Zetec, Titanium and Titanium Sport trims.
A chrome upper front grille and 17-inch alloys bring an appealing sheen to the vehicle, and tinted glass is fitted front and rear. Body-coloured elements include door handles and power-operated, heated and foldable door mirrors, the latter featuring integrated indicators and puddle lights. Further illumination includes courtesy-delay headlights, daytime running lights, front fog lamps and rear LED lights. A Quickclear heated front windscreen comes with heated washer jets.
The S-Max’s seven-person cabin allows front-row occupants the opportunity to enjoy sports-style front seats, both offering four-way adjustability and adjustable lumbar support. The driver can get to grips with a leather-trimmed gear knob and steering wheel, which also offers rake-and-reach adjustability. Thanks to the Ford Power Starter Button, there is no need to insert a key to ignite the engine. Second and third-row passengers benefit from the presence of reading lights.
Other standard features include power-assisted steering, remote central locking, one-shot power-operated windows in both the front and rear, dual-zone temperature control and rear-compartment air conditioning. Smart cubby spaces include front-row under-seat compartments, centre-console stowage, an overhead compartment and cup holders. A 285-litre boot when all the seats are up can be expanded to as much as 2,020 litres with the rear two benches folded.
A 2.0-litre diesel engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, returns as much as 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 129g/km. This is the most fuel-efficient option available for the S-Max, and comes with entry-level Zetec trims, with a choice of 118bhp or 148bhp. All engine options come with automatic start/stop system as standard.
An eight-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker sound system featuring DAB radio, AM/FM radio and a CD player, and SYNC2 come as standard. The S-Max has been awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, and driver aids include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and front and rear-parking sensors. Passive safety features such as childproof rear door locks, multiple airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters are featured too, as is a Thatcham category one alarm.
The S-Max is available now at Ames Ford, located on Fison Way, Thetford in Norfolk. We are open every day of the week, apart from Sundays, and look forward to assisting you in any way we can.
