  • Ford C-MAX (2010 - 2019)
    Neat styling. More practical than a Focus. Fine blend of ride comfort, handling and driver enjoyment. 1.6 TDCi emits 119g/km. High quality interior.
  • Ford Grand C-MAX (2010 - 2019)
    Seven seats as standard along with sliding side doors. Outstanding combination of ride and handling. Good range of low emission petrol and diesel engines.
