Ford S-Max: Imperial Car Of The Month - Full Video Review

The Ford S-Max has long been one of the better MPVs on sale, offering a fresh approach to how 7-seat MPVs should be. Offering hatchback-like handling, great specifications and a 7 seat arrangement that means all the family can travel in comfort. 

The S-Max range starts at Edge that features Air conditioning, multi-function steering wheel, multiple SRS airbags and Bluetooth phone connectivity is available as an option. Zetec adds alloy wheels, digital climate control, quickclear heated windscreen and cruise control as an option. Titanium and Titanium X Sport are the range toppers offering a number of features that sets the S-Max apart from the competition: solar reflect windscreen, convers+ on board computer with colour display. The titanium X Sport is our pick of the range, featuring sporty looks and a mountain of extras inside, such as leather and alcantara upholstery, sporty red stitching and a carbon fibre effect dashboard.


What sets the S-Max apart from the rest of the 7 seaters on the market is in how it drives and looks. It was the first car to feature Ford’s tasteful “Kinetic Design” styling, which was featured on the rest of the Ford range in the following years.

While the 7-seat system in the S-Max is very effective and comfortable, it is not the easiest to use; requiring some patience to manoeuvre the back and bottom of the 2 rear seats up. Another hindrance is that there isn’t anywhere behind the 3rd row of seats to place the load cover, meaning you will have to leave it at home if the rear seats are in use.

In terms of the drive, as the S-Max is based on the Mondeo it drives fantastically well, feeling light and agile. In town, the S-Max is well composed and offers excellent visibility all round. On the motorway you realize just how good the sound-proofing is, the car maintains road noise levels at well below what you would expect for a vehicle of this size.

The S-max is our favourite 7 seat MPV on the market; it simply cannot be matched for specification, appeal and driveability. 8/10
