The Ford S-MAX has won Britain's best MPV for the third year running at the Auto Express New Car Awards. Jon Gunn-Smith, Ford large car product manager, said "Ford S-MAX's hat-trick of wins at the Auto Express New Car Awards is testimony to a car which has redefined the Multi-Purpose Vehicle segment. Almost 45,000 UK motorists agree with Auto Express and have bought one for themselves. They appreciate not only the looks and functionality of a Ford S-MAX, but also it's driving quality. This has been strengthened by the latest model, which includes a 163PS 2.0-litre diesel engine returning almost 50mpg and 203PS 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine."
The Ford S-MAX is exceptionally spacious and remarkably responsive. It has seven seats, the second and third rows have the Ford fold flat system for versatility allowing for maximum luggage space. Standard features on the Ford S-MAX include ESP, EBD, air conditioning, quick clear heated windscreen, ISOFIX hard point attachment for child seat, advanced Bluetooth with voice control, intelligent protection system including drivers knee airbag and Trip computer.
Auto Express editor-in-chief David Johns said “With its eye-catching interior, razor-sharp chassis and adaptable seven-seat cabin, the people carrier benefitted from a thorough overhaul this year. A powerful new line-up of EcoBoost petrol engines and revised diesels, as well as an increase in cabin quality, has helped keep the Ford ahead of the game."
