Ford Grand C-MAX review - first of all I would like to say that the Ford Grand C-MAX is a very good looking vehicle and that is very important for a car that claims to attract young families and people looking for smaller utility vehicles.

The C-MAX has a modern design that follows Ford's kinetic style features inside and out. By being the second generation of this family line the new C-MAX looks settled and a bit sporty at the same time.

The interior of the Grand C-MAX feels very roomy and it actually is quite a spacious car. One of the big advantages of this car is that offers the extra two rear seats in the back of the car in case you need to carry more than four people. It is quite an useful feature for those who need it of course.

The instruments are well laid out and most of the controls are logical and easy to use. The new C-MAC can be equipped with all the features and extras of a luxury vehicle including leather interior, satellite navigation and panoramic roof.

Actually the interior feels quite nice and upmarket for a vehicle of this price segment.
As talking for the price the fully equipped Ford Grand C-MAX doesn't come cheap. You will have to spend around
