The Ford S-Max has been a big success for Ford, arguably it was the first MPV that looked good and even drove exceptionally well and those features have kept demand strong. The S-Max can seat seven, although the rear most seats are best suited to children. As you might have already guessed there is a vast amount of space in the cabin and everything inside has a good quality feel to it. On the road it drives exceptionally well, the ride is firm but very composed and handling is easily the best in class. Being a family car Ford designed it with safety in mind and there is an abundance of airbags and safety features. The engines are used in many other Ford models so have a proven track record for good reliability.
