Used Ford S-Max for sale

The Ford S-MAX has been around since 2006. This particular generation has been on the scene since 2015, offering buyers a different approach to the MPV.

It's not easy being an MPV after all, looks and driving experience tend to be at the bottom of the list, but Ford ensured this generation of S-MAX wasn't going to fall short in these areas. In a nutshell, the S-MAX has a lot to offer as a used buy, such as:

  • Smart looks
  • Seven-seats
  • Car-like driving experience
  • Good engine choices

Discover in more detail the S-MAX and its positives below.

Engines and Driving Experience

Available as either a 1.5-litre petrol, 2.0-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel. The diesels are the most economical with 47mpg possible. Petrol alternatives can still return just under 35mpg.

The S-MAX stands out against the usual mix of MPVs due to its fine driving experience, which is similar to that of a large hatchback. Sharp steering is joined by rigid body control, whilst still managing to offer refinement and comfort.

This ensures the S-MAX is comfortable for passengers, along with being engaging for the driver - a nice mix to have in a vehicle which normally doesn't offer such traits.

Interior, Technology and Safety

The driving position of the S-MAX leads you to believe you're driving a saloon or hatchback, as the seating position is very car-like, and not upright like in most MPVs.

Interior style is similar to other Ford models, as the S-MAX shares some parts from the Mondeo. It is perhaps not as digital-centric as some MPVs but as a family car, it has a no messing approach about it.

Entry-level Zetec models come with useful safety tech such as front and rear parking sensors and a Quickclear heated front windscreen. Move up to the Titanium and take advantage of a Ford SYNC 3 DAB Navigation System and Traffic Sign Recognition.

A max five stars were awarded in the EURO NCAP crash tests for the Ford S-MAX, meaning safety is well and truly taken care of.

Is the Ford S-Max right for me?

If you enjoy an involving drive, but still need MPV practicality, then the Ford S-MAX makes a great case for itself.

With handsome styling also on offer, this particular MPV is quite possibly one of the best choices out there. A BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is perhaps a touch classier, but arguably the Ford just pips it in the looks department.

It may not be a digital revolution inside, but as a whole package, the S-MAX is a great overall used car purchase.
