AA Cars works closely with thousands of UK used vehicle dealers to bring you one of the largest selections of Ford C Max vehicles on the market. You can also browse Ford dealers to find a second hand vehicle close to you today. All used Ford C Max on the AA Cars website come with free 12 months breakdown cover.
With comparatively low running costs, plenty of space and handling that marks it out as one of the best-in-class, the C-Max has emerged as a serious contender for the title of ultimate modern family car. In an urban setting, the handling is light and agile, on a motorway it's comfortable and composed. If you're looking to cut costs, consider the 1.6 diesel which offers a low company car tax, no road tax and over 60mpg. Inside, the soft-touch materials convey quality, the elevated position offers excellent stability and there are plenty extras - consider the upgraded Zetec trim which offers alloys, AC, DAB Radio and heated front screen. The car earned top marks for safety in the Euro NCAP Safety tests and, in terms of flexibility, there can be fewer better cars: the three back seats in the five-seat model can even be removed entirely for the very biggest loadspace.

Ford C Max Back to top
The Ford C-MAX is one of the leading cars of its class due to it being spacious, practical and one of the best handling cars of its size.
Along with it being economical to run and reliable, the C-MAX is one of the top sellers in the MPV market, despite being a latecomer to the scene. Its mix of space and practicality, along with offering an exciting drive, has made it popular with anyone looking for a family car that can offer a bit more life.
Why buy a C Max? Back to top
The Ford C-MAX range is fun to drive, spacious and economical.
One of the leading cars in the MPV market, the strengths of the Ford C-MAX are its space, practicality and handling.
As with most cars in the MPV category, the biggest draw of the C-MAX is its space. Previously there was no seven seat option in the C-MAX range, which did set it behind many of its rivals. Since 2009 however, the seven seater C-MAX Grand has been available, widening the range to be more competitive. In the five seat model passenger space is ample, and with all but the front two seats folded the C-MAX offers around 1,700 litres of luggage space.
This space option may be a fairly standard offering in the MPV category, but where the C-MAX comes into its own is out on the road. Steering and handling make the C-MAX both light and manoeuvrable at low speeds, and quick and responsive when faster. Despite its size, body roll is minimal, and as a result the car is surprisingly nimble.
Diesels are typically more popular than their petrol counterparts among C-MAX drivers, but there is a good choice on offer. There is a range of Ecoboost petrol engines - which offer better efficiency - available on the newer C-MAXs, while the diesels return between around 45 and 60 mpg economy, making them a strong economical option.
The second generation models are some of the most eye catching in the MPV market, which is undoubtedly an attraction in a class too often designed purely for practicality. Along with a good safety rating - having achieved the full five star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests - a focus on quality finishings, and coming well-equipped, the C-MAX remains one of the leading family MPVs on the market.
