What is a Ford S-Max?
First released in 2006, the S-Max was designed by Ford as a best-of-both-worlds hybrid of saloon and SUV. It’s a combination that has certainly been embraced by the motoring public. Variously styled as SUV, SAV, mini-van, people carrier and MPV, the S-Max has plenty of room for everyone with its 7-seat layout.
It’s part of a Ford family, sitting alongside the more compact C-Max and the slightly pricier Galaxy in Ford’s line-up.
While it’s a capable family workhorse, the S-Max has enough style and comfort features to keep motoring aficionados from feeling compromised when taking it out for a spin. For example, on the latest models there are massage-enabled seats and a panoramic sunroof, spanning the whole length of the cabin.
