Ten Second Review

Ford's second generation S-MAX remains a large 7-seater MPV for people who, well, don't like MPVs. Ford calls this a 'Sports Activity Vehicle' - a People Carrier certainly, but one that's more involving to drive and nicer to look at. This sharper-looking MK2 model re-interprets this apparently contradictory concept with greater efficiency and technology, remaining a breath of fresh air in what can otherwise be a pretty dull sector of the market. Let's check out the volume 2.0 TDCi 180PS diesel version.

Background

Owning an MPV, particularly a large one, isn't supposed to be one of life's memorable experiences. A People Carrier is normally a grudge purchase, a vehicle you need rather than one you might want. Or at least it usually is. Ford thinks differently. That's why they brought us the S-MAX, here rejuvenated in second generation guise. It's stuffed with segment-leading technology and also includes an AWD option to keep those SUVs in their place. Plus it claims to be just as stylish and rewarding as its revolutionary predecessor. Can it continue to offer an appealing option if you need a large MPV but just don't want one? We elected to try this car with the 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine most will want, in this case specified in pokey 180PS guise.

Driving Experience

The fact that Ford has its marginally more practical Galaxy model for those only concerned with practical 7-seat A to B family transport leaves this S-MAX free to provide something pretty unique in the segment for bigger MPVs: namely, a good looking car dynamically capable enough to reward the enthusiastic driver. Other big 7-seaters feel vaguely pointless if you're alone in them on the move: this one just shrinks around you and encourages you to take the back road home, where you'll find bodyroll kept impressively well in check for a car of this size. There's plenty of traction too, even if you don't go for the optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. Clever Integral-Link rear suspension borrowed from the fourth generation Ford Mondeo this car's based upon is fundamental to this impressive showing. And though the freshly added electric power steering system isn't quite as feelsome as the previous hydraulic set-up, standard Torque vectoring system that lightly brakes the inside front wheel through tight bends and sharpens turn-in still makes this S-MAX feel rewarding through the twisties. Engine-wise, there are two EcoBoost turbo petrol units of 1.5 and 2.0-litres in size, but most buyers will want one of the 2.0-litre TDCi diesels. There are 120, 150 and 180PS variants of this unit - we tried the 180PS version which with 2WD manages 62mph from rest in 9.7s en route to 131mph.

Design and Build

Photos of this second generation S-MAX suggest styling only lightly evolved from that of the MK1 model but in the metal, that lower roofline, the slimline lights and the muscular rear haunches ensure that this improved version appears sharper and more distinctive than before. Helping in this is the way that the front A-pillars have been moved further back to create a longer, more sculpted bonnet that flows into the raised, chromed trapezoidal Ford front grille that's now familiar from other cars in the company's range. And behind the wheel? Well, as before, the vast glass area and the slim windscreen pillars mean that all-round visibility is excellent. Ahead of you through the leather-trimmed three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, there's a clear, classy instrument cluster that in mid and upper-range models gives you this sophisticated 10.2-inch TFT set-up made up of various inset multi-function displays. Anything this set-up can't tell you will probably be covered by the feature that on all models dominates the centre of the dash, the 8-inch SYNC2 colour touchscreen, there to play its part in reducing button clutter and giving the cabin a cleaner, smarter feel. Out back, there's plenty of room in both second and third seating rows and a luggage capacity that varies between 285 and 2,020-litres, depending on the seat configuration.

Market and Model

List pricing suggests that you'll be paying somewhere in the £25,000 to £36,000 bracket for your S-MAX, depending upon the variant you choose. All models sold in this country come in 7-seat configuration and if you avoid the entry-level petrol and diesel variants, there's the £1,500 option of the Powershift 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission we tried. Ford reckons that almost 97% of buyers will want one of the TDCi diesel variants and you can see why. There are, after all, only a couple of petrol versions, with the 2.0-litre EcoBoost variant too expensive for most to run and the entry-level 1.5-litre EcoBoost model saving you only £800 on the base diesel, yet coming with 30% less pulling power and 20% higher running costs. Not tempting. So, diesel it is then - specifically a 2.0-litre one, since all S-MAX TDCi engines are of that size - even the top 210PS flagship Bi-Turbo version. Looking at the various TDCi options available, we'd want to find the £800 premium to go from the rather feebly-performing entry-level 120PS unit to the mid-range 150PS version that, priced at around £26,000, probably represents the sweet spot in the line-up. For this test though, we elected to try the slightly pokier 180PS variant but it's quite an expensive choice: since you can't have this engine in basic 'Zetec' trim, you're looking at needing nearly £29,000 for it - quite a jump. If you want to take up the opportunity that this second generation S-MAX offers of finding an extra £1,500 for Ford's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, you'll find it only in the diesel range where it's only offered as an option on the 150PS manual model or this 180PS Powershift automatic variant.

Cost of Ownership

Assuming you're happy with a manual gearbox and front wheel drive, you'll get the same returns whether you order your S-MAX TDCi with 120, 150 or, as in this case, 180PS. Specifically, we're talking 56.5mpg on the combined cycle and 129g/km of CO2. That's not quite as good a showing as you'd get from slightly smaller 7-seat MPVs like Renault's Grand Scenic or Citroen's C4 Grand Picasso, but it's on a par with the latest equivalent versions of large People Carrying rivals like SEAT's Alhambra and Volkswagen's Sharan. A Ford Mondeo Estate with the same engine we tried would be about 15% cheaper to run but, as you you'd expect, the S-MAX's showing does exactly match that of its sister model, the Galaxy, which shares exactly the same engine range. What else? Well, all S-MAX models come with an unremarkable 3 year/ 60,000 mile Ford warranty, with Ford Assistance at the roadside for the first year. If you plan on keeping your car for longer or are a high mileage driver, you can pay a small extra cost to extend that warranty to either 4 years and 80,000 miles or 5 years and 100,000 miles. There's also the option of a 'Ford Protect Premium Plan' that over two or three years, can cut the cost of scheduled servicing.
