Sharp steering and taut body control, mixed with a supple ride comfort, mean this seven-seater Ford is as much fun for the driver as it is comfortable for passengers.

Review Summary
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.

Review Summary
Its myriad practical touches, confident ride quality and relatively good value for money against more expensive rivals mean that its success should continue as it has for a number of years.

Review Summary
The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso has a more appealing interior, while the Seat Alhambra is a better choice if you regularly carry seven adults. However, the Ford S-Max beats both for driver enjoyment, and still offers an excellent blend of space and ride comfort.

Review Summary
The Ford S-Max is spacious, comfortable and won't cost a fortune to run. It's also one of the very best MPVs to drive.
