Ford Focus C-Max Review

Ford may have entered the compact people carrier game late, but the Focus C-Max proves that it’s about impact and not just timing when it comes to capturing your market. The Focus C-Max outweighs all earlier compact people carriers in its comfort, neat styling, and superior build quality. The downside is it carries less than the seven-seat standard of most compact people carriers. The Ford Focus C-Max proves however that you only need the essential features to transport the family throughout a hectic or normal day.


Both of the Ford Focus C-Max’s petrol and diesel engines deliver great power and driving ability. The entry-level 1.6-litre at 98bhp unit does not limit the vehicle’s family driving capability. Another great option is the larger 1.8-litre engine at 123bhp that performs just as adequately. For drivers after greater power, there’s the 2.0-litre at 142bhp that’s considered the most powerful petrol engine in the range. You’ll have no problems overtaking thanks to the car’s smooth cruising and six-speed gearbox. Most buyers opt for the diesels, such as the 1.6-litre TDCi that’s available at either 110 or 90bhp. This diesel engine not only delivers incredible power but also the right balance between fuel economy and a decent performance. Another alternative would be the 1.6-litre at 110bhp unit, which sports similar power to the TDCi. At the top of the range is the 2.0-litre at 134bhp TDCi, which can achieve a top speed at 124mph and can arrive at 60mph after 9.3 seconds.

The Focus C-Max also delivers impressive handling ability; but loyalists shouldn’t be surprised given that Ford is known for its handling hatchbacks. Expect a smooth ride along motorways and a seamless speed transition along backroads. Steering, body control, and agility is also excellently delivered on any road.

The cabin may not stand out in terms of design, but it does insulate passengers from engine, road, and wind noise. Dials and switchgears are easy on the eye thanks to the upgrade on materials and the C-Max’s orientation towards an upmarket. Leg and headroom are generous, even at the back where there’s additional shoulder room. All seats are comfortable and offer adequate support for long journeys.

Drivers will have no problem adjusting the steering wheel according to their height and desired position. Build quality behind the wheel is just as good as the rest of the cabin. You’ll definitely appreciated the facelifted models’ additional details found around the instruments.


Although the cabin delivers ergonomically and employs high-quality materials, its overall design fails to compete against its more sophisticated rivals. The driving position can easily be adjusted, but the windscreen pillars tend to block visibility at the junctions.

All engines perform well on the road, with only the 2.0 TDCi having the tendency to be unruly along wet roads. Thankfully there’s an ESP system in place so that front wheels are kept under control. Safety is assured thanks to its four-star Euro NCAP crash test rating. Next to other vehicles with five-star ratings, however, the C-Max doesn’t seem as complete in terms of quality. Nonetheless this vehicle assures the basics with its dual front, side, and ABS air bags.
