Test Ford S-max 2.0 l TDCi

Ford S-max 2.0 l TDCi

There are high-roof station wagons and vans - and the S-MAX, there are. The model from Cologne conceptual remains an exception in the car market. He combines the length and Variabiltät of vans, but dispenses with the usual height. 'S Galaxy based on it is Sharan - only five centimeters longer, but - as well as the VW eight centimeters higher.

Deeper stacks of Ford S-MAX with narrower window line and higher shoulder since the introduction of the second generation and a half years ago and brings forth from the side it is almost visually in the proximity of a classic station wagon. His inner virtues do not suffer but.

© FordFord S Max time honest, VW-Sharan, seat Alhambra - and Ford Galaxy driver,-when have you really need the interior height of your vehicle? Three equally large, relocatable - and separately folding bucket seats in the rear and two additional seats in the trunk floor recessed offers the only 1.66-meter S Max okay, if tough, lacks the standard volume of the trunk of a small car to the classical representatives of his Guild. Over 2000 litres of luggage volume but also for not quite everyday transport tasks are usually more than enough. And need only right not to hide our test car with 806 kg payload and puts even the class-leading from Wolfsburg in the Pocket.

All five rear seat backs can be from the trunk with a simple push of a button fold over itself (Ford offers Ford S-MAX as a pure five-seater). And also for the access in the last row of a simple handle ranges for seat and back to the front. Back rider find although ample headroom, but the thigh support is conceptually due very low. However, it remains absolutely incomprehensible why it always still failed Ford to build a 90-degree reclining front passenger's backrest for the transport of very long pieces. It is also amazing that no space to accommodate the luggage compartment roller blinds was created in a large car. For the Ford engineers pride but, despite the Siebensitzigkeit to have a full spare tire in the trunk.

© FordFord Ford S MAX is known for its dynamic chassis and so the Ford S-MAX is marketed like Sportvan (flat). The roll angle of the vans is within satisfactory limits. So is the Cologne with a very direct steering, which addresses directly from the core out. The dual-clutch transmission switches very gentle. The S-mode increases the speed level of 180 HP diesel to 500 revolutions per minute and of course also continues to rotate off the course. It is unusual for a dual clutch transmission that can intervene only manually via paddle shifters, but do not have the selector lever. Not quite the dynamic claim fits the automatic stop start System. She has a little slow when it comes to the restart. On paper, the Ford S-max for shines with a standard consumption of 5.0 liters per 100 km and the efficiency class A. respect.

© FordFord S Max absolute praise earn the perfectly positioned head restraints. Additional amenities (partly accessories) are a heated steering wheel, aux-, two USB ports and a total of four 12-volt connections and an SD card slot and (fortunately) still a CD player. For the middle row, there is even a 230-volt power outlet in the center console, which however require an adapter.
