Ford’s all-new C-Max compact MPV will start from £16,745 with a 1.6 litre 104bhp petrol engine, while the larger Grand C-Max starts at £18,745 when the models go on sale in October.

Only two trim-levels will be available; Zetec and Titanium. Entry-level Zetec model comes with alloy wheels, air conditioning, leather steering wheel, Thatcham category 1 alarm, DAB radio/CD and Bluetooth w/USB connectivity and voice control. Grand C-MAX has powered child-proof locks on the rear dual sliding doors, and rear parking sensors.

Titanium adds rain-sensing front wipers and dusk-sensing headlamps, dual electronic automatic temperature control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, hill start assist, keyless start, cruise control w/speed limiter, premium Sony audio, and tyre pressure warning light. The Grand C-MAX has electric folding mirrors.

Other petrol engines in the C-Max range include a 123bhp 1.6 and an all-new 4-cylinder 148bhp 1.6 Ecoboost engine linked to a new six-speed manual gearbox. This costs from £19,745 in Titanium trim.

Diesel engines available in the C-Max include an 113bhp 1.6 and a 138bhp 2.0, which is also available with Ford’s 6 speed dual-clutch gearbox.

All of the engines available in the C-Max are available in its larger sister model, with the exception of the entry-level 104bhp 1.6 petrol unit.

Mark Simpson, marketing director, Ford of Britain said: "When C-MAX was launched in 2003 it preserved the entire brand's most important qualities including style, comfort and driving quality, but added more flexibility and space to the Focus package."

"Since then the market has expanded quite considerably with customers expressing a variety of needs. These are met with the family-friendly seven-seater and the sporty-but-spacious five-seater. The new Ford C-MAX and Grand C-MAX are priced to offer customers best value for money whilst still introducing many exciting new technologies which will feature on the all-new Focus due next year," he said.
