What do you do when you know in your head this makes perfect sense for your family but doesn't touch your heart. There is no way a ford deal could get nearly twenty grand from my grasp for this car. Maybe see how I feel about a year old one, when it's closer to 10K.

If the government gets its way and turns off the FM signal, a DAB radio will be a highly desirable option in a few years. Well done Ford for making it standard

I agree on that, the other day I bought a perfectly functional DAB portable radio in Tesco for £14.99 so the chipset required is hardly significant in the cost of a car.

I have a new car on order but there was/is no option for DAB like many others. Again Its great Ford have put DAB/Bluetooth in from base, but more than overwhelmed with Ford I am more underwhelmed with the others that don't, in car terms its £50 (tops!) of extra chips in the design. I would gladly forgo a few cup holders or bits of fake chrome for something useful like that.

I also totally agree, now that its illegal to use a phone in a car unless its hands free, bluetooth should be made standard, it is a safety feature and perhaps cars could lose points on Euro NCAP for not having it.

DAB is something that will be made standard shortly when not if the analogue signal is turned off, Ford should be applauded for making it so, lets just hope they roll it out in all models in the very near future, once one starts the rest of the sheep will follow, and as stated the cost is negligible.

Saw a badgeless one last month, obviously testing. It looked awful and awkward.

pass vw golf please....

For a newly released Ford those list prices and equipment levels sound very reasonable, looks like the entry level 104bhp 1.6 should suit most people fine. After discounts I should imagine pricing down to the £14k mark. Look forward to reading the reviews once it hits UK roads.

so based on those pics does it have sliding doors or not? I can't imagine they would engineer sliding doors only for the larger version?

6 September 2010

7 seat 'grand c-max' has rear sliding doors, 5-seat version does not. Wouldn't be any point having them on the small one.
