Just ordered a Grand C-Max 1.6 diesel 115 bhp. We stumbled on it a bit by accident. For our family of four, we were set on the VW Touran. On the way to test drive it, we stopped by a Ford dealership and were really impressed with the Grand C-Max. It had the room that I need for work and we fell in love with it. Test drove the Touran and was extremely unimpressed. It is a glorified cargo van. The C-Max drove much better.
We test drove the 2.0 diesel 136 bhp and did not feel that it was much of an upgrade. Yes, a bit morepower, but not much more of a sensation of quickness. Maybe as a life-long petrol driver, I'm not used to the diesel drive.
The 3 boys can't wait until April when it will arrive. The wife is more patient, yet very enthusiastic!
