Hi all,

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!

Congrats my fellow-countryman! As far as prefering the C-max over a Touran: well duh...! No, seriously, good choice. I've not yet testdriven the new C-max (not wanting to be temted..yet) but if it's anything like his predecessor, you should be in for a treat. Maybe the difference in the 1.6 and 2.0 diesel isn't that obvious anymore due to the 6 speed gearbox, now in both enginetypes. But in the MkI, in my opinion, there was certainly a noticable difference, enough for me to put down a few euro's more and go for the 2.0l . Anyway, best of luck with your new car.
