I'm looking for a new petrol c-max myself, but am more interested in the upcoming 1.0 Ecoboost with 125 hp (October?). I've tried that one in a Focus, and liked it far better than the 1.6 115 hp diesel I tried in a C-Max. The 1.0 was both fun and frugal. Very flexible engine. The performance was about the same as my current C-max 1.8 120 hp. I thougt the 1.6 diesel was sluggish on low revs. I'm shure the 1.6 Ecoboost is very nice, but it's more thirsty than some of the competition.
2004 1.8 C-Max Trend/Zetec.
