Ford S-Max Sport
Ford S-Max Sport Ford S-Max Sport
Regardless of the model, the Ford version of the Sport version means the richest package bundle. S-MAX is no exception. It does not make sense to list all the components of comfort and safety. Everything is provided here, from beautiful profiled seats to blind sensors in exterior mirrors.
Another filling is much more interesting: a 240-hp engine, lowered suspension, large wheels with low-profile tires. Why are they for a big family car? Not only this one, but any other representative of the S-MAX range can push in traffic jams, drive to the airport, take children to school. Chasing a charged minivan with youth hot hatchbacks is not solid. And it's useless, frankly.
Now imagine a long road in a car loaded from the heart. Here it is, the element of S-MAX. The same case when there is no excess power, and good handling inspires confidence.

With a full cabin and trunk, Sport remains a best-selling and easy-to-drive machine. On the hills it doesn’t turn sour, when overtaking it doesn’t cause alarm on the topic “I’ll make it in time, I will not make it in time”, during the maneuvers it almost does not require looking back at full load. Such a "car" for traveling with the whole family is good not only on foreign autobahns, but also here. With the only limitation: if you do not want to survive the frightening dance of a minivan on our undulating highways, you should forget about the “comfort” mode in the adjustable suspension settings once and for all. It is better to limit the selection with the “normal” and “sport” buttons.
But how to move out of the asphalt? Low-profile wheels and reduced ground clearance the scope of the minivan is almost unlimited. The main thing is not to demand too much from him. Take a look at the splash photo: there’s not even a hint of any road in the frame. S-MAX, of course, is not an all-terrain vehicle, but where our ordinary passenger car will go, our “athlete” will crawl. In such a popular discipline, “cross-country” asphalt, in fact, the car unexpectedly turned out to be a solid good guy.
The second row of seats - full three places. Another row, for the sixth and seventh passengers, in our case is difficult to increase the capacity of the trunk

Where is the catch - maybe the fuel consumption is high? With a two-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and automatic transmission, a good appetite would not be a surprise. Well, here are the indicators in the "highway" mode: from 9 to 10.2 liters per hundred, depending on load, road and speed. On average 9.6 l / 100 km. The route included a running section of Novorizhskoye Shosse, Minku from Vyazma to Moscow, where you won’t especially accelerate, and a deserted bridge between the tracks. For comparison: the serial Renault-Sandero overcame the exact same route with a flow rate of 9.2 l / 100 km. But he has 102 hp, and the Ford has 240 forces and a fair load! Another surprise on the same topic is cruise control. Modern automation measures the fuel supply very accurately. So much so that replaying her leg is quite difficult. If you want to save money, turn on the electronic assistant and do not torment yourself.
Of course, the car is imperfect and it has flaws, but they just do not become the leader in European sales in the segment of large minivans. In the case of S-MAX, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. And the modification "Sport" is another confirmation of this.
