Five seats are good, and seven are better: today, almost every second European, choosing a minivan, prefers the version with three rows of seats. The possibility of transporting six passengers worries our buyer to a much lesser extent. But all one way or another converge in one thing - the family wagon stock of space just does not hurt.

The owners of the previous C-MAX complained about the smallness of this margin when Ford marketers found out the pros and cons of the model from them. Now the volume is completely in order: the Grand C-MAX is significantly superior to its predecessor in all dimensions. True, it is not entirely right to consider him the successor: in the new Ford European lineup there is also the usual C-MAX, a direct descendant of the 5-seater compact van.

It is positioned closer to the sporty-tuned hatchback, and the 7-seater Grand acts as the most practical station wagon. However, the third row of seats - a position from the list of additional equipment, was left to the discretion of the buyer. For most, enhanced cargo capabilities are still more important.

A key feature of the 7-seat version - a scheme with sliding rear doors - gives rise to an analogy with the Mazda5. However, you should not look for any kindred ties here: the Grand C-MAX is based on the new global Ford platform. It also formed the basis of the third generation Focus and in the future will serve to develop a dozen other brand new products. At the same time, the use of the new platform facilitates the introduction of a series of advanced technological solutions such as automatic parking systems and monitoring of blind spots.

A wide doorway allows easy access to the spacious lounge. Here you can see another innovation - the original transformation scheme of the second row. The seats are stacked one into another in such a way that in a 6-seater configuration a free passage to the "gallery" opens. This is really very convenient: in order to take places in the last row, you do not need to fold back the backs of the second row once again, remove, say, child seats from them. The same folding scheme in the variant with five seats makes it possible to more comfortably accommodate two passengers in the absence of a third. Well, having folded both back rows, we get a flat platform and a huge cargo volume, which allows us to consider the compact van as a van. If we consider the "bus" case, then it does not look extreme at all: the sixth and seventh passengers will not feel any particular discomfort, even if they are above average growth. The conditions here are more than acceptable for traveling over short distances.

The gasoline engines with which the Grand C-MAX will be sold in Russia are represented by three variations of the 1.6-liter unit. The most modest of them is the well-known and slightly modified 125-horsepower Duratec, paired with a 5-speed “mechanics”. The other two, rated at 150 and 180 hp - from the new EcoBoost family - combine direct injection with turbocharging. The manual gearbox with which they are mated is also a new, 6-speed.

There is only one diesel version for our market - with a modernized two-liter engine that develops 140 hp. and aggregated with a PowerShift robotic gearbox equipped with two clutches. This version became the object of our first acquaintance with the car - there were no gas modifications on the European test drive.

Nothing annoying to the ears, negligible vibration level - the diesel engine gets along well with the “robot”, by common efforts they provide a pleasant dynamic acceleration from low, about 1600, revolutions. Acoustic comfort is commendably high - the isolation of the cabin from noise is impressive.

Subjective sensations are quite consistent with the stated figure: the noise level in the cabin is reduced by 2 dB compared with the same indicator of its predecessor. The sound of the engine is clearly audible only with intense acceleration, the rest of the time it is perceived as an unobtrusive background. Even the windshield covered with a special acoustic layer is involved in the fight for silence.

The suspension is tuned with a clear focus on ride. I remember that the former C-MAX willingly supported an active ride. Surely, the new one in the regular version inherited this property, but the Grand C-MAX is already different - soft and even, perhaps, somewhat rolls. You can, of course, with sufficient skills to screech tires on a winding path, is it only necessary? There is still little pleasure from this: the banks are growing rapidly, the withdrawals too, and the control accuracy is noticeably reduced. And the engine is not very ready to adapt to such modes, even if you switch to manual gear shifting. It is much more pleasant to maintain a relatively calm pace, which, in fact, is spelled out for a large family wagon. By the way, big doesn't mean bulky: Grand C-MAX, for example, is only a centimeter longer than the Nissan Almera sedan and a centimeter shorter than the Kia Cerato.
