Ford bagged two titles at the recent Fleet News awards with its MPV’s proving popular once again.
The Ford C-Max scooped the first award in the ‘New Company Car of the Year’ category while its larger sibling, the Grand C-Max, claimed the ‘Best People Carrier’ prize at the ceremony in London.
Cars were judged on a wide range of criteria with one eye on their benefits to business car users including depreciation, fuel, servicing, maintenance and repairs to name a few.
It was the Ford Grand C-Max that benefitted from these criteria with the seven-seat Grand C-Max seeing off competition from the likes of the Chevrolet Orlando and the Seat Alhambra.
The C-Max – a five seat MPV – was decided on by the readers of Fleet News with the models practicality and drive proving decisive in its achievement.
Fleet News’ judges said:
"The new Ford C-Max and Grand C-Max stand out thanks to clever and flexible seating and sliding rear passenger doors in a highly competitive sector with a range of new entrants."
Both of Ford’s triumphant MPVs have been on sale since November of last year and both were boosted by a five star safety rating from Euro NCAP – the maximum rating from the safety institution.
