Paul Beadling, sales manager at Jennings Ford, Riverside Road in Sunderland, said; “We are delighted to be able to offer our customers the new five and seven-seater models, which reflect the differing priorities of the typical customers for each model.

“The five-seat C-MAX adopts a sportier feel with a stylish passenger-car look and boasts a coupe-like, sweeping roofline which falls off to the rear, but retains the traditional C-MAX virtues of roominess and practicality, while the seven-seat Grand C-MAX is equally dynamic in character and presents a more functional appearance which highlights the extra space and versatility provided by the car.”
