BRENTWOOD – The C-MAX Titanium has been named as the UK's best value Multi-Purpose Vehicle in the first annual awards presented by Parkers, a leading car-buying website.
In deciding its 2011 New Car Award winners, Parkers combined list price with running costs, including depreciation, showroom and road tax, servicing and fuel consumption.
Kieren Puffet, Parkers editor, said: "The C-Max 1.6 TDCi Titanium won because it is great to drive, comes with a quality interior and with plenty of space.
"When it comes to value, the C-MAX scores highly. The 1.6-litre diesel provides great performance and 61mpg combined fuel economy means trips to the fuel pump aren't frequent.
"With competitive servicing costs, low insurance premiums and keen road tax prices the C-Max Titanium makes the car buyer's cash go furthest."
Parkers also liked the C-MAX's Easy Fuel capless refuelling system, which is standard on most Fords and prevents accidentally filling up with the wrong fuel.
