The Ford S-MAX Vignale is the luxury variant of one of the very best MPVs currently available. Versatile, well-equipped, spacious and very plush, the S-MAX Vignale is the type of car that the whole family will want to spend time in.
This particular S-MAX iteration features a bespoke Vignale body kit, which includes chrome finishes and polished aluminium flourishes, as well as custom-made 18-inch alloy wheels. A number of body-coloured fixtures adorn the car too, such as power-folding, auto-dimming and heated door mirrors. All models feature adaptive lighting, including glare-free high-beam LED headlamps and fog lights, providing the driver with excellent visibility in a range of conditions.
The car’s rather sumptuous interior features very supportive, super-soft leather seats. Front positions are heated and provide five-way electric adjustability. The front two rows comfortably accommodate five adults, while the rearmost row is perfect for younger travellers. The middle row not only reclines, it slides forwards and backwards, making access easy for passengers. With rearmost seats folded, the S-MAX Vignale’s boot space expands from 285 litres to 700 litres. With all but the front row of seats dropped, cargo capacity increases to a decidedly commodious 2,020 litres.
The fun-to-drive S-MAX Vignale is typically fitted with a 2.0-litre diesel engine. This 178bhp unit returns as much as 56.5mpg, while producing CO2 emissions as low as 129g/km, making it the most fuel-efficient option available for the S-MAX. Models installed with a 2.0-litre 238bhp petrol engine deliver optimal performance levels: 344Nm of torque and 0-60mph in just over eight seconds.
Technology and safety
An eight-inch touchscreen takes pride of place on the vehicle’s leather-finished dashboard, providing access to a SYNC 3 infotainment system, which includes satellite navigation. The cabin has been constructed using sound-dampening materials, allowing everyone on board to fully enjoy audio output from the car’s nine-speaker Sony stereo.
Awarded a maximum five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP, the vehicle is fitted with a wide range of driving aids and passive safety features. For instance, front and rear sensors and a reversing camera ensure that parking is a cinch. Electronic Stability Programme, Anti-lock Braking System, multiple airbags and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points are just some of the many other protective features included.
