One of the advantages of the first-generation Grand C-Max is its high-driving position which delivers excellent forward visibility. The car has also got a dash-mounted gearshift and central console and although the layout remains the same as the previous five-door C-Max the materials are of a higher quality, mirroring those used in luxury German brands.

Ford Grand C-Max comfort is very good. Road, wind and engine noise are hardly audible, which makes the cabin a cozy place. There is lots of head- and legroom for the driver and front seat passenger. On long journeys the seats proved to be comfortable. They are well cushioned and have good side supports. The ride is well tailored for family driving, making the Grand C-Max an assured motorway cruiser.
