When it comes to Ford Grand C-Max running costs, things are pretty reasonable. Servicing costs are reasonable, and the 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel returns an average of 57.7mpg. The Grand C-Max should be competitive to insure because Ford has added a Thatcham category one alarm as standard.

Ford Grand C-Max emissions are kept low thanks to a range of efficient diesel engines. The greenest Grand C-Max is the 1.6-litre TDCi diesel, emitting 129g/km of CO2 when mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

There's little to say when it comes to Ford Grand C-Max reliability. It's generally excellent, and this should prove to be the case for the Grand too because it uses the same engines and mechanical parts.
