Ford have been very clever in their use of space and included several stowage compartments along with enhanced rear seats that can fold and split in two parts. The interior is surprisingly roomy and has an adjustable load floor that can be fitted in three alternative positions which is ideal when you don’t want to pile things on top of each other. We can give you live demonstrations of this in our car showroom in Bridgend. It is worth the trip just to see the flip-up cushion that allows the seatbacks to fold completely flat for that added bit of necessary room.

This new 2018 model also includes Electronic Stability Control that will monitor your vehicle’s progress and applies a braking pulse to individual wheels if it feels it losing traction on the road and help stabilise it.
