so should things like lambo and ferrari and not forgetting the bugatti be entered into this if they let mpv's ?
if you look over the years the cars that have won actually done somthing diffrent to every other car !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/quote]
Go on enlighten me, whats a Renault 9 done thats been different to every other car? Been more unreliable? More ugly? Quicker to rust? At the end of the day, when given the average family budget or however they work it out, the S Max is obviously the best all round car in the opinion of Autocar magazine. And these people know what they are talking about. Yes there may be cars that handle better, or go quicker, or have better spec, but they obviously fall short in other areas like high price or big deppreciation, whatever. When you compare them all together and weigh up the pros and the cons, the S Max must have more plus points to it than the rest. Its not saying its the perfect car because theres no such thing, but that generally its the most favourable compared to the rest.
And an MPV it might well be, but they are'nt the crappy boxes on wheels they used to be. Nowadays cars like the S Max will handle as good as a saloon/hatchback, are just as nice to drive, and are certainly as good to look at as a normal car. If the opportunity arose where i had enough money to walk into Ford today, and buy any car i wanted, the 2.5 Titanium S Max is one of the 3 cars i would consider, the other 2 being an ST220 and a Focus ST. Its got all the spec, is pretty damn quick for its size (and compared to most normal saloon/hatchbacks), and i reckon is just as nice to look at as the other 2. My car doesnt even compare, so yes i would definatley swap my car for one, any day of the week.
And theres a bit of a difference between a Buggatti Veyron/Lamborghini/Ferrari whatever, and everyday cars like the Mondeo/Focus/S Max. I can hardly see anyone doing the weekly shop in a Veyron ffs.
