Ford S-MAX Vignale

Ford has extended its desirable Vignale trim package into top versions of its sporting S-MAX family MPV model. If you'd normally buy an executive saloon or estate but need space for a family, it could be a tempting package. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.

Ten Second Review

Just how far can the appeal of family MPV models be extended up-market? That's the question posed by the car we're looking at here, Ford's S-MAX Vignale. The S-MAX we know about: it's the best handling and arguably most desirable large-ish seven-seat family People Carrier out there. But could it also really appeal at a more exalted £35,000 to £40,000 price point if Ford were to up the spec and include a premium customer service package? It's a big ask.

Background

Large MPVs aren't only bought by families full of sticky-fingered children looking for the least expensive way of getting a super-sized brood from A to B. At the top end, they're also purchased as business conveyances. Or by business people who have more than 2.3 kids and who want in their People Carrier all the niceties they're used to enjoying in their usual executive saloon. And the kind of dealer service they might expect to get from a prestige brand. Ford thinks that there are enough of these sort of people around to justify the inclusion in its S-MAX range of this super-luxurious Vignale model. With this top variant, you not only get more luxury than has ever been seen on any MPV before but also what the brand calls 'Ford Vignale Services', a system that will give you your own personal 'Vignale Relationship Manager', there to make your ownership experience just that little bit more pleasant.

Driving Experience

As you'd expect, Ford has chosen the most desirable engines in the S-MAX portfolio for this top Vignale version. That means the top 240PS SCTi 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit and the 2.0-litre TDCi diesel powerplant many will want, an engine most will order in 180PS form. It's this diesel variant that'll give you more options, available in either manual or automatic forms, with the auto also available with intelligent all-wheel drive (I-AWD). This system continually measures how the car's wheels are gripping the road surface every 16 milliseconds; can adjust power delivery to individual wheels in 100 milliseconds; and can send 100 per cent of available engine torque to the rear wheels. Need more grunt? Try Ford's latest bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi diesel, which develops 210 PS and 450Nm of torque, delivered from 2,000rpm. On the road, this car is as good to drive as it in its lesser guises. Ford's clever integral link rear suspension helps enhance the signature car-like, sporty driving dynamics with a configuration that features reduced-weight aluminium components. Additional sound-deadening materials and improved door seals contribute to a very quiet cabin too, creating a level of refinement appropriate to this Vignale model's more exalted price point. If you're graduating into one from a very plush version of the previous generation S-MAX, you'll find that road noise has been reduced by 2.5 decibels in the front and 3 decibels in the rear and Ford claims there's noticeably less wind noise than before.

Design and Build

From the outside, there aren't too many visual cues to distinguish this top Vignale variant from plush 'Titanium' or 'Titanium Sport'-trimmed S-MAX models in the standard range, but if you look closely, a few things will start to stand out. The 18-inch 10x2 spoke alloy wheels with their Premium painted finish for example. The bespoke upper and lower 'Vignale Grilles' at the front are unique too, plus there's 'Dark Chrome' detailing and the door handles have chrome inserts. Inside, Vignale models get leather of course but in this case the hide has been extended to wrap around the instrument panel. The doors get it too - and feature smart 'tuxedo' stitching. Otherwise, the recipe is as it would be in any other second generation S-MAX model. The seats have a 2-3-2 layout, and offer no fewer than 32 seating and load-space combinations, as well as Easy-Fold second and third row seats. The system enables each rear seat to be folded flat from a push-button control panel. The S-MAX also features Easy-Entry second row seats that provide one touch access to third row seating with a new design that tips and slides the seat forward in one action. Storage also includes covered stowage in the instrument panel top, a media storage area incorporated into the centre stack and concealed under-floor stowage behind the third row. There's not a lot of luggage space with the third row raised, but drop the rearmost seats and you have a really wide, conveniently-shaped 700-litre boot.

Market and Model

The Vignale package comes at a premium of around £4,000 over what you'd pay for an identically-engined S-MAX with plush Titanium' trim, so you've really got to want it. Pricing starts at around £33,500 for a manual gearbox 2.0 TDCi 180PS variant, but most customers are going to want the 6-speed Powershift auto transmission - which will push that pricing figure to around £35,000. Another £1,200 will also get you AWD with that package for year-round 4x4 traction. Standard equipment on all S-MAX Vignale variants includes high-grade leather trim, special 18-inch alloy wheels and the brand's latest 'SYNC3' touchcreen infotainment system. Vignale models are sold only at premium 'Ford Store' locations in the UK. At this model's launch, there were 55 of these, enough, says the brand, to ensure that 90% of the population will be with an hour's drive of one. Each of these dealerships will have a dedicated Vignale Lounge area. And owners will be assigned a 'Relationship Manger' who'll be on hand in the dealership and via a hotline to look after their needs. When the time comes for servicing, you'll enjoy a free collection and return service and after every garage visit, your car will get a complementary carwash and premium valet treatment.

Cost of Ownership

The diesel engines both return excellent economy. The most popular S-MAX Vignale is likely to be the 2.0 TDCi 180PS variant and in this one, you'll see 56.5mpg on the combined cycle and 129g/km of carbon dioxide. You'll hit those returns by nearly 10% if you opt for four wheel drive or the Powershift automatic gearbox. At the top of the range, the 210PS Bi-Turbo TDCi manages 51.4mpg with 144g/km emissions. The 240PS petrol engine of course costs quite a bit more to run, posting 35.8mpg and 180g/km. The warranty is a 3 year/60,000 mile deal with Ford Assistance for 1 year, providing roadside assistance in the UK and throughout Europe. To take the hassle out of paying for scheduled work on the car, there are two 'Ford Protect Premium Plans' on offer. The first covers two years and two services, while the other extends to three years and a trio of garage visits. These packages can be passed on to another owner when the car is sold, which might help residual values.

Summary

The key here lies in perception. Think of this as a Ford S-MAX with all the bells and whistles and you might think that around £35,000 is a lot of money to pay for it, however much equipment and premium service might come included as part of the deal. Ford however, wants you to take a different view. You could easily spend the asking sum being demanded here on a high-spec mid-range four cylinder diesel-powered compact executive estate like a BMW 3 Series Touring or an Audi A4 Avant. An S-MAX Vignale, in contrast, offers you so much more and will suit a growing family so much better. Looked at that way, it's a clever choice. And for the right kind of buyer, it's one we'd be inclined to recommend.
