Used Ford S-Max I (2006-15). We recommend the 2.0 TDCi / 140 hp diesel engine


The most popular engine is the PSA 2.0 TDCi / 140 HP diesel engine – durable, economical and offers good dynamics. Unfortunately, most of them have high mileage and require additional investment.

On the other hand, the small diesel 1.6 (also PSA) is also not a bad engine, but the lack of power makes itself felt quickly. There is also a 1.8 TDCi version (by Ford), but it is a dangerous car – especially today. 2.0 / 145 HP (the design base comes from Mazda) will be a good choice among gasoline engines. Yes, this engine burns a lot, but it turns out to be durable. And the price? S-Maxs in good condition can be found for 18-20 thousand. zlotys. There are also more expensive ones, but for example they often have an EcoBoost gasoline engine (1.6 or 2.0), which struggles with several serious and expensive problems to fix.

Recommended engines: 2.0, 2.5T, 2.0 TDCi

Advantage

Durable and economical 2.0 TDCi diesel, very spacious interior, comfortable seats, large selection of affordable parts.

Minuses

The possibility of rust, gasoline – either consumes oil or is not very powerful, many pimped cars.
