Ford S-MAX has won the large MPV class in the British Insurance Car Security Awards, for the third year in a row, with the Ford Galaxy yet again named as runner-up.
Supported by security experts Thatcham, the Department for Transport, the Home Office and UK insurers, the awards are the highest official recognition of vehicle security in the UK.
The Ford S-MAX - European Car of the Year 2007 - has received the highest score in its class at the awards every year since its launch in Britain. Once again, the Ford Galaxy was a close second in the category, reaffirming Ford's reputation for excellent active and passive security systems.
Ford of Britain managing director, Nigel Sharp, commented: "This award is both testament to the dedication and expertise of Ford's vehicle security team and a ringing endorsement of Ford MPV security that our customers can trust."
Standard security features on the Ford S-MAX include Thatcham Category 1 alarm, remote-control deadlocks, engine immobiliser and visible VIN numbers.
The Ford S-MAX is available from £19,895, on-the-road.
