The new Focus has already been given the same treatment, with the two MPVs now getting updated features, inside and out. Here are the details:
New Ford C-Max
Based on the Focus’ structure, the new C-Max has been given a similar look to that of its family hatch sibling. This brings a new chrome trapezoidal grille, newly sculpted headlights ad cleaner lines on the bonnet.
The C-Max’s taillights have also been redesigned and the bootlid has a smoother profile. Ford has given customers the option of two new colours: Caribou (brown-grey tint) and Red Rush seen here in these images.
An updated interior sees the addition of an eight-inch touchscreen unit that controls the infotainment features and clears up the dash area; SYNC 2 is also integrated into the system. More storage space is available thanks to some redesigning in the cabin.
The Focus’ engine range is available with the new C-Max, including Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost unit that offers sub-100g/km levels of CO2. The new C-Max will be on sale from early 2015 and the Grand C-Max receives the same updates.
New Ford S-Max
Ford’s flagship seven-seater has also taken cues form the company’s recently updated models, with updated front and back-ends; however, it will be based on the upcoming Mondeo architecture.
The key feature of the S-Max’s refresh is its added practical elements that boast power-folding seats in the second and third rows – a segment first. Passengers in the second row benefit from newly integrated side airbags.
Comfort is also a massive factor for the new S-Max; the steering column can now be electronically adjusted and customers can choose to have heated and cooled multi-contour massage seats. The Kuga’s hands-free tailgate makes onto the updated MPV.
Safety features such as a new-generation active parking system now allows the car to aid you in perpendicular parking, while lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and automatic braking are also on the options list.
The new Ford S-Max goes on sale next summer following its debut at October’s Paris motor show.
