The new Ford C-Max (5-seats) and the Grand C-Max (7-seats) are set to go on sale in early 2015.

Based on the Focus platform the C-Max range has been sharpened up receiving the Aston Martin inspired nose with more chiselled front headlamps and elongated fog-lamps, where the rear has been smoothed out to give the compact MPV a more contemporary feel.

The interior is brought in line with the new simplified Focus layout with an 8-inch touchscreen interface including the option of SYNC2 which allows for voice commands. There is a new USB connection point for integrating and charging mobile devices.  You can also add the premium sound system that comprises 10 Sony speakers, including a subwoofer.

The C-Max engine line-up will add the 1.5-litre petrol EcoBoost and a new 1.5-litre 120PS TDCi diesel engine to replace the 1.6-litre diesel. The 1.0-litre petrol (100PS and 125PS) EcoBoost unit will be retained. There will also be an improved 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine with emissions lowered by up to 20 per cent.

There is new and revised tech options including Active Park Assist which will park the C-MAX at the touch of a button – locating both parallel and Perpendicular Parking spaces – and auto steering into the space with only minimal input from the driver – it can also steer you out of a tight space. The Active City Stop system has been revised and will now operate at speeds up to 31 mph.
