Ford Focus C-MAX

With its sleek, profile, contemporary style, flexible and spacious interior and confident dynamic capabilities, the all-new Ford Focus C-MAX is poised to change customer expectations of what a family car can be. Ford Focus C-MAX is a new addition to the Focus range, which brings greater space, flexibility and comfort, without compromising the acclaimed Focus driving quality.

Focus C-MAX offers unique rear-seat flexibility and a premium driver and passenger environment, along with impressive storage, space and onboard entertainment choices. Focus C-MAX designers opted not to configure the new car for seven seats to avoid compromising style, interior comfort and driving quality. Instead, Focus C-MAX’s flexibility has been geared to offer ample space for three rear-seat passengers or significantly improved legroom and shoulder room when there are only two.

Focus C-MAX is larger and taller than the other cars in the Focus range, but it is more compact and poised than some other entrants in the segment. A sleek, stylish exterior makes it clear that Focus C-MAX drives more like a car, and its aerodynamic shape has the lowest drag coefficient in its segment. This sleek exterior contributes to Focus C-MAX’s impressively low fuel consumption and low wind noise levels.

Despite being larger and more spacious inside, the body structure of the Focus C-MAX is uncompromised in terms of strength and stiffness. Indeed, body stiffness has long been a key contributor to Focus’ hallmark driving quality, and the extremely rigid body structure of the new Focus C-MAX also forms the foundation for its handling, steering and braking capabilities.
