Ford Motor Company today unveiled the stylish new C-MAX and Grand C-MAX with a new sleek exterior design, beautifully crafted interior with improved stowage solutions, and major fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions improvements.
The five-seat C-MAX and seven-seat Grand C-MAX also will offer superior comfort and refinement when they go on sale across Europe in early 2015. The models will introduce advanced technology including Ford’s SYNC 2 voice-activated connectivity system.
The C-MAX family will be equipped for the first time with Ford’s new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol and 105 PS 1.5-litre TDCi ECOnetic diesel engine that is expected to deliver 99 g/km CO2 in the five-seat C-MAX.*
“C-MAX has earned a reputation for providing a balance of great fuel economy, responsive, sporty handling and a flexible, roomy interior package,” said Stephen Odell, Ford executive vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “All powertrains benefit from CO2 improvements without sacrificing any of the car’s great driving dynamics.”
“The new Ford C-MAX family also delivers levels of refinement often found in larger, more upmarket vehicles – including the segment-first Hands-Free Liftgate that only requires a gentle kicking motion to gain access to the boot space.”
Ford first introduced the C-MAX in 2003 and since then has sold more than 1.2 million in Europe. Now in its third generation, C-MAX has accounted for more than 12 per cent of all MAVs sold in Europe so far this year.
