Ford has revealed the new Ford SMAX, a stylish revamp of the trend-setting seven-seat sports activity vehicle.
The new S-MAX will be available across Europe from next year. Like its predecessor it will offer style, driving pleasure and advanced features without sacrificing space, flexibility and fuel efficiency.
Stephen Odell, Ford executive vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa said: "S-MAX struck a chord with customers all over Europe people who need space and practicality but who could never picture themselves in a typical family hauler. The all-new S-MAX takes this no-compromise ethos to new levels with a stunning design, cool technology and dynamic driving experience."
The new S-MAX will debut Ford Adaptive Steering technology, which makes the car more responsive. Intelligent all-wheel drive and a range of sophisticated powertrains, including a new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, will also improve the driving experience in this latest model.
S-MAX will be the first Ford globally to feature Ford Dynamic LED Headlamps with Glare-Free Highbeam to improve vision at night without dazzling oncoming traffic. Ford's Pre-Collision Assist technology will also feature on the S-MAX and help prevent accidents even at motorway speeds.
From an Alpine ski trip to the school run, the all-new S-MAX will enable seven people to travel in comfort with 32 seating and load-space combinations, as well as easy-folding second and third row seats for the first time in its segment.
