S-MAX Concept Revealed Before Frankfurt Motor Show
Ford have unveiled their S-Max Concept in an exclusive preview in Germany, just a week before the Frankfurt Motor Show. Making its global debut at the show, it shows what the production version of the second generation S-Max could look like.
Since 2005 Ford have produced the MPV S-Max in a sector that has increased by a third in Europe. As an alternative to German brands, the car has appealed to families and this new concept now looks even more sportier, dynamic and stylish.
“When Ford unveiled the Sport Activity Vehicle Concept in 2005 it immediately captured the public’s imagination and inspired us to produce today’s S-MAX, a true white space vehicle,” said Barb Samardzich, Product Development vice president, Ford of Europe. “Our new S-MAX Concept takes that unique appeal to the next level with Ford’s latest design and technology innovations for a new generation.”
With the new front grille, as seen on recent models and also looking very similar to the Aston Martin, the S-Max Concept has what Executive Design Director of Ford of Europe, Martin Smith described as having a ‘dart-like’ profile.
With a panoramic glass roof, distinctive, swept back organic LED headlamps and dashes of carbon fibre detailing in the cabin, the premium quality car will definitely turn heads when the public see it next month in Frankfurt.
Sculpted seats, with the option of the middle seat being folded into the floor of the car, makes the S-MAX extremely flexible and is so versatile that seven people can be transported.
Technology in the S-Max Concept comes in the form of the Ford SYNC system which can monitor your heart rate and even your glucose levels.
The car will be powered by the UK-built, 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine, which has now won Engine of the Year for the second consecutive year.
