Introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the S-Max is a five-door MPV now in its second generation. The S-Max is intended to be as sporty as a saloon, and as spacious as an MPV. It shows inspiration from the seven-seater large MPV Galaxy, and compact MPV Ford C-Max.
It comes with the same engines as the Galaxy, Mondeo and Edge, which consist of one diesel (in four states of tune) and two petrols. Both the 2.0 TDCi 150 and 180 versions come with either a six speed manual or the Powershift, the latter can also be specced with AWD. The S-Max's safety features include the Intelligent Protection System (IPS), which combines a body structure optimised for strength and crashworthiness with restraint equipment and driver aids that help avoid an accident and features that lessen the likelihood of injuries in an impact, amongst various other security features. This vehicle can accommodate up to seven passengers comfortably, making it the ideal car for big families for daily or long-distance driving.
