Ford C-Max / Grand C-Max Overview
Family life’s always…hectic. So the Ford C-MAX is designed to make every journey…effortless.
The five-seat C-MAX or the seven-seat Grand C-MAX: whichever you choose you’ll enjoy a whole new level of flexibility, practicality and efficiency.
Add rewarding performance, responsive handling and a range of remarkable technologies and you may well have found your perfect car.
C-MAX: COMFORTABLE SPACE FOR FIVE
A range of advanced, time-and effort-saving technologies, cleverly packaged into a flexible and spacious family car.
Available with a hands-free tailgate that opens and closes with a simple wave of your foot under the rear bumper: ideal when you’ve got your hands full.
A tailgate that opens and closes automatically
The hands-free Liftgate is invaluable if you have your hands full. As long as you have your KeyFree key-fob with you (in your bag or pocket) simply wave your foot under the rear bumper of the car and the tailgate will automatically open or close for you.
Go hands-free with SYNC 3
SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the 8” Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
Two advanced systems to help you stay in lane
Lane Keeping Aid will deliver steering assistance if it detects that you are about to change lane without signalling. Additionally Lane Keeping Alert alerts you by vibrating the steering wheel and showing a visual signal in the cluster display if the system detects that your vehicle is unintentionally drifting toward the lane markings.
Cruise control that can adapt automatically
With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow the car to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
Get the most out of your engine
The revolutionary 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 100PS and 125PS with CO2emissions of just 117g/km for the C-MAX and 119g/km for the Grand C-MAX. That’s the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6L engine, only with better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Named International Engine of the Year for three years in succession.
An all-new diesel option
The 1.5L TDCi is an entirely new engine. Based on the 1.6L TDCi, it offers the same power on entry level with 95PS, but increased power at 120PS (from 115PS). It maximises fuel economy and minimises emissions, too. This engine is currently available with a 6-speed manual gearbox and as a 120PS with automatic transmission.
Low emission diesel power
The 2.0 litre diesel engine is also new and is capable of delivering 150PS automatic transmission and 6-speed manual gearbox or 170PS automatic transmission.
A wheel that puts everything to hand
A new three-spoke steering wheel has been ergonomically designed with the driver in mind. Every button and control is at your fingertips and the position of the wheel improves both the usability and visibility of your car’s instrument panel. For your further comfort, why not take the option of a new heated steering wheel?
Worry-free car sharing with MyKey®
Ford MyKey® is an innovative programmable feature that encourages safer driving. MyKey lets you tailor car settings to suit individual users. So, if you’re lending the car to someone else, you can set the maximum speed limit, set a seatbelt reminder and even control the volume of the audio system. This innovative technology is designed to help keep drivers and passengers safe and give you peace of mind
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
*Ford Emergency Assistance operates in over 40 European countries. This feature works when paired with a compatible connected mobile phone that is with you when an airbag is deployed (excludes knee airbags) or a sensor that registers a crash deactivates the fuel pump. Text function and Emergency Assistance not supported by all European languages.
Coordinated safety systems activate in a split-second
The C-MAX and Grand C-MAX are equipped with an advanced Intelligent Protection System (IPS), which coordinates a number of safety systems to protect both you and your passengers. As well as a rigid, impact-absorbing bodyshell, containing advanced high-tensile steels, there’s an array of airbags to shield the car’s occupants. To reduce the chance of injury in the event of a collision, the steering column and pedals are designed to collapse away from the driver, to reduce the chance of injury in the event of an accident.
Helps make city driving safer
Accidents in stop-start or slow moving traffic happen all too frequently (particularly in busy city streets). Active City Stop is designed to help you avoid, or reduce the impact of them. If the system detects the car in front has unexpectedly stopped, and you’re travelling at a speed of under 50 km/h, it automatically applies the brakes.
Ford Grand C-Max
The new 7-seat Grand C-MAX is the perfect combination of innovation, style and flexibility.
Advanced technology, responsive performance and improved sustainability add up to more driving enjoyment. With upgraded levels of comfort and convenience, the stunning new Grand C-MAX is set to take the market by storm. In every sense, and from every angle, the new Grand C-MAX is a next-generation vehicle.
Easy access, all round
With unique, twin sliding rear doors it’s easy for your passengers to get in and out. This intelligent design also prevents the doors banging against other cars, or walls, in tight parking spaces.
