The Paris Motor Show is underway and car manufacturers are ready to show off their latest updates. Ford is introducing the re-designed 2015 C-Max minivan in Europe, hoping to bring the new model to the U.S. later this year. Ford has produced the C-Max since 2003 for the European car market and introduced it in the U.S. in 2012. C-Max has proven to be a success since it attracts environmentally conscious minivan customers as it makes the perfect platform for hybrid and diesel models.
The new version introduces C-Max to Ford’s global design language, with the all-familiar grille and front fascia. The 2015 C-Max also gets upgraded ergonomics and a cabin redesign, including a cleaner and more minimalistic center console. For 2015, Ford got rid excess buttons and incorporates MyFord Touch display, which saves space and makes your Ford easier to use than ever.
The 2015 C-Max also addresses noise and stability updates, which make the new vehicle a pleasure to drive. Ford is also including the company’s latest technology, which features cross-traffic alert, park-out assist, and adaptive cruise control.
The European C-Max is introducing a turbo diesel engine, which promises to deliver 120 horsepower in its 1.5 liter version. Ford is also carrying over the 2.0 turbo diesel and 1.0 three-cylinder EcoBoost, as they offer great efficiency without sacrificing power.
Additionally, the 2015 model comes in a larger version, Grand C-Max. The Grand C-Max seats up to seven passengers and includes all the revisions the smaller model gets. There has been rumors about Ford bringing both versions to the U.S., which will make a nice addition to the small minivan market.
