Ford’s new C-Max has evolved to offer MPV customers the full flexibility of a seven-seater with twin rear sliding doors. And the five-seat C-Max should appeal to those customers seeking sporty styling coupled with extra space. New Ford C-Max entry level prices start here in Ireland at €23,995.
And as a special launch offer and for a limited time only, Ford tells us that all C-Max Titanium models will come with Active Park Assist as standard. This is an option that normally costs €750.
The new Ford C-Max has been fully redesigned inside and out and is kitted out with a range of improved, more fuel efficient, low CO2 engines.
In addition to the 5-seater C-Max, a new 7-seater Grand C-Max version has been added to the line-up providing even more flexibility and choice for Irish motorists.
Developed as part of the company’s ambitious global C-segment strategy and with a bold and dynamic two-model line-up, the C-Max family brings new levels of style and desirability to the compact Multi-Activity Vehicle (MAV ) market.
The new C-Max will be available in two series in Ireland: ACTIV and Titanium with three diesel engine options available in each series.
The entry level specification details for each includes new 16” 5x2 alloy wheels; front fogs; rear privacy glass; heated windscreen; Bluetooth voice control; air conditioning; electric front windows; remote radio CD; and leather steering wheel and gear knob. Rear parking sensors and foldable mirrors; power child locks; and electric rear windows on Grand C-Max only.
There are also a number of recent new technology optional extras that are available on the new C-Max. These include Active Park Assist; Power Operated Tailgate; Blind Spot Information System; and rear view camera.
The engine choice includes a choice of three petrol units including the efficient new 1.6-litre Ford Ecoboost direct-injection petrol engine and two completely updated 1.6- and 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel engines.
The four-cylinder 150 bhp Ecoboost petrol powertrain achieves CO2 emissions of 154g/km and combined fuel consumption of 42.8mpg. Compared with the 145 bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine in the previous model, this cuts emissions and improves fuel economy by around 20 per cent.
Meanwhile, the expected big selling Grand C-Max with the updated 1.6-litre TDCi achieves class leading emissions of 129g/km CO2 and a combined fuel economy of 57.7 mpg. Meanwhile the C-Max 2.0 Titanium TDCi 140 PS six-speed manual delivers an impressive 55.4 mpg combined, and average CO2 emissions of 134g/km.
