In 2006 Ford introduced a new model in its range. An MPV, an MPV, but just a little different than conventional models: the Ford S-Max. The S-Max looks wide, sporty, spacious. And that's exactly the point. These midi-MPV seats seven people, and is also just a sports car.

Ford S-Max

In 2006, Ford announced a new MPV. This is called the Ford S-Max. The car with the optional seven seats should take place where other brands have a midi-MPV in the range: between the full-size MPV and the sedans and station wagons. Ford already has a large full-size MPV: the Ford Galaxy. A smaller variant there is also the Ford C-Max. Since the S-Max intervenes.
Ford S-Max is built on the same platform as the Ford Galaxy. This is the platform of the Ford Mondeo as well as the Volvo S80 used the same soil. But further separating the paths of both models there. It looks at the S-Max to the audience that is looking for a spacious car, with optional seven seats. But those seats are not always necessary and if they are not needed, then it would be able to disappear. The car should not necessarily have the appearance of a large MPV. Perhaps the car also needed partly as company car, and it therefore makes demands on good and sporty road and driving as a passenger, and not hear when an MPV. And this audience is clearly not the public that chooses the space and opportunities offered by the Galaxy.
The Ford S-Max is 4.80 meters long and 1.90 meters wide. It is thus certainly not a small one. The space can actually find it back in again: spacious front seats and the second row of seats. Optionally there to add a third row of seats to. As with many midi-MPV ?? s these seats are ideal for families with children. Children can stay good in the third row, also for the longer rides. An adult passenger is quite a task. Further, the S-Max is the safest car in its class. This is due to the four A-pillars that provide much protection.
