The Ford S-Max is a large MPV produced by the Ford Motor Company for the European market and by Chang'an Ford Automobile Co., Ltd for the Chinese (Mainland) market. Introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the S-Max went on sale alongside the redesigned Galaxy in June 2006. It is intended as a "sporty" alternative to the traditional MPV, and slots between the seven-seater large MPV Galaxy and compact MPV Ford C-Max. The S-Max was voted European Car of the Year 2007 on 13 November 2006 and in the future it will be sold in Japan as a Mazda.

Features

The 7-seater S-Max is the first vehicle to feature Ford's Kinetic Design styling. On S-Max, Kinetic Design includes angular headlights, twin trapezoidal grilles, and large wheelarches.

One major selling point of the S-Max is its "FoldFlatSystem". This design allows the second and third-row seats to fold flat into the floor.

S-Max in Titanium edition

There are three derivatives of the S-Max; Edge, Zetec, and the high-end Titanium. Ford have stated that around fifty per cent of all S-Max buyers choose Titanium specification. In February 2008, Ford announced that the S-Max will be made available with a new Titanium S series trim. This model aims to add an even more 'sporty character' than the current Titanium series.

In March 2008, a powerful 2.2 175PS TDCi common-rail diesel will be added to Titanium series and will deliver accleration from 0-60 mph in 9.0 seconds.
