Ford Unveils S-Max Concept [Photo Gallery]
As you might have already noticed, the S-Max concept is actually the automaker’s familiar S-Max minivan (an Europe-only vehicle) with Ford’s new global design language that has been already applied across its entire lineup. Looking more like an enlarged Focus hatchback, the S-Max concept is powered by the company’s new turbocharged 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-potter with twin-independent variable camshaft timing.
The interior can seat up to seven people and comes with high quality materials such as ultra-soft leather wrap for the instrument panel and leather and carbon fiber detailing for the seats. What’s more, the S-Max is fitted with ECG Heart Rate Monitoring Seat that records the driver’s heart rate and provides data in case of emergency via the SYNC connectivity system.

"The new S-MAX Concept is not only a unique proposition in terms of its uncompromised combination of styling, versatility and driver-focused dynamics, but also through its innovative technologies delivering superior safety, well-being and seamlessly integrated connectivity," said Pim van der Jagt, executive technical leader, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering. "With the S-MAX Concept we aimed to demonstrate just how wide a scope of technologies Ford is preparing to deliver for customers in future generations of vehicles."
