Ford Gets MAXimized for Geneva 2010

Unlike other manufacturers that have already announced world premieres and innovative concepts for this year’s Geneva Auto Show, American manufacturer Ford will keep a low profile. Ford announced it’s new C-car will make its European debut at the show, alongside final versions of C-MAX and Grand C-MAX which go on sale this year.

Moreover, the carmaker prepared further product enhancements for the Ford Kuga and Mondeo and more options revealed for the new S-MAX and Galaxy.

The Ford C-MAX range will introduce two versions to the compact Multi-Activity Vehicle (MAV) market, namely a five-seat C-MAX or a seven-seat Grand C-MAX. According to Ford, the interior of the five-seat C-MAX will be revealed for the first time at Geneva next month.

The cockpit will represent the next generation of Ford’s human machine interface (HMI) system. The key elements of this technology are two five-way toggle switches on the steering wheel, which control
two main vehicle displays: one in the instrument cluster and the second mounted in a high position in the centre console.

The Ford C-MAX range will be offered in a choice of 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine and updated 1.6- and 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engines.

“The launch of the new C-MAX range is highly significant, and shows customers worldwide that they can expect some truly exciting designs as we roll out our new global range of medium cars,”
said John Fleming. “The new C-MAX is just the start – with the next-generation Focus coming quickly after, we look forward to revealing more of the story in the very near future.”
