The next generation Ford S-Max will be shown at Frankfurt motor show. We have a good insight as how the new family carrier looks like by the unveiling of Ford S-max concept today. The concept is very close to the production vehicle which will be sportier than its predecessor. The front connects to other Ford models and has some similarities to a British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin. The Ford S-max is known as sport family bus for those who want a more conventional family wagon. The 2006 model also won «European car of the year» award. This allowed Ford S-max to attract new customers, those who needed space, a high level of equipment and liked the handling characteristics.
Ford had received some criticism before regarding Ford focus and C-max design which has too many body folds. The S-max has tighter lines and small details are carefully developed. The c
oncept car in rear has three individual seats where the middle folds down into floor. It remains to be seen if these ideas are carried into the production model of the S-Max, which is expected to launch next year. The concept also has «Dual view display» which can simultaneously display two images for driver and front passenger. Ford sync and MyFord touch will have new features along with new apps like spotify to listen and download songs.
S-max will be equipped with 1.5 liter ecoboost gasoline engine. Also to debut in the new car will be «thin seat technology». This system allow you to adjust seating position by applying minimum effort. It also has docking station for the tablet which allows second row passengers to sync their gadgets. According to Ford, the cabin has high quality materials such as soft leather and carbon fiber. Ford S-Max Concept will be shown at Frankfurt Motor but the world premiere will held a week before at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.
