Article by Christian Andrei, on September 11, 2013

The first set of details and images has been released of the new Ford S Max Concept that made its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). The latest Ford global design language is used on this new concept car. It features a high mounted grille, stylish Organic LED headlamps and a front bonnet that goes into the sharply raked front screen.

Ford made sure that the design focused on the driver. There’s a high-set instrument panel that cuts back in the centre console and makes it seem more spacious.

It also features a ground-breaking interior roof that adds to that sense of spaciousness. For the instrument panel, Ford utilized high quality materials like the ultra-soft leather wrap.

Meanwhile, the sculptured seats have leather and carbon fibre detailing. It is powered by a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine that was also used on the 2014 Fusion, where it recorded an output of 178 hp and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque.

Barb Samardzich, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe, said that how people applauded the SAV – sport activity vehicle – Concept in 2005 inspired them to build today's S-MAX, which he describes as a “true white space vehicle.”
