As we announced here, the 2015 Ford C-Max Facelift and Grand C-Max Facelift made their debut today ahead of 2014 Paris Motor Show. As you can see from the photos, both models feature the new inverted trapezoidal grille seen also on the new S-Max, redesigned front headlights, elongated fog-lamps and new taillamps.
Also new for the 2015 are the Red Rush and Caribou exterior colours. The interior was redesigned too and arrives with fewer controls and switches, a new black satin trim and chrome detailing. According to Ford, the air-conditioning controls now feature buttons that are easier to recognize and can be easily distinguished from each other.
The redesigned centre console offers increased space and arrives with a sliding, integrated armrest. Moreover, higher quality trims are offered across the entire range as well as a heated steering wheel, door-sill scuff plates and load-net fitting points located behind the first and second row seats.
The new C-Max family comes equipped with the SYNC 2 voice-activated connectivity system that features an 8-inch colour touchscreen as well as voice control for hands-free operation of audio, navigation, climate control and mobile phone functions.
Under the hood, we find a new 1.5-liter TDCi diesel engine delivering 120 hp that replaces the 1.6-liter diesel. A revised 2.0-liter diesel is offered too and this engine is expected to improve CO2 emissions by 20% while power increases by 4%.
Ford will continue to offer the 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that produces 100 hp and 125 hp. EcoBoost petrol engines and 2.0-liter diesels are available as standard with Ford’s Auto-Start-Stop technology.
