Ford’s all-new C-MAX will go on sale in the UK in October, priced from £16,745.
The five-seater and the Grand, a versatile seven-seater, come in a two-series line-up – Zetec and Titanium. Prices start from £16,745 for the C-MAX Zetec and £18,745 for the C-MAX Grand Zetec.
The Grand Zetec with 115PS 1.6-litre TDCi, the anticipated volume seller in the UK, is priced at £19,745 - £750 less than the outgoing equivalent.
The five-seat model will appeal to customers seeking more space than a regular family hatchback, but who do not want to sacrifice sporty design or driving dynamics. On the road prices start from £16,745 for the 1.6-litre petrol Zetec.
Mark Simpson, marketing director, Ford of Britain, said: “When C-MAX was launched in 2003 it preserved all the brand’s most important qualities including style, comfort and driving quality, but added more flexibility and space to the Focus package.
“Since then the market has expanded quite considerably with customers expressing a variety of needs. These are met with the family-friendly seven-seater and the sporty-but-spacious five-seater.”
Standard equipment on all models includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, leather steering wheel, Thatcham category one alarm, DAB radio/CD and Bluetooth with USB connectivity and voice control. Grand C-MAX has powered child-proof locks on the rear dual sliding doors, and rear parking sensors.
