Ford has announced a series of enhancements to S-Max and Galaxy, including better seating and WiFi services.
Driver and front passenger seats available on S-Max can now be adjusted in 18 ways for maximum support, while FordPass Connect on-board modem technology is also now offered for both the S‑Max and Galaxy for the first time.
FordPass Connect turns the models into mobile WiFi hotspots with connectivity for up to 10 devices, and enables new Local Hazard Information that can inform the driver of hazardous situations in the road ahead before they become visible to the driver or vehicle sensors.
“The invaluable connectivity delivered by our FordPass Connect technology helps make life simpler and less stressful for S‑Max and Galaxy customers whether they’re driving, working or relaxing,” said Roelant de Waard, Ford’s European marketing, sales and service vice president.
Ford’s S-Max and Galaxy models were last year enhanced to deliver even greater fuel efficiency, performance, with Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine offered in 150PS and 190PS outputs an advanced eight-speed automatic transmission option; and available driver assistance technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go functionality.
Enhanced S-Max and Galaxy models also feature a revised upper front facia, with chrome upper grille and foglamp surrounds, a honeycomb upper grille with a black surround, and black foglamp surrounds for Ford performance-inspired S-Max ST‑Line models.
In addition to enabling WiFi hotspot capability, optional FordPass Connect technology allows a range of features via the FordPass mobile app, including vehicle locator; vehicle status that checks fuel levels, alarm status, oil life and more; and remote door lock unlock.
The enhanced Ford S-MAX and Galaxy models are available to order now from £30,490 and £33,210 respectively.
