Family life is often hectic. With school runs, sports practise and shopping trips to negotiate, you need a vehicle that takes numerous demands in its stride. The new Ford S-MAX fits the bill perfectly, providing a dependable solution for all your motoring needs.
Traditionally, people carriers have sacrificed looks for practicality, but with the Ford S-MAX this hasn’t been necessary. With its sporty, sharp design, it draws envious glances from other road users, while its generous dimensions ensure there’s plenty of room for everyone.
The Ford face is unmistakeable: slim headlights flank a hexagonal grille, and a curved bonnet flows seamlessly up to a wide windscreen, which provides excellent visibility. The gently tapered roofline adds elegance to the profile, and 17-inch alloy wheels complete the look.
Capacity is everything when you have a busy lifestyle, and the Ford S-MAX accommodates passengers and luggage with ease. As a seven-seater, it has room for everyone, and the 285-litre boot extends to an impressive 2,020 litres when you need extra space for cargo.
You’ll have no trouble getting comfy thanks to the multi-adjustable seat and steering column, and should you require a freshen up on long journeys, multi-contour seats with a massage function are available to keep you relaxed. Add climate control to maintain the perfect cabin temperature, and every drive becomes a real pleasure.
Another compromise you won’t have to make in the new S-MAX is that between power and efficiency. Whether you choose one of the EcoBoost petrol engines or an EcoBlue diesel option, you can enjoy the perfect balance of lively performance and improved economy. You can also pick between manual and automatic transmission to suit your driving preferences.
Take to the road and you’ll find the S-MAX handles like a smaller car. Its advanced suspension delivers impressive control and responsiveness, while electric power-assisted steering makes manoeuvring easier. With Intelligent All-Wheel Drive giving you confidence in changing conditions too, it’s the perfect on-road companion for your ever-changing needs.
Safety and technology
Your family’s safety will always be a priority and the new Ford S-MAX recognises that. With advanced features from Lane Keeping System and Pre-Collision Assist to Torque Vectoring Control and Emergency Brake Assist, it has the necessary safety measures to ensure you travel with complete peace of mind.
Should the worst happen, Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance is there to help. Using your Bluetooth connection, it automatically contacts the emergency services in the event an airbag is deployed, or the fuel-pump deactivated, enabling them to reach you faster.

Front Wide-View Camera Provides an extensive view from the very front of your car to the left- and right-hand sides. Particularly useful at junctions and when driving forwards out of parking spaces where your lateral view is impaired. (Optional on Titanium & Vignale. Only available with the optional Sony DAB Navigation system on Titanium)
Adaptive Steering Enabling effortless driving at all times, in all conditions – even when parking. At lower speeds, such as manoeuvring in a car park, reduced wheel turning is required. At higher speeds, it automatically moves to a more conventional steering ratio to provide comfortable, reassuring feedback (available as an option on Titanium (not on 1.5 EcoBoost models) and Vignale (not with Power Steering Column).
Ford ClearView Wipers System Improves visibility and reduces costs by using less fluid than ordinary screen washer systems. Unlike conventional spray nozzles, multiple holes along the ClearView wipers deliver the washer fluid directly into the path of each wiper blade as it moves across the windscreen (standard across the range).
Hands-free liftgate Opening or closing S-MAX’s tailgate is easy, even when your hands are full. With the keys in your pocket or bag, simply use a gentle kicking motion under the centre of the rear bumper and the tailgate will operate without you having to touch a thing.(Available as an option across the range)
Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights Detects different road conditions and selects the appropriate beam pattern. While the dynamic curve light throws the beam inside the curve to let you see further and sooner. The headlights also incorporate daytime running lights with three LED strips that also function as turn indicators, flashing sequentially towards the direction of turn (standard on Vignale, available as an individual option, or as part of a pack on Titanium & ST-Line).
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go* helps to keep you an appropriate distance from the vehicle in front, even if it slows to a stop. And when the traffic starts moving again, your car will pull away too, making driving easier in slow-moving or stop/start traffic (optional across the range excluding Zetec).
