OverviewTechnology should always have a purpose. And in a new C-MAX that’s to keep you as comfortable, connected and safe as possible. So discover a range of remarkable technologies that are simple to use, or simply work for you.
Go hands-free with SYNC 3
SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
Comfortable, flexible, fold-flat seats
The C-MAX can accommodate a family of five in refined comfort, with the three individual rear seats able to fold flat to maximise space. The seven seat Grand C-MAX also enables you to quickly fold away the middle second-row seat beneath the right-hand seat. This ingenious 2+2+2 layout means you can create a ‘walk-through’ corridor for easy access.
Parking made even easier
Active Park Assist can steer you into parking spaces just 20% longer than your vehicle. Simply push a button and the sensors of this innovative system locate a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake (following on-screen instructions and audible signals).
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Comfort & Convenience
Easy access, all round
With unique, twin sliding rear doors it’s easy for your passengers to get in and out. This intelligent design also prevents the doors banging against other cars, or walls, in tight parking spaces.
A panorama roof for a lighter, airier feel
At the press of a button, the electronically operated roof blind glides away, allowing natural light to stream in through the panorama roof. At the same time, solar reflective glass keeps you cool and protects you from harmful UV rays.
Performance & Efficiency
Get the most out of your engine
The revolutionary 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 100PS and 125PS with CO2 emissions of just 117g/km for the C-MAX and 119g/km for the Grand C-MAX. That’s the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6L engine, only with better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Named International Engine of the Year for three years in succession.
Efficient Diesel options
Prefer diesel? Then choose from a 1.5L TDCi or 2.0L TDCi. Both incorporate the latest engine technology to improve power, torque and economy, while lowering emissions. The 1.5L TDCi provides a power output of 105PS or 120PS, whilst the 2.0L TDCi delivers an even more potent 150PS.
Safety & Security
To help avoid low speed collisions
The innovative Active City Stop helps the driver avoid a collision in slow-moving traffic or at speeds up to 30mph. It does this by continually measuring the distance to the vehicle in front when it is within a near range. If the system detects the vehicle in front has unexpectedly reduced speed, it automatically applies the brakes.
Stay in control whatever the conditions
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
