An MPV with dynamic and sporty looks, the Ford S-MAX has proven incredibly popular with active families since it was first introduced. Built for excitement it is more stylish and packed with technology than ever before. S-MAX now offers a new engine option, too: a 2.5-litre petrol hybrid engine.
Alongside reduced CO2 emissions, it delivers exceptional power, torque and towing capability. There’s no need for plug-in charging and the battery is hidden under the floor, so there is no compromise on loadspace at all. In fact, you’ll find every inch of this car is designed for those with an adventurous spirit.
A range of petrol engines, including Ford's new 1.5-litre EcoBoost, are available alongside several iterations of the all-new Ford 2.0-litre TDCi diesel. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic, the latter of which offers shorter ratios for seamless acceleration.
Smart fuel-saving technology such as Auto-Start-Stop and Ford Eco Mode keep running costs and environmental impact low.
The S-MAX is available with a wide array of modern comfort, connected and driving features. Multi-contour seats with a massage function are available for front occupants to make journeys relaxing and luxurious, while modular rear seats allow you to create the perfect load and passenger carrying combinations. Ford SYNC affords you full smartphone integration too.
The safety of you and your passengers is paramount, which is why the S-MAX comes with a full complement of airbags, traction control and emergency driver aids as standard.
Ford are excited to announce that as well as offering S-MAX drivers their perfectly sized, feature-rich people carrier, there is now an even bigger reason to choose this iconic vehicle. The Ford S-MAX Hybrid now combines seven-seat practicality with the refinement, efficiency and convenience of a full electric/petrol hybrid powertrain.
Offering a seamless transition for all drivers who wish to go electric Intuitive features help drivers monitor and improve their fuel and energy efficiency using interfaces for the available 10-inch digital instrument display. Brake Coach encourages gradual braking to help return more energy to the battery, and EV Coach helps drivers understand when they are using electric or hybrid power.
The new S‑MAX Hybrid reduces CO2 emissions by more than 10 per cent (WLTP) when compared with the equivalent EcoBlue diesel powertrain. A combination of a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine, 1.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, electric motor and the latest generation of Ford’s power-split transmission enables an effortless driving and ownership experience that can help active families to reduce their CO2 emissions while enjoying more relaxing journeys.
Electric power is intelligently deployed to support petrol engine fuel efficiency or deliver silent, pure-electric driving for short periods depending on the scenario.
Battery charge is automatically replenished by the petrol engine and by using regenerative charging technology when coasting or braking. With no need for owners to plug into an external power source, S-MAX Hybrid is designed to seamlessly fit into family life – always ready to deliver electric power regardless of unpredictable schedules.
