Debuting as the first major update to the second-generation range that launched in 2010, the refreshed C-Max gets a number of styling and equipment upgrades.
Headlining those enhancements is the C-Max’s revised front end that features Ford’s broad new Aston-like grille design and sweptback headlights.
Exterior tweaks continue at the rear, with subtly re-sculpted tail lights and a newly contoured tailgate design.
The cabin also gets a look-in on the upgrades list, with a restyled and simpler dash, a new 8-inch touch screen and the new SYNC2 infotainment system.
Ford also promises a noticeable improvement in interior materials and insulation for a quieter ride.
Depending on the model, powertrains include 88 and 132kW tunes of Ford’s 1.5 litre turbo diesel, along with the existing 74 and 91kW versions of the award-winning 1.0 litre three-cylinder EcoBoost turbo petrol.
The updated C-Max twins go on sale in Europe later this year. But, like the larger S-Max, an Australian debut is not expected.
