New seven-seat Ford C-Max pictures leak out

These are the first official images of the Grand Ford C-Max, the new seven-seat version of the MPV.

The Grand C-Max pictures have leaked on to the internet ahead its official launch.

Much of its styling follows the same themes as the five-door C-Max unveiled last week, although the seven-seater is longer and has a sliding rear door. The roofline of the Grand C-Max also slopes less than the five-seater, allowing more headroom for rear-seat passengers.

The pictures also show the car's interior - something that was not shown in the five-seat reveal, but which Ford has boasted will set new quality standards.

Speculation suggests that engine options will include the usual petrol and diesel units from the Focus and Kuga, as well as Ford's new 1.6-litre EcoBoost unit.

Re: Grand Ford C-Max revealed

Could Ford be planning to pull the Galaxy/S-max? Renault were certainly talking about pulling the Espace, since the launch of their new "Grand" Scenic (larger than the previous Grand Scenic and therefore close enough to replace the ageing Espace).

As buyers are looking to down-size their cars on economic and environmental grounds, it may make sense to pull the old large mpv and replace with the more popular and affordable midi mpv.

I like that, and it's been a while since I've thought that about a Ford. Shouldn't take sales from S-MAX, the C-MAX is a part time 7 seater, sized as a five seater MPV with a bit of added versatility for school runs and stuff at the cost of all the luggage space. I'd buy this, but not the S-MAX as that wouldn't fit where I need to park it.

C'mon Ford - did you HAVE to pinch 'Grand' from Renault? (What was wrong with C-Maxed Out?!) Oh well, at least it's better proportioned than the 5-seater. The seats look nice. But the dash could be from almost anything. And the rear half of the exterior is a dog's breakfast.
