Ford has announced the name for its medium MPV: the S-Max
12 January 2006

Ford has finally revealed a name for the production version of its sporty people-carrier SAV concept, which will be called S-Max when it goes on sale later this year. The S-Max can seat seven thanks to Ford's fold-flat seating system and it claims that the S-Max's practicality can be had without sacrificing driving pleasure or style.

To be built alongside the new Galaxy in Genk, Belgium, the S-Max will be the first production Ford to reflect the firm's new design direction as shown in the Iosis concept car of 2005.

It's a welcome change from the rather conservative Focus. Whether the S-Max will prove to be as capacious and capable as Ford claims remains to be seen, but their track record with the C-Max and old joint-venture Galaxy promises much for the new MPV.
