A lot can happen in 11 years.
Back in 2003, England won the Rugby World Cup – beating Australia 20-17, Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea Football Club for £150 million, and the Congestion Charge was first introduced in London.
It was also the year we launched the C-MAX – the first in a range of multi-activity vehicles that now also includes the seven-seater Grand C-MAX, the B-MAX, and the S-MAX.
We revealed the new S-MAX earlier this week, and today are unveiling the new C-MAX and Grand C-MAX models that also go on sale in the U.K. early next year.
The new version of the model, which has sold more than a million across Europe, will enable drivers to open the boot with a gentle kick motion under the tailgate, and find somewhere to eat by telling the SYNC 2 navigation system “I’m hungry”.
The new C-MAX also helps drivers find parking spaces and manoeuvre in and out of them, while technology that applies the brakes to reduce the impact of collisions if the driver does not respond has been upgraded to work at speeds of up to 30mph.
Keeping families on the move is made cheaper and easier with a line-up offering emissions as low as 99g/km, fuel-efficient engines, and a handy USB connection point for charging mobile devices.
