2015 Ford C-Max: full pricing and specs
Facelifted versions of C-Max and Grand C-Max priced from £18,195 and £20,295 respectively...
Full pricing and specifications have been released for the facelifted 2015 Ford C-Max.
The car gets similar visual changes to those introduced on the likes of the Ford Focus, and also gets a significantly revamped interior and more equipment.
What is it?
The C-Max is one Ford's smaller MPVs and comes with five seats while the Grand C-Max is a seven-seater and adds sliding doors to the mix. This mid-life facelift brings the styling in line with the likes of the revamped Focus and the newly revealed S-Max.
Both the C-Max and Grand C-Max get a new grille, hidden washer jets on the bonnet, redesigned headlights and elongated front foglights. The C-Max gets a restyled rear end with a smoother appearance – the grab handle for opening the boot has been tucked away to help achieve this. The Grand C-Max is unchanged at the back.
Inside, it comes with a simplified instrument panel, which is in the same style as that on the latest version of the Focus.
What engines can I choose from?
The C-Max and Grand C-Max are equipped with a new 1.5-litre Ecoboost petrol engine in either 148bhp or 178bhp formats. A 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol is also offered, in 99bhp and 123bhp outputs, with CO2 emissions of 99g/km for the lower powered version in the five-seat C-Max.
There's a 1.5-litre diesel engine that replaces the outgoing 1.6-litre and produces 118bhp while a bigger 2.0-litre diesel offers 148bhp. CO2 emissions are 114g/km and 124g/km respectively.
What new equipment does it come with?
Three trim levels are available - Zetec, Titanium and Titanium Sport - and both the C-Max and the Grand C-Max get the latest version of Ford's Sync2 infotainment system as standard, and this drastically reduces the number of buttons on the central console.
A new glovebox, a deep storage box with a USB socket on the upper dash and improved materials are also included while a heated steering wheel is offered as an option. The cupholders in the centre of the cabin are larger, and now able to take a one-litre bottle and a 0.4-litre cup at the same time.
The C-Max also gets the hands-free tailgate that Ford offers on the latest generation of Kuga and the forthcoming S-Max MPV. This can be operated by waving a foot underneath the rear bumper.
How much will it cost?
Prices for the new C-Max start from £18,195 for the 1.6-litre petrol in Zetec trim, and rise to £26,145 for the 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine with an automatic gearbox in Titanium X spec.
The Grand C-Max starts at £20,275 for a Zetec trim 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine, and the most expensive model in the range is the Titanium X automatic version of the 148bhp diesel engine that costs £27,615.
Can I get a discount?
Current versions of the C-Max enjoy hefty discounts, of more than £3500 in some cases. We'd expect the face-lifted version to continue in a similar vein, so haggle hard.
