Ford's maximum C for Frankfurt Auto Show

Thu, 03 Sep 2009 00:00:00 -0700

Ford will introduce the redesigned C-Max, which uses the automaker's first global C-segment platform, at the upcoming Frankfurt auto show. The C-Max will be launched worldwide in the second half of 2010, with other models to follow on the platform, including the next-generation Focus, also coming in 2010.

The C-Max takes its "kinetic" design cues from the iosis MAX concept car unveiled at this year's Geneva auto show, incorporating features such as a coupelike sweeping roofline.

A 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost direct-injection gasoline engine and a semiautomatic parallel-parking and blind-spot detection system are among the technologies that the C-Max will introduce to Ford models.

Ford reportedly is bringing a version of this C-Max to the U.S. market. So far the company isn't confirming that, but we expect word any day, possibly at the Frankfurt show.

Watch for more details about the C-Max from Ford's Frankfurt press conference on Sept. 15.
