Broad appeal of redesigned C-Max

The new Ford C-Max was launched over here last week, and though it was too late to be included in the Irish car awards, it is on the seven-car shortlist for the European Car of the Year -- which interestingly does not contain any of the 10 cars on the Irish list.
As a special launch offer and for a limited time only, all C-Max Titanium models will come with Active Park Assist as standard -- an option that normally costs €750.
The new Ford C-Max has been fully redesigned inside and out and is kitted out with a range of improved, fuel-efficient, low CO2 engines. In addition to the 5-seater C-Max, a new 7-seater Grand C-Max version has been added to the line-up, providing even more flexibility and choice for Irish motorists.
Developed as part of the company's ambitious global C-segment strategy and with a bold and dynamic two-model line-up, the C-Max family claims to bring "new levels of style and desirability" to the compact Multi-Activity Vehicle (MAV) market.
"With a lead-in price of €23,995 and with a great range of spec available, we expect the car to appeal to a broad base of customers, including young families and 'empty nesters'," said Eddie Murphy, chairman and managing director of Ford Ireland.
