Ford Takes Wraps off Redesigned C-Max

GENEVA, Switzerland — Ford of Europe will unveil its redesigned C-Max MPV, one of the latest examples of the company's "kinetic design" language, in March at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show.

The new C-Max features a slightly wider track than the outgoing model. Changes include a revised front end with a new one-piece sculpted bumper, trapezoidal lower grille and chrome-accented upper grille, bi-xenon headlights and vertical foglamps. Other changes include a panoramic glass roof and new interior updates. Safety features include electronic stability control, side curtain airbags and what Ford calls a pedal intrusion prevention system.

A sport package includes a lowered suspension, specially designed 17-inch alloy wheels, sport seats and a leather steering wheel. A wide slate of diesel and gas engines are available, including an E85 configuration that can be modified to run on compressed natural gas. The gas engines include 1.6-liter, 1.8- liter and 2.0-liter configurations and range from 98 to 143 horsepower. The base transmission is a five-speed manual.
