paris 2014 revised 2015 ford c max debuts

The Astonization of Ford continues, this time with the newly revised 2015 C-Max, bowing at the 2014 Paris Auto Show.

Along with the new face, the compact MPV boasts new tail lamps, revised hatch, new alloy wheels, two new shades of color — Red Rush and Caribou — and an updated center console with fewer buttons and less stitching for a cleaner look.

Safety features for the C-Max include parking assist, cross-traffic alert, the new Park-Out Assist — allowing the crossover to unpark itself from tight spaces — and adaptive cruise control.

Under the hood, a 1.5-liter turbo-four is now available, while European customers also receive a variety of engines, from a 2-liter turbodiesel, to a 1-liter EcoBoost.

Speaking of Europe, the above reflect what can be had in the market, with no word as of yet regarding if any of the changes will cross the Atlantic.

    What in the world is a "C-Max"? Is this an Escort, Fiesta, Focus or an Escape in econo-mode?

      The first generation was called "Focus C-Max"; it only dropped the "Focus" from the name after the mid-life face-lift. So no, not a Fiesta.

    I love egg-mobiles and this is now the most attractively smooth and conservative looking. Exudes quality without pretense of any kind. It appears to have more capacity than the HR-V with a larger greenhouse. Egg!
