S-MAX is now available with a new FHEV (Fully Hybrid Electric Vehicle) powertrain. This 2.5-litre petrol engine hybrid system delivers 190PS and 200Nm of torque – exceptional figures for a hybrid. Its equally impressive towing capacity of up to 1750 kg lets you take anything from a jet ski to a small caravan on your travels.

There’s no need for plug-in charging, and the battery is nested under the boot floor, so you don’t lose any luggage space.
Alongside its flexible design, the S-MAX has loads of technologies to help you with virtually every aspect of driving. For example, the rear-view camera and the Blind Spot Information System give you effortless control, while on the road PowerShift, EcoBoost and the enhanced suspension provide more power, a smother ride and require less fuel.
Impressive performance with lower costs and lower carbon emissions The range of engines and gearboxes available on the S-MAX lets you choose your own combination of power and efficiency. For example, the EcoBoost range of petrol and diesel engines are class leading for fuel efficiency and emissions. Highlights include the 2.0-litre EcoBoost SCTi petrol engine, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 20%, and the enhanced 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine. The S-Max is also equipped with several smart features to further enhance the performance and efficiency of its engines.
There are many ways the Ford S-Max MPV makes driving around town or on longer journeys easier, safer and more pleasurable. From the innovative technology to the impressive capacity and flexible interior, the versatile S-Max has plenty to offer.
For peace of mind, The Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Traction Control and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses any deviations from your chosen driving line (for example, if you start to skid) and automatically corrects your road position, helping you keep control of the car. This technology also helps reduce stopping distances in an emergency.
Bollards, low walls, kids playing… the rear-view camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the display on your dashboard. As well as showing you things you might not see, it helps you park, by displaying virtual lines to guide you into the smallest space. For added convenience, the rear-view camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear. The rear-view camera is standard with the Touchscreen Navigation PLUS system with DAB Audio.
