2012 Ford C-Max: Live Photos and Video, Plus a Magic Seat

Follow Marty

 

The 2012 Ford C-Max may still be more than a year from showrooms in America, but the new seven-seat MPV took to the hills of Provence last weekend at the hands of High Gear Media.

We're back from driving the C-Max and its European cousin, the C-Max--it's a long story, but the European MPV we get actually is known as the Grand C-Max over there. And while we're pulling together a first drive of each of the vehicles, we thought we'd bring you more of the details that could make the wagon a winner among the likes of the Dodge Journey, the Mazda5 (its kith and kin), and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

It's a small niche, admittedly, but Ford thinks it can convince young families shopping for a bigger minivan in base trim, that a fully outfitted C-Max will do everything they need, while it also delivers features like Sync, a blind-spot warning system, and performance no full-size minivan can match.

We'll be back later this week with a first drive of both the seven- and five-passenger C-Max MPVs. In the meantime, take a closer look at the new vehicle due late next year, particularly the folding middle second-row seat that does a nifty disappearing act--first in our live photos above, then in the second video clip shown below.
