2016 Ford C-Max

The C-Max is a compact multi-purpose vehicle, which was originally launched in 2003. Since MPV are most popular in Europe, it is no wonder that all C-max models were designed by Ford’s European department, to be more precise, in Germany. However, it is also available in North America, but in hybrid variants only. So far, we have seen two generations of this MVP. Current model came in 2010 as 2011 year model and it will finally come with some modifications this year. According to the latest reports, 2016 Ford C-Max (also known as Ford Focus C-Max) will come with several modifications, both in visual and mechanical terms.

2016 Ford C-Max changes

The 2016 Ford C-Max will come with several modifications, compared to current model. It will come with several visual updates and most of them will, naturally, be on the front end. Front fascia will be completely adapted to the company’s new design language, so you will see familiar Aston Martin-like grille and narrow headlights. Other areas of the car will be modified too, but not with the same level of intensity. Rear end changes will follow those from the front and we expect to see cleaned tailgate design. The 2016 C-Max will also come in new color options – Red Rush and Caribou, and also with new-designed wheels. Big improvements will come inside the cabin of new model. It will feature new thicker glasses and some other new materials, which will make 2016 C-Max much more quite than current one. Interior will also suffer some changes such as restyled center console and updated infotainment system.
