A couple video's showing some of the new features in the C-Max & Grand C-Max, but thought some might be interested here to see this new vehicle in the flesh and on the road.
Also to note is in the 1st vid the C-Max is spec'd with the optional Sony IP and in the 2nd vid the Grand C-Max is spec'd with the cell phone like IP found in the Fiesta.

I really like how good this next gen C-Max looks, cannot wait to see it in the showroom.

I think I've only heard confirmation on the C-Max Grande, the one with the rear sliders. Not sure about the "regular" C-Max.

oh ok
well at first that speed limiter worried me...
...until they said you could set it up to 110mph :vroom: :vroom:
&
if you floored it, it'd let you go even faster http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/biggrin.gif

BUT
ie AND But!!!
the design of the front fascia gave me an idea for how to modify a Focus to be a proper Mercury

(btw the new Focus is getting that feature too!)

Seems German market brochure shows both 1.6l EcoBoost outputs & more exterior and interior colour choices (so far)

Other design item I noticed is the chrome strip in the grille work following the new family look first seen in the refresh S-Max, Galaxy, Mondeo and next gen Focus. I prefer the grille shown in the above video's I posted.

I hope I fit in the G-C-Max - Before getting the Flex the wife and I checked out the Mazda5 and I literally did not fit (Legroom) even with the seat all the way back.

Nice, the higher output 1.6 EcoBoost makes 182PS (179.51hp or 180hp).

THANKS for the videos, MKII http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/images/icons/icon14.gif

I've only watched the last one so far (dialup)
but it sounded to me like they were talking about dimensions about 0:43 into it
however they were talking too fast for me to understand. Can you help me out? I'd really like to know the differences between the GCM and the regular C-Max.

Thanx for the greatest info :)

Evereything I wonder about these cars are ready..For example kerb weight , exact wheelbase etc..
It is interesting to see 1.6 ecoboost engines are not available with powershift and 1.6 tdci engines are now 2 valves per cylinder. 1.6 ecoboost's torque curve is very promosing.

Well, its too stupid that LED DRLs are available in the upcoming focus but not in the Cmax..

Also, there is no mention of bi-xenon headlights in the cmax in that brochure but it can be seen in so many youtube videos.

It looks as if there is no LED eyebrows for the C-MAX, but bi-xenon headlights are offered in the Titanium-X pack, which you can read on the brochure links I posted
previously page 1 of this thread.
