S-Max Technical Specification
Gone are the days when you had to choose between power and efficiency. With the All-New S-MAX, ingenious design, innovative engineering and technologies like Auto Start-Stop enable you to enjoy the perfect combination of both.
EcoBoost: no compromise power and efficiency
Two EcoBoost petrol engine options use a combination of direct fuel injection and turbo-charging, to deliver outstanding levels of performance and economy:
A new 1.5L EcoBoost petrol engine adds to the revolutionary EcoBoost range. Cleverly downsized from the 1.6L EcoBoost, the engine provides excellent emissions and fuel economy along with 160PS of power. An even more powerful 2.0 litre EcoBoost option delivers an impressive 240PS.
A range of diesel options
Prefer diesel? An advanced All-New 2.0L TDCi gives you a choice of four power options: 120PS, 150PS, 180PS and a bi-turbo 210PS. Every engine incorporates the latest technology to improve power, torque and economy, while lowering emissions: an enhanced design delivers low CO2 while improving fuel economy.
S-Max Key Features
Confidence in changeable conditions
An available intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this ‘torque on demand’ system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.
Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions.
At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering. Now with drift control, EPAS also takes into account crosswinds and other driving conditions, while active nibble control reduces any unwanted vibration in the steering wheel.
Sees what’s coming, from either side
A tiny (optional) camera, on the front of the All-New S-MAX, relays a split-screen image to your car’s Multi-Function Display so you can see vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians coming from either side. This optional new technology option is invaluable if you’re edging out of a narrow parking space, or onto a busy road where your view is obstructed.
Stress-free parking and pulling out
Using a combination of different technologies, Active Park Assist does more than steer you into parallel parking spots. With Park Out Assist (POA), it helps you pull out of them, too. The Perpendicular Parking (PPA) system can sense if there’s space for your car to fit, then reverse you in. Side Parking Aid (SPA) also warns you if there are any lateral obstructions.
Easier reversing, as you can view what’s behind
Bollards, railings low walls… the rear view camera (option) shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the centre stack display and activates automatically when you select reverse gear. The system also displays virtual guidelines, to help you park in the smallest of spaces.
An advanced system to help you stay in lane
A Lane Keeping System (standard on Titanium and Titanium Sport) uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re accidentally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Alert then warns you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning. If you're slow to react or don’t respond, Lane Keeping Aid can provide steering assistance to help guide you safely back into the right lane. The technology is designed for multi-lane roads (like motorways), so will automatically deactivate at speeds below 43mph (65 km/h) or can be turned off manually.
