Ford S-Max Concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Ford’s latest don’t-call-it-a-minivan is called the S-Max Concept, and it’s a looker. As you can see, the conceptual overgrown hatch makes good use of Ford’s latest design language, especially at the very front of the S-Max, which bears a striking resemblance to production models that include the Focus, C-Max and Fusion.

Powering the S-Max Concept is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine, and while Ford doesn’t actually list power figures for the concept, previous estimates put the mill at 133 kW of power (about 178 horsepower) and 240 Nm of torque (about 177 pound-feet). Inside, there’s room for seven passengers and at least some of their luggage.

As you’d expect, the S-Max is loaded up with all of Ford’s latest infotainment technology, including Sync and MyFordTouch. More interestingly, there are also onboard heart and blood glucose monitors that we doubt will be seeing the light of production anytime soon. On that topic, don’t expect to see any S-Max-shaped vehicles hitting the US market from Ford, either.
