The S-MAX will be positioned below the seven-seat Ford Galaxy MPV. It will be built alongside the new Ford Galaxy at Ford's production facility in Genk, Belgium. Prices for S-MAX will be announced later in the year closer to its launch date.
The new model includes the Ford fold flat system (FFS) providing a seven seat-configuration.
Further details and technical specifications will be released to coincide with the car's public debut at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show in March.
