C-Max gets 1.0 litre EcoBoost
Ford’s award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine will be lifted in to the C-Max and Grand C-Max this month.
There will be two variants of the 1.0 litre on offer, with a choice of either 99bhp or 123bhp.
The economy figures remain the same regardless of the power output, making us think why would anyone choose the 99bhp? In the C-Max fuel economy is 55.4mpg with 117g/km of CO2 emissions, with the Grand C-Max delivering 54.3mpg and 119g/km of CO2.
Prices for the C-Max, equipped with the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine, will start at £17,695, with the Grand C-Max starting at £19,795.
Along with the new EcoBoost engine, Ford is also introducing a new top-level spec to the Focus-based MPV, the Titanium X model. Standard features on the Titanium X will include a panoramic roof, partial leather seats and new 17-inch alloy wheels. Titanium X prices will start at £22,195.
Other C-MAX updates include the inclusion of Ford’s SYNC in-car connectivity system, Blind Spot Information System and a powered tailgate.
