The upcoming 2019 Ford S-Max is a very modern and affordable MPV. The second generation is present, however, there will be plenty of changes for the arriving model. Some significant changes are ahead of this model and even a hybrid drivetrain is available.
Ford S-Max suffered its latest redesign in 2015 so the forthcoming model will get a facelift. Moreover, the interior will bring interesting changes even though we don’t have all the information. The interior brings comfort and friendly environment. Generally, this MPV offers space like a regular SUV and driving manners like a regular car. Interestingly, Ford S-Max was in one of the Top Gear episodes. This model was competing against Mercedes B200 and Vauxhall Zafira and it was described as the MPV with the most comfortable interior and best-looking exterior. Practicality is another advantage of the S-Max model and the price is affordable.

While the most of the changes are visible, the 2019 Ford S-Max will remain the same. That means the shape and the stance are intact. The changes include a rhomboidal grille with chrome accents and thinner LED headlights. The hood line is also all-new and it looks gorgeous. The rear end will get flat styling and the stop lights sit higher than before. To the side, the sloping roof is nicely done and the aluminum line that runs across the whole body looks elegant. The S-Max takes a wide stance and it looks very sporty thanks to the latest upgrades.
