In a world of stiff auto competition, you can only expect companies to release only the best for their flagship lineups. And the case is not so different with the Ford S-Max 2017 whose unibody, aluminum and steel finish gives it the much-acclaimed premium look and feel. In the recent past, Ford has taken criticism for sticking with aged designs and fearing to turn to the tables as far the exterior form factor it’s vehicles is concerned. So it didn’t come as a surprise when they released a prototype for the new S-Max whose exterior wasn’t anywhere near the company’s past iterations.

Speaking of the exterior, the Ford S-Max 2017 builds on a typical sports style design, but peppers in touches of classical modern look. According to the designer behind Ford’s new look, the Ford S-Max 2017 hails the new Sport Activity Vehicle design also known as SAV. And thus doesn’t come as a shock that Ford’s newest S-Max is a raw combination of a muscular look, vogue, and modernity. Lovers of the S-Max generation can also look forward to 19-inch all aluminum rims and redefined LED headlamps. The model is available in a variety of colors ranging from Candy Red, Deep Blue, Parkside, MoonDust Silver, Hypnotic Silver, Lunar Sky and Panther. This makes it one of the most customizable Ford on the road to date.
