Comfort and Convenience

The Ford S-MAX rewards everyone, with generous space for passengers and luggage. But if you need to accommodate camping or water sports equipment, for example, its flexible rear seating system lets you make room. To really spoil yourself, choose the Vignale for heated and cooled, 10-way adjustable power front seats with massage function. Use the FordPass app for smarter stress-free journeys, with remote features, vehicle health alerts and fuel reports so you're always connected and informed.

The key to a more connected world

For the first time, the new S-MAX is available with FordPass Connect. The system provides a range of invaluable benefits, including up to 4G WiFiWi-Fi Hotspot (up to 4G) for up to ten devices, and real-time traffic updatesFordPass with Live Traffic delivered straight to your in-car navigation system. When combined with the FordPass app on your phone, you’ll be able to check if you remembered to lock the doors, and then lock or unlock them remotely. You can even see your van’s location on a map, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting where you parked when in unfamiliar locations.

Seats that provide added support… and can give you a massage

Multi-contour seats are available for the driver and front passenger and the design makes them fully adjustable. As a result, they can provide added support where you need it and even offer you a massage, helping you stay fresh on long journeys.

A panorama roof for a lighter, airier feel

At the press of a button, the electronically operated roof blind glides away, allowing natural light to stream in through the panorama roof. At the same time, solar reflective glass keeps you cool and protects you from harmful UV rays.

A steering column that adjusts to suit you

To help you find your ideal, most comfortable driving position, the steering column easily adjusts for both rake and reach.

Smart seating system for ultimate flexibility 

Versatile seating provides generous space for up to seven, with folding second- and third-row seats enabling numerous seating and stowage configurations. For example, the second-row and third-row seats can be folded flat at the press of a button making instant room for your sporting gear or bulky DIY purchases.

Key-free means hassle-free

The Ford KeyFree System lets you lock and unlock your vehicle, without having to take your key out of your pocket or bag. You can also open the door if the key is inside the car, or use the FordPass app to securely lock and unlock from anywhere, without the need for a key at all.

Are you sitting comfortably?

The S-MAX is available with specially designed ergonomic seats, maximising your back support, and keeping you comfortable and relaxed on even the longest journeys. The 18-way adjustable seats (including an electrically-operated, 4-way adjustable lumbar support), have been certified by the AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) and are recommended by doctors and physiotherapists.

Helping to keep you inside the speed limit

Intelligent speed assist is designed to enhance your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit.

Start your vehicle with the touch of a button

S-MAX automatically senses the presence of its own unique key fob, even if it’s in your pocket or bag. So just press the Ford Power Starter Button and the engine fires to life.

A hands-free tailgate for effortless opening and closing

If you’ve got your hands full, and the S-MAX senses the proximity of your KeyFree key fob, all you have to do is wave your foot under the rear bumper and the tailgate will automatically open or close.
