Model shown is a Ford S-MAX ST-Line Hybrid.

When choosing your S-MAX’s powertrain, you have several options to consider. Will you go for our new 2.5-litre petrol hybrid engine, combining reduced CO2 emissions with impressive power? Or would you prefer our advanced diesel engine? If you decide on diesel, which power option? Which transmission: six-speed manual or our eight=speed PowerShift automatic? Do you need All-Wheel Drive? Decisions, decisions. Fortunately, we’ve made it easy for you to compare your options.

Efficient yet powerful Full Hybrid Electric

S-Max’s new powertrain option combines a highly efficient 2.5-litre Atkinson Cycle Petrol engine with a battery-powered electric motor. The system recaptures energy usually lost while coasting and decelerating and uses it to recharge battery, so there’s no need to plug in to recharge. Since it has a powerful water-cooled battery it also lets you drive short distances on electric power alone. To preserve boot space, the battery is nested under the floor. While achieving CO2 emissions of just 147g/km, the new engine delivers an impressive Combined Power of 140kw (190PS). As a result, the S-Max Hybrid has a towing capacity of 1750 kg: enough for a small boat, for example.

A range of diesel options 

Prefer diesel? An advanced All-New 2.0L TDCi gives you a choice of two power options: 150PS or 190PS. Both engines incorporate the latest technology to improve power, torque and economy, while lowering emissions: an enhanced design delivers low CO2 while improving fuel economy.
