Ford dubs SAV the S-Max in Europe

Ford of Europe has announced that it will call the production version of the SAV concept (shown) the S-Max. This naming convention follows in the footsteps of Ford’s C-Max, which itself was a concept way back in 2002 before it entered production for the 2004 model year.
Ford considers the S-Max the first production vehicle to showcase elements of the company’s “kinetic” design language introduced on the Iosis concept in Frankfurt last year. It will be positioned between the Mondeo Wagon and seven-seat Galaxy and be built alongside them at Ford’s plant in Genk, Belgium.

The S-Max can be purchased with either two or three rows of seating, which allows for 5- or 7-passenger seating, respectively. Pricing of the S-Max will be announced sometime when the vehicle goes on sale in the middle of this year.
