The key to a more connected world

For the first time, the new S-MAX is available with a FordPass Connect modem. The system provides a range of invaluable benefits, including up to 4G WiFi for up to ten devices, and real-time traffic updates 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.

Download the FordPass app to access even more features

FordPass Connect becomes even more powerful after it’s been paired with your smartphone via the FordPass app. Once connected, you’ll unlock a range of innovative new features. For example, you can use your phone to locate your vehicle, lock and unlock it remotely. You can monitor fuel level, mileage and tyre pressure, and get vehicle health alerts direct to your phone. Plus, you can even start your car (auto Transmission only) so that it’s de-iced, demisted and ready to go when you are. You can also program your satnav from home by sending a destination directly from your phone to the car.

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.

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. Ideal when you’ve got your hands full.

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.

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.
