Ford C-MAX EcoBoost announced

Ford has announced it will offer its award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX MPVs.

Ford has announced it will offer its award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX MPVs from this month – combining peppy performance and low emissions in a practical package.

Available in 99bhp and 123bhp guises, the C-MAX EcoBoost will return 55.4mpg economy and 117g/km emissions, while the Grand C-MAX manages 54.3mpg and 119g/km. The figures are identical regardless of engine choice.

The 1.0-litre EcoBoost has already been a runaway success in the Ford Focus, winning International Engine of the Year 2012. Ford has since announced plans to offer it in the facelifted Fiesta and forthcoming Mondeo, with the C-MAX the latest model to receive the new technology.

The three-cylinder turbocharged engine delivers the power of a 1.6 litre, but the efficiency of something much smaller. Its light weight will help with handling, too, and should make the C-MAX one of the most responsive MPVs on sale in the UK.

The introduction of the EcoBoost engines in the C-MAX coincides with the all-new Titanium X specification. This includes a panoramic roof, xenon headlights, half-leather heated seats and 17-inch alloys – all as standard.

The five-seat C-MAX Zetec with a 1.0-litre, 99bhp EcoBoost engine starts at £18,195. Top-of-the-range 123bhp Titanium X cars start at £22,195. The more practical seven-seat Grand C-MAX starts at £19,795, with flagship models costing £23,595.
