Is Ford already preparing the C-Max for a refresh? A spy photographer recently caught a C-Max test mule hiding an Aston Martin-like nose and testing in the snow of Sweden.
From the looks of this early prototype, Ford may only have minor updates in store for the C-Max, which just landed on our shores last year, and has only been on sale in Europe since 2011. Based on this mule, the main change we should expect to see on the updated Ford C-Max consist of a new nose, with the Aston Martin-styled grille that's graced the Fusion and updated Fiesta. Revised headlights with LED running lights and tweaked rear-end styling may be in the cards as well.
We expect the updated C-Max to hit Europe first with a range of gas and diesel engines late this year. The U.S.-spec C-Max will remain hybrid- and plug-in-hybrid-only, and will likely be updated next year.
How do you think Ford should update the C-Max?
