The Ford S-Max. European Car of the Year 2007.

It was a close finish, but in the end The Ford S-MAX was declared the winner of the European Car of the Year 2007, by just two points over the Opel Opel Corsa, in a competition in which 41 contenders for the award were reduced to a short list of eight. The final places were as follows, Ford S-MAX (first), Opel Corsa Opel Corsa (second), Citro├źn C4 Picasso (third), Skoda Skoda Roomster (fourth), Honda Honda Civic (fifth), Peugeot Peugeot 207 (sixth), Volvo Volvo C30 (seventh) and Fiat Grande Punto (eighth). The voting was made by a panel of senior motoring journalists from across Europe. The organisation behind the European Car of the Year awards is a committee made up by the owners of top European magazines.

The new Ford S-Max is a new concept called a multi activity vehicle (MAV) and is firmly placed in size between the mondeo and galaxy models, creating a whole new market place for themselves as there are those who feel that the galaxy is too large and the mondeo too small, this is a clever inclusion into the Ford Ford range of cars and as the S-Max will be built in Belgium, the Ford history continues there like it has done since the 1960’s.
