The development of the performance of this S-Max sounds so great! As for the looks of it, I love the classy and sophisticated that this car is expressing.

I really love stainless car. smiley S-Max and galaxy is not on exception on those car that I love. Looks so simple but very appealing which I love the most with my car.

This car is nice and it is a car for one family, all members of family can takes a road trip with the use of this car. But this car is much similar to toyota innova or toyota avanza.

S-Max and Galaxy is still impressived even though the styling and the platform design is almost the same with the other car but they are right that the paint that they use is really suited for it.

This S-Max and Galaxy seems so impressive and the developed performance of this is quite good but looking at this car it seems that it is so ordinary and nothing special.

I own a Mazda 5 and a Nissan Cube. Both are great, but neither is exactly what I was looking for.

America however wants a larger and less expensive vehicle and will the profit out of these more expensive European cars. That doesn’t mean of course that there are not many Americans that appreciate and would pay for the same vehicles that Europeans and Canadians do,
but maybe not enough of them.

The performance seems similar to the Mercedes- Benz 2.2Lcrd model.

Its funny, I hear of all these folks who say "Ooh, I wish GM/Ford would offer that car or that engine in the states!" I wonder if Europeans say the same thing. "Oooh, I wish the US offered the Ford Expedition over here in Britain!)
