Ford’s Never going to Make a C-MAX ST

Even though it’s probably a formula with some potential behind it, you won’t see a C-MAX ST – sorry folks. Maybe it would, by the way of aggressive sportiness, inject some verve into the compact MPV sector, where the (freshly facelifted) Ford C-Max resides.

This ST variant, a rendering in the usual style of X-Tomi, is deeply appealing, but only to the petrolhead inside. For the family man looking at such a vehicle, but maybe requiring a bit more go than the C-Max engine range has to offer, would very easily just switch and get a Ford Focus ST estate (a car that actually exists and now comes with a pokey diesel too).

In fact, if Ford were to hypothetically make this C-Max ST (which they won’t) it’d be best suited to taking its power from the same diesel mill that power the Focus ST.

The author of the rendering suggests this could go up against the VW Golf Sportsvan GTI. Does that exist and/or are they likely to make one? Nope.

    Just as it should be. Putting lipstick on a pig and calling it beautiful doesn’t make it so.

    This would be a dream, my only would be that it was influenced more by the new Focus ST in terms of it’s lower-front fasica/bumper, then the old one. I want the practicality and space, I love the good gas mileage of the hybrid C max I currently drive, which i could probably also achieve if it came with a diesel, and it handles very nicely being based on the Ford Focus. But it’s just lacking that extra amount of oomph and handling that would make it a fantastic low-cost daily-driver alternative to a BMW or VW GTI. Those rims are pretty sick though, great job as always to X-Tomi.

    Wow! I want this car… I want it so much!, lol.
    I wouldn’t normally buy a family car, but I’m veeeery tall and C-Max is the car I fit in best, I haven’t found a nice car with more head-room. So, back in 2012 I bought a pretty LimeLight 2012 C-Max (EU version).

    I don’t have that car anymore, but now I’m planning to buy a new 2016 C-Max. Yet, its front… There’s something I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something not right with the frontal lower grid, I’m not that enthusiastic about buying the new C-Max.

    BUT!… But this X-Tomi version, man! This rocks! Totally, it’s a dream!
    Damn!… If I had enough money I’d take these pics and I’d UNDOUBTEDLY go for a car-body tuning.
