Am I correct in saying that ford are doing a five seater c max and a severn seater Grand C max. So that is now the galaxy , the s max and now the grand c max. I wont be but if I was going to get a severn seater ford it would be a s max the new grand c max in my opinion is one ugly car.

They are indeed doing both 5 & 7 seaters.
However the 7 seater does not replace the galaxy.

I cant see the point in it myself the galaxy has 7 seats the s max has 7 seats and now a severn seater Grand c max. I cant see why someone would pass those two cars bye simpley because the wanted a severn seater c max. I could if the severn seater Grand c max is 1000's cheaper than the galaxy and s max but I dout it will be so what is the point. I mean what next a severn seater mondeo estate for the companys who want to start there own car sharing scheme.

I totaly agree with you Michael.It just seems to be a way to try & get more people to buy their cars.
However I think they intend to sell all 3 in the States so it would give the Yanks a choice of vehicle to fit their needs & how large the people who use them are going to be (& I know the Yanks are not "small" ).

Obviously their market research indicates there is the demand. I expectFord have found theC-Max has lost a lot of sales to the Zafira because people thought that 2 occasional seats in the very back for the neighbours kids etc... were "nice to have", even if they end up never used and swung buying decisions away from Ford. The S-Max and Galaxy are theclassabove the Zafira (i.e. S-Max has probably taken as many sales from the Espace).

Platform engineering makes it increasingly easy (and cheap)to bash out different bodystyles whilst sharing the oily bits and electronics underneath, making previously small niches profitable. And as MetalMickey08 points out, these are no longer niches if you're going to sell the same car in North America.

the sliding doors on the grand c-max will be handy for tight parking spots when putting kids in and out!
