So, sitting at work today and started wondering - "why is it called a Cmax?" Then a further thought, "why is it an Smax??"





I know someone on here must know.....??

The normal Focus is a C segment car, namely amid size hatchback. So C-Max is C and a bit extra.

S Max just sounds cooler than D Max which it should be which is large car/saloonor E-Max which would be very large car/saloon.

A segment = Mini, Ka
B Segment = 1 series BMW, Fiesta
C Segment = 3 series, Audi A3, Focus,
DSegment = 5 Series, A4, Mondeo,
E Segment = 7 Series, etc. A6, A8, Granada/Scorpio

I think!

Fair enough - makes sense I suppose.

I've learned something today then.

My illusions are shattered. I thought the C and the S were the initial letters of the French numerals 5 and 7, indicating seats. Ah well.

Could well be, or maybe Its the two letters that they found looked most pretty in the font they were using for badges at the time?

There is no excuse for Mondeo, thats a pants name for a car. Bit like Hyundai Accent or Skoda Superb or even Mitsubishi Carisma. Oh dear!
