2017 Ford C-Max Spied Sporting a Pretty Useless Facelift


The 2017 Ford C-Max is getting a minor facelift just in time for its production to end.

Spy photographers caught the updated C-Max with no camouflage, sporting some of the smallest changes we’ve ever seen on a facelift. Up front, the headlights have changed slightly with new LED daytime running lights, while the main grille insert has changed marginally. In the rear, the tail lights are barely redesigned.

The facelift comes at a strange time, as Ford is expected to discontinue the C-Max by mid-2018 at the latest. The spy photographer joked that the hashtag for this C-Max should be #WhyBother.

U.S. sales of the Ford C-Max have struggled in recent years, hitting its peak in 2013 with 35,210 units sold. It has been declining since and so far this year, the American automaker has sold 15,149 units.
