As a special launch offer - and for a limited time only - all C-MAX Titanium models will come with Active Park Assist as standard, an option that normally costs €750.
In addition to the five-seater C-MAX, a new seven-seater Grand C-MAX version has been added to the line-up providing even more flexibility and choice for Irish motorists.
"With a lead-in price of €23,995, we believe the car will be a very attractive package for Irish motorists looking for a new car for 2011", said Eddie Murphy, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland.
"And with a great range of spec available including the added bonus of Active Park Assist as standard on Titanium models, we expect the car to appeal to a broad base of customers including young families and 'empty nesters'."
The new C-MAX will be available in two series in Ireland: ACTIV and Titanium with three diesel engine options available in each series.
