During 2013, Ford introduced two major products with which it is announced that he wanted to try in the premium segment of the European market. First, during the summer, debuted the next-generation S-Max, with significantly higher quality materials in order to attack a luxury Audi. Few months later debuted Vignale version of the Mondeo sedan and wagon form. Even then it was clear that the offer will be extended to the rest of the line and at the recent motor show in Milan presented the 2015 Ford S-Max Vignale.

Design changes to the 2015 Ford S-Max Vignale are quite small and are related to the new grille, 21- inch wheels and a few new “Vignale” label. Chief Designer Stefan Lamm says that the inspiration for the model used exactly in the city of Milan and the S-Max offers something special what traditional Ford buyers have not had a chance to see even the most luxurious Titanium versions. It is expected that Vignale do only 15 % of the total sales of Ford, but the American carmaker will be satisfied when we know how big German premium competitors in this class.
