Ford has unveiled the S-MAX Vignale concept at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. The S-MAX Vignale concept is a preview of the second Ford Vignale vehicle that will go on sale in Europe following the Monedeo Vignale next year.
The S-MAX Vignale concept is inspired by trends from furniture and fashion with its distinctive 21-inch alloy wheels, dark-chromed polished aluminum detailing, special Vignale grille, quilted leather seats and an exclusive exterior color called “Milano Grigio.”
The S-MAX Vignale concept is all about the minor details with leather that extends from the dashboard and instrument panel to sweep past the glass roof to the rear luggage compartment in a single color that creates a lounge-like environment. The seats also feature a new variation on the quilting effect first demonstrated in the Mondeo Vignale Concept. The front seats and outer rear seats feature hexagonal quilting bordered with square quilting that stretches across the center-rear seat and front armrest. “Tone-on-tone” stitching with thick dark red thread highlight the seat centers and is complemented by lighter exterior thread at the seats’ perimeters.
“We can see from the designs around us at Salone del Mobile and Milan Design Week that modern luxury does not need to be loud,” said Stefan Lamm, exterior design director, Ford of Europe. “Lighter tones and careful application of detailing have helped us deliver a level of sophistication Ford customers have not seen before.”
Ford says that a production version of the S-MAX Vignale Concept will go on sale in Europe next year.
