I do believe the C-MAX is another version of the Focus that will be sold in Europe, not in NA.

"he C-MAX has landed. Ford's eagerly awaited compact MPV is here"

"So how does the Ford fare? Well, considering it's based on the platform of the next-generation Focus - which is 25mm longer and 40mm wider than previously - its underpinnings are the best in the business. The stylists have done well, too - the dipping roofline means there's no boxy tail section and the C-MAX is decidedly better-looking than most of its class rivals."

Yeah well it seems like what that (and others I've read) are saying is that the C-MAX is a model, not a platform, and that the Focus/S40/MZ3 are all based on the same platform as it.

Correct! So the question for us M3 (or MZ3) fans is what components will be shared b/w the 3 cars and where they will be manufactured.

Does anyone know anything?

What I know so far:

Mazda - I4 engines
Ford - Chassis/Suspension
Volvo - Safety

why did you bring this thread back :dunno: ? I guess we can do a little update. The volvo s30 is on the same platform, and the ms3 has the brakes from the s60.
