Click to enlargeFord seldom invents segment-busters, but back in 2008 its European arm did just that. The first-generation S-Max had enough success to be worth replacing with a new generation today. But not enough for any other carmaker to copy it.

Elevator pitch: Itís a minivan with sex appeal. A curving roofline swoops over tapered windows and hipped sheetmetal. Under the skin it shares pretty well everything with Fordís more conventional Euro-minivan, the Galaxy. They in turn are the seven-seat brethren to the European Fusion (which, just to confuse us all, is called the Mondeo across the pond).

Available now in 1:43 scale, NOREV makes this model for Ford Europe (it maybe coming to America...)
