'Car of the Year 2007' Ford S-Max originates from Genk

Flanders has built a strong reputation as a high-quality automotive region throughout the industry. Now it receives once again recognition for its excellent work.

Sixty or so journalists from several European countries have voted the Ford S-Max ‘Car of the Year’. This model is exclusively made in the Flemish city of Genk.   According to journalists, the Ford S-Max is the most innovative new car in terms of design, comfort and safety. The small MPV from Ford (Genk) was chosen ahead of the Opel Corsa, the Citroen Picasso and the Skoda Roomster. Ford Genk came into the prizes for the first time back in 1994 already, when the Ford Mondeo carried off the same prize. (source:
