The Ford iosis MAX was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show as a preview of the next generation of the Ford Focus.

The iosis MAX features striking exterior and interior styling which is based on a fresh interpretation of Ford's "kinetic" design language.

The iosis MAX's dramatic looks are complemented by clever solutions which enhance its practicality and environmental performance. These include innovative door opening mechanisms, lightweight materials and advanced aerodynamics.

"The iosis MAX marks the next stage in the evolution of kinetic design, and showcases a number of affordable petrol engine technologies that will make a difference to the environment and our customers' pockets," says Martin Smith, Ford of Europe's Executive Design Director.

The interior of the concept features strong dynamic lines, very expressive surfaces and an inherent sense of lightness. The instrument panel is a key element, having a slim, muscular shape which 'reaches out' to the body sides, suspended above the floor like a gymnast gripping rings.

The innovative use of shapes and materials is also reflected in the centre console, which has a smooth plexiglass surface which rolls down from the instrument panel like a ribbon and flows through to the rear of the passenger compartment. The whole of the console surface acts as a touch-screen display to control the vehicle's infotainment systems.

Powering the Ford iosis MAX is a new EcoBoost, 1.6 litre, turbocharged, four cylinder engine which puts out a healthy 178 horsepower. This engine offers up to 20 percent better fuel economy when compared with similar power larger displacement units. A new Ford Auto-Start-Stop system, intelligent alternator and electric power steering all ensure that power is only drawn from the engine when it is required, further reducing fuel consumption.
