Chronology
PredecessorFord C1 platform

The Ford C2 platform is a platform made by Ford since 2018. It replaced the Ford C1 platform as the platform for its compact cars.[1] The modularity of the platform enables it to be used for various models, which spreads out development costs over more vehicles.[2] It can use torsion beam or multilink rear suspension. Unlike its predecessor, the C2 platform can be used for cars of varying wheelbases and track widths, from subcompact to compact.[3] Cars based on the C2 platform have been reviewed very favourably with regards to driving characteristics.[4][5]
