This time of year many of you are heading to your cars with a slew of packages in your hand. Ford may have found the perfect solution.

In its new C-MAX crossover vehicle you won’t need to try to free your hands to unlock the trunk by yourself or get someone to help you. You simply raise your foot somewhere near the center of the rear bumper and the hatch opens itself.

You have to have the key fob in your pocket or in your purse, just somewhere on you. You can check out video of how it works here.

It’ll be available on the C-MAX crossover which is already pretty popular in Europe but makes its US debut at the Detroit auto show in January.
