This family-friendly MPV has plenty of innovative features to enhance its practicality and ease of use. This model also offers a lively drive, with a range of capable engines and light but precise steering. The B-MAX is a superb all-rounder and great value for money, particularly when you take advantage of one of our competitive finance offers.
The compact form of the B-MAX features a radical door design, with sliding rear doors and no middle pillars. This creates a 1.5-metre opening for passengers to get in and out. Importantly, the structural strength of the missing pillar is integrated into the rear door, so the body strength is not compromised. The streamlined form and unique headlight and tail-light clusters give the B-MAX a distinctive style. All models except the entry-level Studio variant are fitted with 15-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and front fog lights as standard.
Thanks to the wide opening into the cabin, climbing in and out of the Ford B-MAX is very easy. Once in, you can enjoy ample head and legroom in surroundings that feel light and airy. The range-topping Titanium X pack also adds a panoramic glass roof that fills the rear seats with natural light. The driver benefits from a high driving position which is comfortable and gives great visibility of the road. You can fit 318 litres of luggage in the boot, and this expands to 1,386 litres when you fold the rear seats flat.
The B-MAX feels smooth and refined to drive, with excellent handling abilities that make urban journeys effortlessly easy. It is also extremely economical, with a range of capable and frugal engines. Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo petrol engine is available with 99bhp or 123bhp, and both are highly efficient. The more powerful variant comes with automatic start/stop technology and returns up to 57.7mpg, with CO2 emissions of 114g/km. Owners who opt for the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine will see excellent returns of up to 74.3mpg combined and CO2 emissions of just 98g/km.
The B-MAX is available in a choice of three trim levels: Studio, Zetec and Titanium. The Studio model comes with DAB radio and an audio system with MP3 and AUX inputs. Upgrade to the B-MAX Zetec variant and you get air conditioning and a quick-clear windscreen, and the steering wheel and gear knob are trimmed with leather. The range-topping Titanium model features electrically heated door mirrors, keyless ignition and cruise control.
There is also a wide range of optional extra features on offer, including leather upholstery. The City Pack includes rear parking sensors and the Titanium X pack adds heated seats and a panoramic glass sunroof.
The strength and structural integrity of the car is taken care of by the robust doors which are made from high-strength steel. Each Ford B-MAX model is equipped with Stability Control and Hill Start Assist as standard, along with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist. In the event of an accident, the driver, passenger, knee, side and curtain airbags inflate to protect all occupants from the impact.
