Ford’s stylish new B-MAX is among Europe’s most technologically advanced small car. And with its winning combination of easy access, unique design and class-leading economy, it raises the benchmark in the city car sector…
B-MAX is tailor-made for congested urban roads and boasts best-in-class access thanks to Ford’s Easy Door Access System, featuring hinged front and sliding rear doors with integrated central body pillars.
Available with Ford’s latest generation petrol and diesel engines, B-MAX beats all rivals for fuel economy and CO2 emissions too. Its 1.0-litre EcoBoost 120PS petrol engine achieves 15 percent lower fuel consumption than its closest competitor.
The B-MAX makes driving in town easier and more enjoyable, thanks to advanced driving technologies and a host of features that you might be surprised to find in a car of its size. Add its unique door system and it meets all the varied demands of the modern driver.
Unrivalled Access with the Ford Easy Access Door System
Opening the front and sliding rear doors gives you an unobstructed 1.5m wide aperture on each side, making it easier to get in and get out. B-MAX’s unique system achieves this by cleverly concealing its central strengthening pillar within the doors, rather than having it fixed into the body side.
A quieter way to travel
To give you and your passengers a more relaxing journey, a range of measures have been taken to minimise noise and vibration from the engine, the road and the wind. In particular, the new easy-access door system has a sophisticated door seal system to eliminate wind noise.
Extra comfort with adjustable, heated seats
Whatever the conditions outside, you can be comfortable in a B-MAX. You can choose optional heated front seats, to keep you warm even in the winter. And, to make sure everyone is in the most relaxed position for travel.
The B-MAX has achieved excellent ratings in safety under the new more stringent Euro NCAP test due to its host of advanced safety features.
The vehicle’s security features are equally advanced, including Global Closing, with which you can open and close all the doors and electric windows remotely, using your key. (Thatcham category 1 alarm available with certain option packs).
Thanks to its double lock feature, if a thief manages to get into the B-MAX by breaking a window, they will still be unable to unlock the doors from the inside.
Ford SYNC® with Emergency Assistance and Active City Stop have both received a Euro NCAP Advanced reward: the highest given by Europe's leading independent safety organisation. The reward recognises only the most advanced avoidance, crash and post-crash technologies available in a car. And it's a measure of Ford's commitment to safety that across our range, we've now received a total of seven Euro NCAP Advanced rewards, all for innovations designed to protect you.
The innovative Active City Stop helps you soften, or even avoid, a collision in slow-moving traffic or at speeds up to 19 mph. If the system detects the car in front has unexpectedly stopped, it automatically applies the brakes.
If any of your tyres starts to lose pressure during your journey, the Deflation Detection System will warn you immediately, by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel. That way, you’ve the chance to stop safely and fix the problem.
The B-MAX is equipped with an advanced Intelligent Protection System (IPS), which coordinates a series of safety systems to offer maximum protection for you and your passengers.
As well as the rigid, impact-absorbing bodyshell, there is advanced seat and seat belt technology, to reduce the chance of injury in the event of an accident.
Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses any deviations from your chosen driving line, such as if you start to skid, and automatically corrects your road position, helping you keep control of the car. The technology also helps reduce stopping distances in an emergency.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) combine to ensure that your braking is more controlled.
Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) also helps the B-MAX achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. The system works by sensing how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increasing it, if necessary.(Integrated into ESP.)
