The Ford B-MAX is an easily accessible and eminently practical vehicle that is based upon the Fiesta but provides a lot more interior space. This smart, compact MPV is good to drive too and is available in Studio, Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X trim levels.
With its lack of a B-pillar and its sliding doors, the B-MAX makes entry and exit very simple. This people carrier also features power-operated door mirrors (complete with integrated indicators), daytime running lights and courtesy-delay headlights. Attractive as well as versatile, the vehicle’s front fascia sports a chrome-trimmed front grille and a body-coloured bumper.
Zetec grades feature 15-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps and more body-coloured elements.
A roomy and solidly built five-person cabin comes with a number of standard features, including adjustable seating for front-row occupants. The driver further benefits from a multi-function three-spoke steering wheel which also offers rake-and-reach adjustability. Also included are central locking (with two flip keys) and power-operated front and rear windows. A 318-litre boot incorporates a handy variable load floor. If you need more cargo space, simply fold the rear seats to provide as much as 1,386 litres of storage capacity.
Zetec grades add leather trims for steering wheel and gearshift knob, front-compartment ambient lighting and a child-observation mirror.
A 1.4-litre 89bhp petrol engine comes with entry-level Studio grades, offering up to 47.1mpg and a 139g/km CO2 emissions figure.
The most fuel-efficient option available for the B-MAX is a 1.5-litre 75bhp (or 94bhp) diesel unit.
This returns as much as 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 98g/km, and is available with Zetec grades and above. Ford’s Easy Fuel capless system is included with all models.
The B-MAX’s six-speaker sound system features DAB digital radio and a CD player, both of which can be operated using the vehicle’s remote audio control. AUX connectivity is included too.
Zetec grades add USB ports, Ford SYNC (with Emergency Assistance) and MyKey technology.
The B-MAX has been endorsed by Euro NCAP with a five-star rating, and features driver aids such as Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Electronic Stability Control. Passive safety elements include seatbelt reminders, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, ISOFIX mountings, a collapsible steering column and multiple airbags.
