Designed with ease of access firmly in mind, the wonderfully practical Ford B-MAX is a compact people carrier that is ideally suited to the urban environment. Combining clever use of space with sleek good looks and Ford's latest technology, it is not only one of the most accessible vehicles on the market, but also one of the most pleasing to own.
The low ride height of the B-MAX combines with sweeping contours to produce an impressively sleek appearance. A high-gloss front grille with striking chrome surround is flanked by automatic headlights to create a unique look.
At the rear of this model is an easy-access boot with an attractive colour-coded rear spoiler. But it is the side profile of the Ford B-MAX that really stands out, thanks to its sliding doors and an opening that is twice as large as in a standard hatchback.
It could be said that the Ford B-MAX is all about the interior. Despite the car's compact dimensions, accessibility is one of the model's main features with a wide side opening that offers simple entry into the spacious and refined interior. With structural pillars integrated into the doors access is effortless, ensuring you'll have no problems loading either the family or bulky cargo.
But it's not just the pillarless design that creates a considerable sense of freedom inside the Ford B-MAX; its full-length, panoramic roof also floods the interior with light and contributes to the airy environment. This is even more apparent when the front and rear passenger seats are folded flat to create a 2.35-metre long load space.
Six powertrain options are available, including Ford's revolutionary 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, capable of delivering outstanding fuel economy of up to 57.7mpg combined and the equivalent power of a 1.6-litre engine. Five alternative power options are available, including the entry-level 1.4-litre Duratec engine, and the 1.6-litre TDCi diesel, capable of 70.6mpg combined while producing CO2 emissions of just 104g/km.
Numerous driver aids and safety features are found across the range, from Emergency Brake Assist and Ford's Electronic Stability Programme, to Active City Stop which can help prevent collisions in urban environments through the use of sensors and cameras.
