Ford B Max
The Ford B-MAX has been developed especially for the urban driver. While compact in size, its ingenious, easy-access door system gives you a 1.5m wide aperture to a spacious and refined interior.
Alongside its unique design, the B-MAX has a multitude of technologies to make driving easier, more enjoyable and more efficient. For example, Active City Stop* helps prevent collisions in slow-moving traffic, by automatically braking for you, if necessary. With Ford SYNC® you can control your music and phone, with simple voice commands – SYNC® can even read out your text messages. A revolutionary 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine delivers the power of a 1.6, with outstanding fuel economy.
The B-MAX has a unique body design. With the doors open, you’ll notice that the structural pillars, which usually divide the front and back of a car, have been cleverly integrated into the doors themselves. This means there are no obstructions, making access effortless.
The B-MAX brakes for you, to avoid low speed collisions
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.
Extra control during hill starts
Hill Start Assist stops you rolling backwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces. (Hill start assist is not available with the 1.4 litre petrol engine)
Easier reversing with a Rear View Camera
Bollards, low walls, kids playing… the Rear View Camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the display on your dashboard. As well as showing you things you might miss, it helps you park, by displaying virtual lines to guide you into the smallest space. For added convenience, the Rear View Camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.
