All-New Ford B-MAX Opens Doors to a Fresh Perspective on City Driving

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…

“The Ford B-MAX really challenges traditional small car thinking, and pioneers a concept not attempted by any other manufacturers,” said Stephen Odell, chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe. “It does things which other vehicles simply cannot do. We believe the Ford B-MAX will have a major impact on the market for compact cars.”

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.

Better connected than any vehicle in its class, B-MAX features Ford’s voice-activated, in-car connectivity system, SYNC, with Emergency Assistance, designed to assist the occupants to call for help in the event of a crash.

It also gets Ford’s Active City Stop system, another first for the compact car sector. This is designed to help motorists avoid low speed collisions with stationary or slower moving traffic in front. B-MAX comes equipped with seven airbags and features a front-end carefully engineered for optimised pedestrian protection.

Because B-MAX is only 11cm longer than the Fiesta five-door and a full 32cm shorter than the new C-MAX, it’s perfectly placed to meet fast-growing demand for downsized cars and offers excellent interior space which is able to carry loads of up to 2.35m in length.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
