FORD B-MAX from €13,900
Introducing the 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.

* Active City Stop and SYNC® are optional features available at extra cost.
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 available with most engine options.
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.
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
Optional Parking Distance Sensors help you judge the distance between your car and an obstacle, in front or behind you. They set off an audible warning that intensifies, the closer you get. The feature is designed to help you park quickly and confidently.
Maximum grip for greater control
Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. Using this information, it repeatedly balances the amount of power and braking delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road. Torque Vectoring Control is a cutting-edge technology that comes as standard.
Power-assisted steering that uses less power
The B-MAX has electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) that automatically adjusts to suit the situation. So if you're driving in the city, at low speeds, or parking, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier to give you greater manoeuvrability. And at higher speeds (on the motorway, for example) it will make the steering firmer to give you greater control and confidence. This innovative EPAS only activates when needed, so it uses less energy, further improving fuel economy.
Cruise control makes longer drives more relaxed
If you're on the motorway, you can set the speed, using steering wheel-mounted toggles. The system then maintains that speed, so there's no need to keep your foot on the accelerator. To go faster or slower, you simply use the same manual controls.
Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop
The B-MAX has an auto-start-stop for EcoBoost engines which means the system will automatically shut down when the vehicle is idle, at a red light for example. When the driver is ready to move off the engine will restart, convenient and fuel efficient. With 114grams, the B-Max has a Best In Class level of CO2 emissions and a Best in Class Fuel efficiency of 4.9l 100/km.
The refined interior of the B-MAX has an elegant, spacious design with high quality materials, subtle colour contrasts and chrome detailing. And with a full-length, panoramic roof which floods the interior with natural light, it creates a sophisticated environment for both driver and passengers.
For added convenience, the rear and front passenger seats fold flat, giving you an unprecedented load space of up to 2.35m in length.
