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 3®* you can control your music and phone, with simple voice commands – SYNC 3® 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.

Remarkable access from ingenious design
The ingenious door system gives you class-leading access to its interior space. Combined with a spacious, yet exceptionally refined interior, this sets the B-MAX apart from others in the category.
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 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
Urban driving made pleasurable
The B-MAX makes driving in town easier and more enjoyable, thanks to advanced driving technologies and a host of features that you might be surprised to find in a car of its size. Add its unique door system and it meets all the varied demands of the modern driver. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Impressive power and efficiency
The B-MAX is available with an extensive range of advanced petrol and diesel engines and a choice of gearbox types. But there is one new option that stands out for delivering exceptional power and torque for its size, along with impressive fuel economy – the EcoBoost 1.0 litre petrol engine.
The B-MAX is available with a revolutionary 1.0 litre engine which, at 100PS, 120PS & the now new 125PS, delivers the power of a 1.6 litre. Yet it still manages to consume 20% less fuel than other equivalent petrol engines. In fact, its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are more like a diesel’s.
To achieve this, it has been fundamentally re-engineered – a faster engine warm-up time and reduced friction are just a couple of improvements. As well as its power and economy, you’ll enjoy its unique sound and sporty feel. Alongside the new EcoBoost engine, the B-MAX is available with the entry level 1.4 litre Duratec engine, producing 90 PS, and the 1.6 Ti-VCT – a smooth, efficient option producing 105 PS with PowerShift gearbox.
Two diesel engines which deliver superior efficiency. The efficient 1.6 TDCi, produces 95 PS and achieves a class-leading 4.0l/100km and brings C02 emission levels to just 104g/km. Alternatively, the economical 1.5 TDCi produces 75 PS and keeps fuel consumption at a low level of 4.1l/100km and brings C02 emission levels to just 109g/km.
In conjunction with its range of highly efficient petrol and diesel engines, the B-MAX has a number of advanced features designed to enhance fuel economy. Use up to 10% less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop - when the B-MAX is stationary, such as at traffic lights or idling in a queue, this technology automatically switches off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the fan, headlights and radio). Then it restarts, the moment you're ready to move. It's ideal if you do most of your driving in town, as it can cut your fuel consumption by 10% (urban cycle) or by 5% in mixed driving conditions. Unlike conventional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it, and when it’s most economical to do so.
A light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. The innovative Ford Eco Mode system continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption, including: speed, gear shifting, anticipation levels, plus the proportion of short to long trips. Smart software then advises you on how to improve your fuel economy, according to your unique driving style.
One of Ford's safest cars so far
The B-MAX has achieved excellent ratings in safety under the new more stringent Euro NCAP test due to its host of advanced safety features.
The vehicle’s security features are equally advanced, including Global Closing, with which you can open and close all the doors and electric windows remotely, using your key. (Thatcham category 1 alarm available with certain option packs).
Thanks to its double lock feature, if a thief manages to get into the B-MAX by breaking a window, they will still be unable to unlock the doors from the inside.
A Euro NCAP Advanced reward, for keeping you safe.
Ford SYNC 3® with Emergency Assistance and Active City Stop have both received a Euro NCAP Advanced reward: the highest given by Europe's leading independent safety organisation.
The reward recognises only the most advanced avoidance, crash and post-crash technologies available in a car. And it's a measure of Ford's commitment to safety that across our range, we've now received a total of seven Euro NCAP Advanced rewards, all for innovations designed to protect you.
The B-MAX has been awarded the highest possible five-star safety rating by independent crash test authority Euro NCAP, scoring particularly highly for overall and adult protection.
Both front and rear passengers benefit from seven airbags and the Ultra-high-strength steel as well as the front-end have been carefully engineered for optimised pedestrian protection.
Only vehicles offering all-round protection can be awarded a five-star rating and Ford B-MAX has achieved this through outstanding engineering, innovative design and smart technologies.
