Ford B-Max Review
Newly on sale, the much-anticipated B-MAX is Ford’s rather clever answer to vehicle access. Taking the flexibility of an MPV and combining it with the compact size of a city hatchback, the new model offers unparalleled accessibility for those with young families.
The B-MAX does away with the centre pillar and has a sliding rear door that provides a 150cm opening to the back of the car. In addition, the elevated driving position means that in addition to excellent all round visibility, entry to and exit from the vehicle are made easier for older buyers.
Ford has done a good job of ensuring the performance and handling you’d expect from the B-MAX isn’t compromised. Accurate steering and great road-holding make this a fun vehicle to drive, while the supple suspension delivers a comfortable ride for all. All engine options offer an economical drive, with the Ecoboost unit being the range’s best, returning 55.4mpg and 119g.km of CO2.
With a comfy, high quality interior featuring a DAB radio with MP3 compatibility as standard, as well as a host of options to enhance your drive, the new Ford B-MAX is a great way to get about when you have a family to think about.
