The Ford B-MAX will bring a unique Easy Access Door System with ingenious hinged front doors and sliding rear doors. These are integrated with the central body pillars to provide unrivalled access for passengers and luggage.


It will be powered by an engine range including a new 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and a 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine, both of which will offer class-leading fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
