The Ford B-Max is a mini MPV with low running costs and its popularity is helped with high equipment and comfort levels. The car also has a unique door arrangement.
There's a range of very good diesel and petrol engines; the most frugal petrol unit is a 1.0 litre Eco-Boost unit. It should return around 56 mpg and still offer decent performance levels. For also offers its B-Max with a 1.4 petrol unit which offers more power while returning 47mpg.
Of the diesel engines, there's an excellent 1.5 litre TDCi which should return 69 mpg while having emissions of 109g/km. There's also a 1.6 litre TDCi and drivers should expect economy of 71 mpg.
The mini MPV segment is a quickly growing area for carmakers and the Ford B-Max stands out from the crowd by having a roomy cabin which is accessed via sliding rear doors with no central beam so the entrance is wide. This helps to make the car an ideal choice for families, particularly those with young children. There's also a large boot and the seats are easily folded flat to create a large carrying space.
The B-Max grips the road well and offers a comfortable and enjoyable drive. It performs particularly well around town where it is agile and small enough to offer a rewarding drive. The cabin itself is plenty of space thanks to the tall stance of the vehicle and the quality of the trim is excellent.
There's a good range of standard equipment though the best offerings are found further up the trim levels which includes air conditioning, alloy wheels, a heated windscreen and a child observation mirror. There's also a good range of safety kit including electronic stability control, tyre pressure monitoring and emergency braking assistance.
Essentially, the Ford B-Max is a versatile mini MPV that is ideal as a family car. There's plenty of room on board and the unusual door arrangement makes it a practical choice too.
