Ford released the first official image of the production version of B-MAX compact multi-activity vehicle ahead of its premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The car was first revealed at last year’s Geneva show as a concept, and now it comes back in full production form, promising to set new standards in terms of functionality, design and technology in this class. We do believe Ford with those claims, because we’ve seen the new Focus.
The B-MAX has a new kind of door construction with the center pillars integrated into the doors themselves. That results in wide-open access for drivers, passengers and luggage in spite of the car’s rather compact dimensions.It’ll also offer flexible-seating and class-leading load-space, as well as superior craftsmanship.
The list of engines and transmissions will be confirmed closer to launch later this year, but the lineup will include Ford’s new 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, and Duratec TDCi diesels.
