2012 Geneva Motor Show: Ford Launches B-Max

Ford launched the B-Max at the Geneva Motor Show today. Comparisons with the Peugeot’s 1007 apart, the B-Max seems to be more of a Fiesta-based S-Max but with twin sliding rear doors. it may be noted that similar set of sliding doors look quite odd on the larger C-Max but owing to the curved roof shape and smart rear wings, it is a completely different story on the B-Max. The car is more than 4 metres in length but there is a fair possibility of the manufacturer brining a sub-4 metre version of this car to India to battle it out against Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and GM Enjoy. The car has a 397 litre boot that can be expanded to 1000 litres on folding the rear seats. Prices for the B-Max will start at £12,995 when the car goes on sale in September. The mid variant will come with a price tag of £15,000 and top-model model will go for about £18,000. Engines options will include a 1.4-litre petrol and 1.6-litre turbodiesel. However, come November and the B-Max will be available with the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder EcoBoost engine seen on the EcoSport.
