Ford B-MAX revealed ahead of Geneva debut image

Ford has recently released the first official pictures with the production version of the B-MAX, ahead of its 2012 Geneva Motor Show debut.

The new Ford B-MAX is now making it appearance as a full production version a full year after the model has been introduced as a concept, and since then, a lot of things have changed. According to the car manufacturer, the B-pillars of the vehicle are integrated into the sliding doors and this allows 1.5 meter long openings, while the flat-folding seats are offering the B-MAX a class-leading cabin space. The model has been fitted with some interesting “items” too, like voice control, Bluetooth, keyless entry or panoramic sunroof, but all of these are available only in top-sped models.

“The B-MAX combines an exciting, innovative design with features that only previously have been found in bigger cars. It’s a brand new car that responds to the needs of an increasing number of customers who want much more from their small cars”, said the chairman and CEO of Ford Europe, Stephen Odell.

The B-MAX will be the first Ford model to be made at the company’s new plant in Craiova, Romania, and its starting price is expected to be set at 12.000 GBP.
