Ford B-Max to be unveiled in Barcelona on February 27 image

Ford has recently announced that the wraps will come off the new B-Max on February 27, in Barcelona, at the 2012 Mobile World Congress.

Unveiling the Ford B-Max at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, on February 27, will mark a first time when a car has been unveiled at the leading mobile industry event, but even if the model will become “visible” sooner than we expected, the people carrier developed in Craiova, Romania, will still be officially presented to the public at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show, on the 6th of March.

As a reminder, the new Ford B-Max is coming with the B-pillars integrated into the sliding doors and this allows 1.5 meter long openings, while the flat-folding seats are offering the model a class-leading cabin space. The Ford B-Max is coming with some interesting features such as Bluetooth, voice control, keyless entry or the panoramic sunroof, but all of these will be available in top-spec models only.

Even if there is no official word on this yet, the new Ford B-MAX is expected to come with the company’s new 1.0 liter three-cylinder direct injection EcoBoost turbo engine too, which will be available in two outputs, 98 and 123 BHP, along with a wide range of diesel units. 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.
