MAXIMUM SAFETY

All-round safety

The new B-MAX offers outstanding safety, achieving a five-star NCAP rating. The seven state-of-the-art airbags include driver and front-seat passenger airbags, a driver knee airbag, 3D Thorax side airbags and curtain airbags that run the entire length of the cabin.

New B-MAX's Intelligent Protection System

The new B-MAX’s body includes 55% high-strength steel and 26% ultrahigh-strength boron steel, which makes it lighter, stronger and stiffer, and an immensely rigid base upon which to attach the Ford Easy Access Door System. When closed, the reinforced front and rear doors overlap to create a rigid strengthening pillar, preventing them from opening in a side impact.

Electric power-assisted steering uses less power

 

The new B-MAX has electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) that automatically adjusts to suit the situation. So if you’re driving in the city — at low speeds or while parking — the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, giving you greater manoeuvrability. At higher speeds, like on the motorway, it will make the steering firmer to give you greater control and confidence. This innovative EPAS only activates when needed, so it uses less energy, thereby improving fuel economy further.

Maximum grip for greater control

 

Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. Using this information, it repeatedly balances the amount of power and braking delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road. Torque Vectoring Control is a cutting-edge technology that comes as standard.
