The Ford B-MAX is specifically designed to reduce the severity of accidents and will be available to lease or purchase with a whole host of smart and safe technologies.
Doors are reinforced with ultra-high-strength boron steel in key load-bearing areas. Ultra-high-strength steels account for 58 per cent of the body and door structure and in the event of a side impact, the door frames work together to absorb crash energy.
The B-MAX car features seven state-of-the-art airbags: driver and front-seat passenger airbags, 3D thorax side airbags, curtain airbags that run the entire length of the cabin and a driver’s knee airbag.
B-MAX is the first Ford to enable deactivation of the front passenger airbag through a standard instrument panel switch, for those carrying a rear-facing child seat.
The front seats have been specially designed with integrated seat belt and restraint systems, with seat structure and mounting points fabricated from high strength steels to ensure excellent crash protection.
There is also an Active City Stop technology on the B-MAX. This system monitors the road ahead and applies the brakes automatically if it detects a collision with a slow-moving or stationary vehicle.
B-MAX also features an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) – a braking and stability system that helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle under extreme conditions.
The all-new Ford B-MAX is among the most advanced small car technology in Europe and will be in UK dealerships by September.
A safe smart choice.
