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 front seats have been specially designed with integrated seat belt and restraint systems, with seat structure and mounting points fabricated from high [...]
