Ford B-MAX Coming To South Africa

The new Ford B-MAX,  is scheduled for launch in South Africa in the third quarter of this year.

B-MAX is a Ford B-platform car, the same as the Fiesta.

They call it a… wait for it… MAV.  Multi Activity Vehicle. What next?

“The Ford B-MAX really challenges traditional small car thinking,” says Tracey Delate, General Marketing Manager at Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA). “Its ingenious design opens the doors – quite literally – to exciting new ideas about what’s possible with a compact vehicle.”

The car uses Ford’s brilliant 1.0 litre three cylinder ‘EcoBoost’ petrol engine. It is a really good little engine delivering a big punch.

A fancy combo door system seems to be the marketing team’s pride and joy. The front door swings open while the rear one slides and, look ma; no B pillar. Just a moerse big door space. Not sure why its needed.

Seems pretty cool. Looks like a MPV to me. Like a mini Espace.

Road test to follow when we get our hands on one.
