COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Ford B-MAX has seen off closest rival Opel Meriva in a two car showdown staged by Denmark’s most popular tabloid newspaper, EkstraBladet.
B-MAX received special praise for its sporty driving dynamics, superior fuel economy, lower purchase price and comfortable seats.
Reporter Christian Schacht concludes: “If the journalist had to choose one of these cars to buy, it would without a doubt in his mind be the Ford B-Max 1.0 Ecoboost.”
Launched last year, B-MAX is tailor-made for congested urban roads and boasts best-in-class access thanks to Ford’s Easy Door Access System, featuring hinged front and sliding rear doors with integrated central body pillars.
Available with Ford’s latest generation petrol and diesel engines, B-MAX beats all rivals for fuel economy and CO2 emissions too. Its 1.0-litre EcoBoost 120PS petrol engine achieves 15 percent lower fuel consumption than its closest competitor.
In the first quarter of 2103, Ford sold 18,470 B-MAX across 19 countries in Europe.
