Ford's UK division has announced that the new B-MAX has a starting price of 12,995 pounds.

Built in Romania, the Ford B-MAX is scheduled to go on sale in United Kingdom this September for a base price of 12,995 pounds. Customers will be able to choose from the 3-cylinder 1.0-liter EcoBoost, 1.4- and 1.6-liter gasoline engines, along with 1.5- and 1.6-liter Duratorq diesels. The new B-MAX is offered in three trim levels: Studio, Zetec and Titanium.

With the small 1.0-liter engine, the Ford B-MAX can return 55.4 mpg UK or 57.7 mpg UK for the models fitted with the stop/start system, with CO2 emissions standing at 119 g/km and 114 g/km, respectively. The most frugal and eco-friendly version of the car is the one fitted with the aforementioned 1.6-liter Duratorq TDCi engine that returns 70.6 mpg UK and emits just 104 g/km of CO2. This power unit can be ordered exclusively for the Titanium trim level. All engines are linked to a five-speed manual transmission, with the exception of the 1.6-liter gasoline unit that gets a six-speed Powershift automatic transmission.

The entry-level B-MAX is offered with "one hand one motion" flat rear seats, DAB and fold-flat passenger seat. Mid-range models begin from 15,600 pounds and bring LED daytime running lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, leather-trimmed gear knob and steering wheel, along with chrome finishes for the window and grille surrounds. As for the B-MAX Titanium, this is equipped with 16-inch alloys, uprated stereo with multi-function display, rain-sensing lights and windscreen wipers, plus cruise control.
