Safety and Security

The B-MAX has been awarded the highest possible five-star safety rating by independent crash test authority Euro NCAP, scoring particularly highly for overall and adult protection. Both front and rear passengers benefit from seven airbags and the Ultra-high-strength steel as well as the front-end have been carefully engineered for optimised protection. Only vehicles offering all-round protection can be awarded a five-star rating and Ford B-MAX has achieved this through outstanding engineering, innovative design and smart technologies.

To help avoid low speed collisions

The innovative Active City Stop helps the driver avoid a collision in slow-moving traffic or at speeds up to 30mph. It does this by continually measuring the distance to the vehicle in front when it is within a near range. If the system detects the vehicle in front has unexpectedly reduced speed, it automatically applies the brakes.
