Which used Ford B-Max hatchback should I buy?
As previously stated, the 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrol engines are rather expensive to run (although if you want an automatic, your choice is limited to the 1.6), and the diesel only makes sense if you cover lots of miles. We’d therefore recommend going for the 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol in mid-range 123bhp form. It's fast enough for town and country use, plus it still gets decent fuel economy.
Entry-level Studio trim misses out on many essentials. Top-end Titanium and Titanium X can be expensive and a family car with part-leather seats is asking for trouble, so go for Zetec for the best blend of equipment and value.
