2012 Ford B-Max prices announced

Ford B-Max prices have been confirmed, with the entry-level 1.4 Studio model costing from 12,995.

The B-Max comes with a choice of four petrol engines, including a new three-cylinder 1.0-litre Ecoboost unit with either 99 or 119bhp, and two diesels a new 1.5 TDCi and a 1.6 TDCi.

Fitted with the 1.0T 120 Ecoboost with engine start-stop, the B-Max averages 57.6mpg and emits 114g/km of carbon dioxide.

The B-Max 1.5 TDCi, meanwhile, averages 68.9mpg and emits 109g/km.

The Studio model comes with stability control, a tyre-pressure warning system, electric windows and door mirrors and Ford's Easyfuel capless refueling system.

B-Max Zetec versions get alloy wheels, LED running lights, front foglights, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, air-conditioning, heated windscreen, DAB radio with USB connection, Bluetooth and Thatcham alarm.

At launch, buyers will get Ford SYNCH included, however thereafter it will become a 250 option. SYNCH is a voice-activated in-car connectivity system that can help occupants place a call to the emergency services in the event of a crash. It also can read text messages aloud from your phone.

Buyers also get the choice of three petrol engines and one diesel with Zetec versions and prices start at 15,600 for the 1.4 90 model.

Top-spec Titanium versions come with driver and centre rear armrests, cruise control, climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, 16-inch alloys and an upgraded stereo system.

The Ford B-Max is available to order now, with deliveries expected in September.
