A new competior for the Opel Meriva is in town. As expected, we’re talking about Ford B-Max, a car that was unveiled, in concept form, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, providing an early preview of exciting innovations from Ford in the European small car market.
Well, today we can show you the very first spy photos of the baby brother to the C-Max, during testing in Germany. And as we can see it looks very close to the concept that Ford showed us at the Geneva Car Show earlier this year. The B-Max has also kept the rear sliding doors that make it really practical at narrow parking places. A feature all parents with kids will appreciate.
Based on the Ford Fiesta platform, the B-Max will be just about 11 cm longer then the Fiesta. The car maker has said that one of the engine options in the B-Max will be a 1.0 liter three cylinder EcoBoost engine with both direct injection and turbo.
More details are on the road, so stay tuned. In the meantime you can check out our photogallery below.
