Beelow we report an excerpt from the official Ford’s release that describes the exterior design of the car.

Ford B-MAX Design Sketch The vehicle’s front-end features a bold new interpretation of Ford’s signature trapezoidal grille, with five strong horizontal grille elements picked out in a bright chrome finish.

Beneath this a slimmer lower grille, finished in gloss black, adds visual stability to the front- end, and emphasizes the car’s sporty wide stance.

Other distinctive kinetic design elements include strong headlamp graphics, the muscular shoulder line with its powerful undercut, a characteristic window line with its kick-up behind the rear doors, and the prominent wheel lips.

The bold three-dimensional surfacing of the body sides helps to avoid the tall, blocky look which is common in this class of vehicle, and includes a unique new rocker treatment, with a stylish ‘zig-zag’ form on the rear doors.

With its distinctive window graphic, wraparound tailgate glass, and slim tail lamps split by the tailgate, the rear of the B-MAX is closely reminiscent of the S-MAX. Strong horizontal feature lines help to emphasis the vehicle’s wide and confident stance.

The B-MAX is finished in Burnished Glow, a warm and contemporary metallic brown shade. The paintwork is complemented by striking 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, which have a Y-shaped spoke pattern derived from a signature S-MAX wheel design.
