The cabin of the B-Max is driver-focused. The seats are very supportive, although the driving position does feel very high. The steering wheel has a lot of adjustment and all of the controls are laid out in a sensible manner. The manual gearbox has a fairly long throw, but is slick in operation and placed well ergonomically. There’s loads of headroom available, and even taller drivers aren’t going to feel too cramped.

To live with, Ford B-Max comfort levels are fairly high. The ride is a little firm, but it does soak up bumps and pot holes in a measured fashion. The seats are very supportive up front, while the rear will seat two adults easily. Three could be shoe-horned in, but not for extended periods of time. Road, wind and tyre noise is kept down to a sensible level, while body-roll is evident but not as extreme as some rivals.
