Interesting article on the B-max, based on the Fiesta.  It is a lot like a smaller 4-person C-max, but with sliding rear doors (which the author really likes).  Apparently it will soon become extinct.

That just about makes me cry. :cry: So sad. :sad:  Absolutely maddening!  :rant2:  What a wonderful little car - and now it will be gone - too bad.

If Ford would just make a Model E variant with that body design - just a bit bigger.

Way too many "me too" cars out there.

To summarize, Americans are stupid and can't make decisions, so don't give them many.

I've maintained that Ford should have brought over the body of the Grand C-Max for the C-Max Hybrid; it has the sliding doors, like the B-Max, and is about 6 inches longer than our current C-Max (but otherwise the same dimensions). Of course, they should have left the third row seats out.

Great article, and yes another great car bites the dust, sad indeed.  Sadder still for us will be the demise of our C-Max.  Hope the Model E strikes a new favorable chord.
