The all-new Ford Transit Connect
The new Ford Transit Connect is an incredibly flexible and versatile van for multi-tasking drivers. It’s ideal as both a working vehicle and a spacious family model – pop your tools and equipment in the generous load space for the day, and then swing by the school gates to fit little ones in up to two rows of secure cabin seats. It’s also available in a range of heights and wheelbase lengths, so you can pick out the size of van that best suits your needs. With the longest wheelbase, the Transit Connect can safely transport nearly a ton of payload within the impressive 4.3 cubic metres of load space.
On the outside, the Ford is compact yet confident, with a purposeful look and some nifty handling for city traffic. To access the roomy interior, simply slide open the rear side door and load up the cabin – rubber floors, six “D” load rings and interior lighting are all there to help you work. If you’re travelling solo from one job to the next, the rear rows and front passenger seat can all fold down to make more room, and they pop back up quickly when it’s time to pick up the family.
The vehicle is also incredibly safe, just as you’d expect from a Ford. Every passenger is kept secure by inertia reel seatbelts, and the van is fitted with ESP to respond quickly should you need to suddenly turn or brake. To keep your cargo and tools safe whilst you’ve gone home for the night, the Transit Connect also uses Ford’s Safeguard Passive Anti-Theft System, and the bonnet is fully lockable for your peace of mind.
All versions of the Transit Connect are kitted out with a confident 1.8-litre Duratorq diesel engine. Diesel models tend to produce higher levels of fuel economy, and the van is no exception – thanks to the built-in vaporiser Diesel Particulate Filter, the model saves on fuel by delivering up to 47.1 combined MPG and has an impressively low CO2 output.
