The Ford Transit Connect is a van that disproves the notion that a commercial vehicle can be either stylish or practical but not both. The bold exterior styling projects a professional and contemporary image to be proud of, and the interior offers a degree of comfort and convenience to match any people carrier.
The Transit Connect is available with a short or long wheelbase. The streamlined shape improves performance and simultaneously reduces your fuel bill. Security is also paramount, with anti-tamper locks, two high-level alarm options and an advanced key fob that cannot be copied – Ford understands that protecting your cargo protects your business.
The ergonomics of the Connect's interior are like a car, with a driver-focussed dash and a host of technologies designed for your comfort and convenience. Parking sensors and hands-free functionality for your mobile phone take the stress out of driving, and keep your focus on the road.
For more versatility, The Transit Connect Kombi offers a Flexible Rear Seating System that incorporates a flat folding second row of seats and a 50/50 split folding third row of seats.
Your Connect comes with a choice of two efficient, 1.5 litre TDCi diesel engines, or the award winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol unit. The EcoBoost unit delivers all the performance of a conventional 1.6 litre engine, but with 24% better fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 129g/km. Whichever engine you chose, you'll get a lively, responsive drive that saves on fuel and road tax.
Systems like the advanced Traction Control System and Load Adaptive Control keep you firmly planted on the road, helping to keep you safe along with other road users and pedestrians.
In the short wheelbase guise, the Transit Connect has an overall length of 4.4 metres and a load box volume of 3,000 litres. The long wheelbase affords an overall length of 4.8 metres and a volume of 3,600 litres. With an impressive maximum payload of 1,000kg and a towing capability of 1,200kg, you'll be able to carry everything and everyone you need.
Load through is up to 3.4 metres, and the roof height of the van is 1.86 metres accommodating even the most bulky items.
