The Transit Connect seamlessly blends practicality and sharp styling to produce a van that offers a comfortable cabin, good ride quality and superb fuel efficiency. This adaptable light commercial vehicle is available in a number of configurations and comes in Base, Limited and Trend trim levels.
This attractive car-derived van comes with a number of useful features, such as blind-spot-eliminating door mirrors, a Quickclear heated windscreen and front and rear towing hooks.
A kerbside load door provides optional access to the vehicle’s load bay, in addition to hinged rear doors. External illumination includes daytime running lights, rear fog lamps and a high-mounted brake light.
The Transit Connect features two seats, including a dual passenger position. The driver benefits from adjustable seating and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, power-operated front windows (one-touch on the driver’s side) and air-conditioning. Stowage provision comprises an instrument panel compartment (featuring a 12-volt socket), overhead storage and dual cup-holders.
The vehicle possesses a moveable ISO/DIN-compliant full-steel bulkhead, DIN-compliant tie-down hooks and side mounting points. Depending on which van option you choose, maximum cargo volume (including the bulkhead) varies from 1,600 litres to 3,600 litres.
Transit Connect models (with a 2,300-litre cargo capacity) feature a 1.0-litre 99bhp petrol engine. Paired with six-speed manual transmission, this delivers up to 50.4mpg and a 129g/km CO2 emission figure.
Also available with the same model is a 1.5-litre 74bhp diesel unit. Paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, this returns as much as 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 120g/km. Ford’s Easy Fuel capless system is standard across the range.
A DAB digital radio (operable via steering wheel-mounted audio controls), MP3 compatibility and Bluetooth and USB connectivity are included as standard.
A number of standard safety features include Anti-lock Braking System (with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Electronic Stability Programme), Emergency Brake Warning, Emergency Brake Assist and Hill-start Assist.
The vehicle also features auto-relocking doors, remote central locking, an immobiliser and Passive Anti-Theft System.
