With a best in-class safety rating and a vast range of practical features, the five-seater Tourneo Connect has justifiably been praised as one of the best people-movers on the road.
Not all people carriers can claim to have a stylish look, but Ford's designers have achieved this with the Tourneo Connect. Its streamlined, aerodynamic frame allows the model to slice through the air, leading to better fuel-economy and overall performance. In addition to a range of head-turning high-tech features, the Tourneo Connect gets next-generation lights offering an exceptionally clear view of the road ahead. Inside the spacious and hard-wearing interior, there's enough room to transport five or seven people (depending on the model you go for), as well as everything from luggage to sports equipment and plenty more. The Tourneo Connect range also includes a host of interior trims to make the vehicle your own.
You get a choice of petrol or diesel engines in both automatic and manual variants when buying new, and each impresses. The line-up starts with an entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol unit with six-speed transmission, delivering up to 170Nm of torque. That's raised to 240Nm with the 1.6-litre EcoBoost and six-speed automatic transmission. Those preferring diesel can choose from three frugal 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi units at various power levels. As with all of Ford's vans, the engines are equipped with state-of-the-art efficiency technology to cut costs and bolster performance. As well as the standard rage of systems, select engines come with an optional Fuel Economy package which includes auto start/stop, Active Grille Shutter, Smart Regenerative Charging and a Battery Management System.
In addition to the engines presented, the Tourneo Connect arrives with three generous trims with differing levels of specification. The Style trim includes all the main features fitted as standard, and you can upgrade to the Zetec model for further comfort, technology and style. At the top of the range, the Titanium includes the very best of the aforementioned two trims in addition to a number of exclusive cutting-edge features.
