ENGLISH DESCRIPTION (PARA ESPAÑOL VER MÁS ABAJO)
Sit inside the Tourneo Connect and the sheer volume of space around you is conspicuous but it’s nevertheless nimble and car-like to drive.
Based on an adaption of the components, the Tourneo is refined on the road, with a comfortable suspension setup that absorbs most road conditions impressively.
the steering is accurate and gives a positive amount of feeling through the wheel, giving a sense of being attached to what the Tourneo’s doing.
Despite that cavernous interior volume and large rear-view mirrors, outside noise suppression is uncannily good, ensuring a calm interior environment.
The new Ford Tourneo Connect achieved a full five star rating during its round of EuroNCAP tests.
All versions have high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel used in key areas of their construction, while anti-lock brakes(ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standardised. Additionally, day running lights and enormous tail lamps increase the Tourneo’s visibility to other road users.
Highly visible seat belt reminders for all seats prompt everyone to buckle up, while front and side curtain airbags help protect occupants in the event of an accident.
Those carrying younger passengers will be pleased to note that the outer two rear seat positions have ISOFIX mountings for child restraints.
Drivers of all sizes are bound to be able to get comfortable at the wheel of the Ford Transit Connect.
Not only is the driver’s seat multi-adjustable - on four planes on Style models and eight on the higher trims - the steering wheel adjusts for reach and rake and the large door mirrors have a split view offering great visibility.
All the buttons, knobs and dials work with satisfying actions though and the overall feel remains more car than van-like. Anyone moving to the Tourneo Connect through circumstance rather than choice will be pleasantly surprised.
There’s plenty of space for storing odds and ends too, with deep door bins, capable of holding 1.5-litre bottles, lidded gloveboxes, deep storage shelf above the windscreen and cupholders and space for other detritus in the centre console.
