The Focus-derived Transit Connect is a compact panel van which has been produced by Ford Europe since 2002. The Transit Connect first arrived as a replacement to models in the outgoing Courier van ranges, and has since been produced over two successful generations. The latest second generation model was unveiled in 2012 and received subsequent updates in 2015 to keep its appeal fresh in the ever-crowded van market. Rivals like the Volkswagen Caddy and Citroen Berlingo are well-established and popular, but the Transit Connect offers unbeatable versatility and the best fuel economy figures within its class.
Power in the Transit Connect will be in the most part derived from the Ford 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, available in 74bhp, 94bhp and 113bhp states of tune. There is however the interesting possibility of turbocharged petrol power in the Transit Connect, a fairly unusual prospect in this class, thanks to the addition of the 99bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost unit to the range- this engine is unlikely to account for many sales, but it is a sufficient performer for those only requiring their van for light-duty urban use. Most buyers will opt for the two lower powered diesels, but the use of the latest technology means that economy and emissions figures are impressive across the board. Claimed fuel economy figures range from 50.4mpg up to a fantastic 70.6mpg, and CO2 emissions are as low as 99g/km.
In line with other models in the Transit range the Connect is available in two load lengths, and can also be specified in fully-windowed 'Kombi' or five-seat 'Double Cab' configurations. Depending on wheelbase the load length ranges from 1,753mm to 2,153mm and total volume measures between 2.9m3 and 3.6m3, so the Transit Connect is far-reaching with whom it caters to. Expect the latest high-tech safety equipment in the Transit Connect too, which can be specified to include the likes of Ford's Active City Stop and Trailer Sway Control. The interior can also be kitted out across the Base, Trend and Limited trim levels, making the cabin more comfortable and well-equipped than ever.
The overall Ford Transit Connect package is difficult to find fault with, and incorporates fantastically efficient engines and all the practicality you could ever need in a compact panel van. Given its admirable economy and safety credentials it is not hard to see why the Transit Connect is one of the most popular vans on the UK market.
