The Ford Transit Connect has been produced since 1965. Ford’s van range has grown extensively in the last few years, with the ‘Transit’ being the largest van in the range. The Connect benefits from the brands reputation as a dominant van manufacturer and being a part of the Transit line means the series is up there with the best in class. As a whole, the vehicle contains features that are similar to the brands passenger car range, so the driving experience holds a car- like refinement. Along with a petrol option, the van offers a strong 1.5 litre TDCi diesel motor that delivers a composed and smooth performance. In all, the Ford Transit Connect resides near the top of the compact van class with its reliable capabilities and high performance value.
