With up to 16 seat configurations available, the new Ford Tourneo Connect is ideal as a spacious family vehicle; its easy accessibility, stable driving platform and huge storage space also makes it an excellent choice for Motability customers who require mobility aids. This enormously versatile people carrier can be explored in more detail at the think ford dealerships in Bracknell, Farnborough, Guildford and Wokingham.
The streamlined, aerodynamic design is both aesthetically pleasing and reduces drag, increasing performance and efficiency. The low turning circle of 11.3 metres, meanwhile, enables quick and easy manoeuvring in any environment. A choice of 10 exterior paint choices, along with a choice of alloy wheels, only enhances the fresh new look of this latest Tourneo.
The interior has been designed to deal with all the demands of transporting a full complement of passengers, whilst providing enough space for large amounts of luggage and provisions.
There is more than enough room for five in the standard model (or seven in the Grand Tourneo Connect). The enormous maximum rear loadspace of 2,410 litres (2,761 litres in the Grand edition) gives you plenty of space for bikes, buggies, sports equipment, wheelchairs, or whatever else you need to transport. Adjustable seats mean you can easily and quickly adjust the space to meet your requirements – and if necessary, a maximum towing capacity of up to 1,200kg enables even more items to be carried in a trailer.
Buyers are presented with a choice of diesel or petrol engines with the Tourneo Connect – each of which offers ample power as well as low fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
The 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, supplies 100PS and 170Nm of torque whilst achieving CO2 output of just 129g/km. The 1.6-litre diesel boasts 95PS or 115PS, and also return impressively low fuel consumption and emissions figures due to their Automatic start/stop and Smart Regenerative Charging technology. Drivers who want an automatic transmission can choose the 1.5-litre 120PS diesel, which delivers combined fuel economy of 56.6mpg and CO2 output of just 129g/km.
The only vehicle in its class to be awarded the five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the Connect five-seat model allows you complete peace of mind wherever you travel. Strong and rigid bodywork, along with driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags, keep you and your passengers shielded from the effects of any impact. Anti-Lock brakes and a multitude of advanced active safety features including EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) and TCS (Traction Control System) ensure that the Tourneo Connect is an easy vehicle to control, even in the worst conditions.
