Transit Connect SWB 1.5 Limited 120 

The long awaited New Ford Transit Connect but thankfully now with a short waiting list. Superb build, excellent on the road, full of useful innovations, and fantastic fuel economy. 

Transit Connect

What is it?

Having had far more than the usual facelift Ford have gone to town with their ‘town van’. The new Connect has had a complete overhaul from the wheel nuts upwards and now even more car-like than ever before

So far the Ford Transit Custom has won the title of International Van of the Year for 2013 – and we believe that the Ford Transit Connect has clinched the title for 2014. So from that, you can gather that these vans are serious pieces of new kit

The new Ford Transit Connect offers a load area with volumes of 2.9cu m and 3.6cu m with a full bulkhead, or 3.7cu m and 4.4cu m including the front load space area
