The Tourneo Connect is a cheap option for families with extra room and frugal Ford engines

The Tourneo connect is a least expensive SUV which has more room than Ford C-Max and price tag which is few thousand pounds less than the C-Max. The Ford Tourneo Connect MPV looks very like a Transit Connect van, partly due to its relation to the Ford Transit model family.

In specific reality, it’s more attentively focusing on the Ford Focus hatchback, C-Max MPV and Kuga SUV, which gives it edge over competitors which are centered on vans, as they seem so much jagged round the sides.

The Tourneo Connect presents exclusively more space inside than its own fellows like the C-Max, regardless of costing so much less, and a Grand Tourneo connect is also there with 40cm longer wheel base and both five or seven seats options for many who need even more area.

All Tourneo Connect units have sliding rear doorways, which rather aids access to the rear seats, particularly in parking areas.

The Tourneo Connect Diesel Engines

The Tourneo Connect comes with the same Ford Transit engines where a 1.5 litre TDCi diesel engine offers three power outputs, 98bhp or 118bhp, or 99bhp however a 1.0 litre is also there with 99bhp and 1.6-litre petrol engine cranks out 148bhp.

The diesel versions are capable of a reputable fuel economy of sixty-four miles per gallon, and unless you opt for an automatic gearbox, the best on hand with the 1.6-litre petrol engine.

Petrol engines offered in the Tourneo Connect

Apart from the diesel engines line up, two petrol engines are also there. The Tourneo connect makes the most coherent feel when furnished with one of the two diesel engine choices. Petrol engines offer quality at the variety of city speeds that car will encounter every day.

The 98bhp variant has a five-speed manual gearbox, at the same time, the 118bhp variant elements a six-speed manual transmission that makes it extra relaxed and quiet on the motorway. Despite its measurement, the 99bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged engine is the most affordable within the range not ever feels overwhelmed on the road, even carrying five or seven passengers.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine is the most strong in the selection of petrol engines and it produces 148bhp, but the best configuration is have an automatic gearbox for best performance.

Tourneo Connect trims

The all-new Tourneo connect offered in three trims from an entry level model to a mid-range Zetec and range-topping Titanium. The base model do not include so much equipment as average however, you at least have a digital radio, amongst a few different bits of kit.

The highest-spec Titanium

The highest-spec Titanium model mounted with alloy wheels and range of colours which helps to detract from the Tourneo connect van-like appearance. The highest-spec Titanium is sufficiently highly-priced, nevertheless, that we would endorse the Zetec, which is organized with air-con, a heated windscreen and extra adjustment for the moveable seat, making it less difficult to search out the exceptional settings.
