The new Ford Tourneo Connect is a great choice for a large family.
Despite the fact that Ford has a wide range of minivans and is the undisputed leader in this segment in Russia, it also offers its customers another type of family car, spacious and comfortable. The recently released Ford Tourneo Connect is the quintessence of these features.
What makes the Ford Tourneo Connect different?
A family car for several people should have some basic qualities, the most important of which are safety and comfort on the road, spaciousness for passengers and plenty of luggage space.
Ford Tourneo Connect can be equipped with both short base and long base - Grand Tourneo Connect, as well as independently in 5- or 7-seat versions. Just as importantly, Ford also thought about the practicality of solutions other than minivans. Reversible sliding side doors allow for easy entry and exit in a wide variety of environments that vehicles with traditional opening doors can't handle. This solution is especially useful for people transporting the elderly, as well as for parents of children, who find it easier to get into the cabin, and thus reduces the risk of damage to neighboring vehicles to almost zero.
The materials used in the Tourneo Connect are of the highest quality, ensuring a high level of comfort inside the car.
Security and joy in life
Just as importantly, the new Tourneo Connect is an example of safety in this vehicle class. The model received the highest five-star rating in Euro NCAP safety tests, confirming Ford's reputation as a brand with a focus on traveler safety. There is no doubt that a number of safety systems and a driver assistant not only allow families to travel safely, but also safely. After all, the car is designed to actively spend time.
In this context, it is worth noting that you can take on board not only the whole family, pets, but also much more. The Tourneo Connect is not a passenger van, but an everyday companion that allows you to fully enjoy it in almost any circumstances.
The Tourneo Connect has a luggage compartment height of up to 1,211 mm (Grand version) and a maximum cargo volume of 3,105 liters (Grand version with 2nd and 3rd row seats folded down). Even with seven passengers, the luggage compartment of the Grand Tourneo Connect is as much as 650 liters, which is complemented by numerous stowage compartments in the cabin. Each passenger has a place for a drink, as well as additional pockets for other things.
Travel can also be made more enjoyable thanks to the dual-zone air conditioning and, above all, the panoramic roof.
Ford took care not to use the air conditioning more efficiently than would be required in a car without a panoramic roof. It is made of a special composition of elements, including laminated layers of safety glass LSG, as well as membranes between the glasses. Also used a special coating that prevents the penetration of thermal radiation inside. This means that in winter the roof keeps the heat in the car and in summer there is no risk of additional heating of the car.
Economical despite the volume
Despite its large size, the Tourneo Connect is extremely economical. Its most economical version consumes just 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers according to WLTP. The engine range is prepared to meet all requirements. Therefore, it includes both gasoline and diesel engines.
In both cases, you can combine them with a manual or automatic transmission. In the latter case, the dual-clutch automatic transmission delivers performance comparable to a manual transmission, but with greater ease of use. An added bonus are shift paddles behind the steering wheel for drivers who like to take control of their gear changes from time to time.
Interestingly, the car is also available with AWD, making it easier to drive in snow, sand or rainy weather. Thus, Tourneo Connect is an extremely comprehensive offer in its segment.
