Ford Transit Connect, more versatile than ever
The Ford Transit Connect, despite its small size, has several personalities. Its most straightforward configuration is a commercial van capable of transporting goods efficiently and whose interior can be easily rearranged. In its touring version, it remains a comfortable passenger carrier with a large capacity.
For 2021, the Transit Connect changes little. It retains its 16 configurations but displays new colours. Most importantly, new security options have been added to make it even more versatile. Available in short or long versions, the sliding side doors have been maintained for quick access, and a horizontal tailgate has been added for easy loading.
