Ford Tourneo Connect - best people carriers and MPVs

A van-based MPV that drives like a car, the Ford Tourneo Connect isn’t as refined as the competition, but it’s practical and well priced

When all you need is ultimate space and practicality, a van is the way to go. Eschewing fancy styling in favour of a boxy body, the Ford Tourneo Connect offers an absolutely cavernous interior, and with the seats removed it could easily double as a panel van.

Ford Tourneo Connect review

Despite its van-based origins, the Tourneo Connect is great to drive. It’s streets ahead of rivals on the road, and genuinely entertaining – with only a slightly firm ride spoiling the fun.

The Tourneo Connect has a 913-litre boot even with all the seats up. That’s just about as big as you can get on such a compact footprint, and it gets even better when you fold the rear seats down – a massive 2,410 litres are on offer. Twin side sliding doors and an enormous tailgate make it really easy to load, too, and cabin storage is also good.

Most people will plump for one of the 1.6-litre diesel engines, which offer car-like running costs as well as decent performance. There are also two petrol options including a 1.0-litre EcoBoost.
