Safest van: Ford Transit Custom

The Ford Transit is a British institution and the latest version is also available as a highly desirable people mover. The so-called Transit Custom Kombi is a van-based people carrier that owes much to the latest passenger cars when it comes to safety.

Electronic stability control comes as standard, as does a seatbelt reminder for the driver, while a speed limiter is available as an option. What the Ford also provides is a commanding driving position that almost puts you on eye-level with bus and lorry drivers. Its latest refresh gives it stylish looks for such a boxy machine and impressive fuel returns thanks to features like stop-start and brake energy regeneration.

Twin sliding rear doors and nine seats ensure the Ford is a capable and practical minibus. However, it's not all about passengers with the new Transit Custom, thanks to the capable and confidence-inspiring handling, the driver will enjoy the ride, too. Power comes from the tried and tested 2.2 TDCI engine with three outputs and CO2 emissions as low as 172g/km. Few people need a car this big, but if you do, the Transit Custom is one of the safest.
