THE Ford Transit Custom is Ford’s replacement for the old lighter Transit models (larger new Transits appear this year) and this model has been making quite a name for itself already, having picked up a raft of awards so far including International Van of the Year 2013.
And it’s easy to see why this van is a winner.
It looks superb with great kerbside appeal and features many best-in-class attributes which are bound to appeal to business users of all kinds.
The Transit Custom is the first and only van in its segment to have achieved a maximum 5-star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
The Double Cab-in-Van draws upon many advanced technologies, including the Ford SYNC voice control and MP3/iPod and phone connectivity system.
As with the van, buyers can choose two or three seats in the front row. In addition, the Double-Cab-in-Van offers an extra fixed row of three seats behind the front row. Then a fixed glazed bulkhead separates the second row of seats from the loadspace.
The Business Van of the Year Awards 2014 are supported by MAGMA Automotive.
