THE new Ford Transit Connect is a winner before it even goes on sale in the UK.
So if your small business is looking for a compact van – hang fire.
The new Ford Transit Connect was voted International Van of the Year 2014.
The Ford Transit Connect beat the Mercedes Sprinter (second) and Renault Kangoo (third).
It’s the second successive year that Ford has won the International Van of the Year Award.
Last year the new Ford Transit Custom took the title.
It’s the fifth time that Ford has won the title – a record.
Previous Ford winners were:
- Transit 2001
- Transit Connect 2003
- Transit 2007
- Transit Custom 2013
“The all-new Transit Connect has moved the game on for compact vans – and we are really proud to win this significant award again,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president of product development, Ford of Europe.
“The new Transit Connect is just as tough and hard-working as all our commercial vehicle range, and comes with smart new looks and much lower fuel bills.”
The new Ford Transit Connect promises to give trades and small van fleet operators the sort of cost-reducing van costs they’re looking for.
The Ford Transit Connect offers up to 70.6mpg – a 34% uplift on the previous model.
The Ford Transit Connect is on sale now for delivery towards the end of the year.
