For The five-seat Tourneo Connect has a huge interior, and the longer seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect has genuine space for seven adults. It’s good to drive and the diesel engines are impressively economical.
Against Those van-like dimensions cause too much wind noise at high speed. The dashboard layout is complicated and the cheaper models are poorly equipped.
What Car? says
The Ford Tourneo Connect isn’t pretty, but it has everything families need in an MPV. Not only is it huge inside, it’s cheap to run and prices are competitive.

Target Price team says:
The Ford Tourneo Connect and Grand Tourneo Connect aren’t the best-looking MPVs, but their van-like dimensions mean they’re seriously spacious. They also don’t drive like vans and their sliding rear doors help make access easy, so they’re a good choice if something like a Citroen C4 Picasso/Grand C4 Picasso isn’t big enough.
The 114bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine is pretty economical and is powerful enough to move you and your family around, so it’s what we’d go for. We haven’t yet driven the lower-powered diesel engine.
Of the petrols, we prefer the 1.0-litre version to the 1.6. It copes better than you might expect in a car as big as the Tourneo Connect, although it does need to be revved harder than a diesel.
Mid-level Zetec models are the best value and come with air-con, heated door mirrors and four electric windows. Range-topping Titanium versions are much better equipped, but you can get a superior rival MPV for the amount they cost.
