The high driving position, together with the Tourneo Connect’s deep windscreen and large windows, ensure all-round visibility is excellent. You won’t have any problems getting comfortable, either, thanks to plenty of adjustment to the seat and steering wheel. The dashboard isn’t as easy to live with, because it has too many small, fiddly buttons on it.
Ford Tourneo Connect MPV space & practicality
There’s loads of head- and legroom in the front seats, so even tall adults will have more than enough space. It’s a shame the rear seats (or the middle-row ones in the seven-seat Grand model) don’t slide back and forth, but there’s plenty of room for two adults or three children. The Grand version is longer and has an extra two seats in the rear that can be moved back and forth individually; with them slid all the way back, there’s still enough room for a collapsible pushchair in the boot.
Ford Tourneo Connect MPV equipment
Entry-level Studio models get a DAB radio, USB socket, Bluetooth and front electric windows, but not much else. We’d go for Zetec, which adds air-con, rear electric windows, heated doors mirrors and Ford’s Sync infotainment system with CD player. Opt for range-topping Titanium trim if you want lots of toys; it gets rear parking sensors, a panoramic glass roof, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, alloy wheels and a leather steering wheel.
