Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

To buy, the Tourneo Custom undercuts the Volkswagen Caravelle and the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, but you can pick up a Peugeot Traveller or Citroën Spacetourer for less. It’s also worth noting that the Tourneo Custom’s diesel engines aren’t as economical as their equivalents in the Traveller and Spacetourer, so the Tourneo Custom will cost more to fuel.

The Tourneo Custom is very well equipped, though, getting a lot of standard kit including air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and a leather steering wheel. That said, we’d be tempted to upgrade to Titanium for a full infotainment system and the option of the range-topping engine.

Ford has a good reliability record, as evidenced by our latest reliability survey, in which the brand finished ninth out of 32 manufacturers.
