The interior layout, fit and finish
Slide on to (or jump up to) the driver’s seat and you’ll instantly feel like one of the tallest drivers on the road. The high driving position gives you a brilliant view out of the front and some handy features make visibility a real strong point for the Ford Tourneo Custom.
It has extra mirrors fitted to the bottom of the door mirrors to eliminate blind spots, and front and rear parking sensors are standard to help you avoid nasty scrapes when you're squeezing this huge car into parking spaces. A rear-view camera comes as standard on Titanium X trim.
The driver’s seat is usually eight-way manually adjustable but you get 10-way electrical adjustment in Sport and Titanium X trims, and it's available as an option with Titanium spec.
Entry-level Zetec models get a 4.2in TFT display with an AM/FM radio so it’s worth stepping up to Titanium trim, which gets an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system using Ford’s latest Sync 3 software. It’s a crisp and clear display that’s easy to use and one of the better systems in the class. Just don’t expect it to look like the last word in sophistication.
In terms of build quality, there’s a pleasing amount of soft-touch plastic on the top of the doors and dashboard. The switches and controls work as well as they do in a Ford passenger car, although you don’t have to stray too far to find hard plastics that give away the Tourneo Custom’s van origins. Still, that's par for the course in the class.
