The interior layout, fit and finish
Inside this latest Transit Custom, the busy, sloping dashboard of the previous model has been replaced by a simpler, more upright design.
Limited and Sport models get a tablet-like 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system as standard – a good attempt at adding premium car equipment into a working vehicle.
The system uses the third generation of Ford’s Sync system, which is far simpler than the multi-menued Sync 2 and a welcome upgrade from the 4.3in standard screen on Trend models or the standard AM/FM radio found on Base vans.
Thanks to the combination of a steering wheel that adjusts for both rake and reach and a highly adjustable seat, it should be easy for drivers of all shapes and sizes to find a comfortable position in the Transit Custom.
There are lots of useful storage compartments along the top of the dash, too, and the door bins feature split-level compartments that allow you to store small items discreetly.
