Verdict

If space is on your checklist, then the Ford Tourneo Connect is a car worth pondering over. Unlike much of its competition, like the Peugeot Partner Tepee and other such cars, the Tourneo Connect derives from a car. While it is available as a van, the Ford Tourneo Connect is derived from the extremely popular Ford Focus. While the Tourneo Connect may not be the most attractive car in the world, it certainly has its advantages when it comes to space.

Performance

The Ford Tourneo Connect is available to the Irish market with one engine. This is the 1.5-litre 100bhp diesel. It is available with both a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 5-speed automatic box. For most, the 0-100km/h figures won't matter, but considering that we are taking about performance her, the official 0-100km/h figure, according to Ford, is 13.3 with the manual gearbox and 12.9 for the automatic. Top speeds are 162km/h and 167km/h respectively.

Ride & Handling

The Ford Tourneo Connect offers neither a wonderful drive nor an exciting one. This is a car which is built for practicality - and the benefits of its practicality will be clear to those who opt for one of these. Its dimensions are large and high, which results in body roll. However, the Tourneo Connect, because its Focus underpinnings, is a slightly better handler than its direct competition. It is also a bonus that the steering of the Tourneo Connect is light, which means that if is to be used for the school run, it should be easy to park.

Refinement

Because this vehicle is both high and large, there is some sufferings from road and wind noise. However, it would fare slightly better than its competition in this department.

Quality & Reliability

This MPV feels more car-like on the inside than the Citroen and Peugeot equivalents. Yes, the plastics are typically hard, but the layout is not that different from what you would see in a C-Max. Our test model still housed an early SYNC infotainment system, which is somewhat dated, however, future models will surely benefit from the latest generations of SYNC.

Safety & Security

Ford scored a full five stars in the EURO NCAP with the Tourneo Connect. The vehicle received a score of 94% for adult occupancy and 85% for child safety. It's safety assistance systems pulled 70%, while pedestrian safety received 62%.

Space & Practicality

Space within this vehicle can only be described as excellent. The boo offers more than 900 litres of space and the car can be bought with either a long, or a short, wheel base. This vehicle can also be converted for wheelchair accessibility.
