Stylish and roomy with versatile seating
Standing out from the crowd with its dynamic, modern appearance, the Tourneo Connect delivers a bold new look to this class of people mover. The vehicle showcases Ford’s latest design language, from the signature trapezoidal grille and slim, technical headlamps at the front, through the powerful rising shoulder line, to the distinctive vertical tail lamps at the rear.
The spacious interior features a stylish cockpit that is constructed with meticulous attention to design and craftsmanship, resulting in an attractive and comfortable driving environment. An optional full-size glass panoramic roof emphasises the sensation of space and light within the cabin.
Behind the wheel, the driver benefits from the latest Ford driver assistance features and interior technologies.

Other advanced features include adaptive cornering fog lamps and a rear view camera system.
Available in a choice of two capable and versatile models – the five-seat Tourneo Connect and the seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect – the new vehicle offers outstanding practicality for active families, with sliding rear doors, highly-flexible seating and a host of smart stowage areas including aircraft-style overhead lockers above the rear seats.
The seven-seat model offers unique-in-class fold-flat seating, enabling customers to fold both second- and third-row seats to create a huge, flat load area. The front passenger seat can also be folded to allow extra-long items such as flat-pack furniture to be easily carried.
Targeting best-in-class fuel economy
Tourneo Connect targets best-in-class fuel economy by offering a choice of highly efficient diesel and petrol engines and Ford ECOnetic Technology features.
The powertrain line-up in Europe includes the Dagenham-built, highly-efficient 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with a choice of 75, 95 and 115 PS versions, and the remarkable new 100 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine – 2012 “International Engine of the Year”, plus a version of the acclaimed Bridgend-built, 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine available with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The latest low-CO2 Ford ECOnetic Technology features help to minimise fuel consumption, including Auto-Start-Stop available on both diesel and petrol models, along with an Active Grille Shutter system that minimises aerodynamic drag by reducing or stopping airflow to the cooling system when it is not required.
