Helping to keep you inside the speed limit

The New Transit Connect now comes with Intelligent Speed Assist, designed to enhance your speed control and enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit. (option)








An engine that works as hard as you do

The state-of-the-art 75 PS, 100 PS and 120 PS Ford diesel engines are highly advanced, turbo-charged powertrains that deliver measurably improved efficiency, performance and refinement. The new engines can improve fuel efficiency, are more responsive and also quieter than ever before.

SYNC 3. For an effortless hands-free experience

Ford SYNC 3 is an advanced system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system. Choose either voice commands or the 6” colour touchscreen with pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. Live Traffic can help you avoid the jams. You can even call up a list of local restaurants simply by saying “I’m hungry”. (option)








A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assit detects vehicle and pedestrians in the road ahead. It can even detect pedestrians that may be about to cross the vehicle's path. The system warn you if it detects a potential collision and if you don't respond it will automatically apply the brakes. This technology is designed to help reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether, and function at speeds of up to 50mph (80kmh).

Space for long items with a load-through bulkhead

Available on all van versions with a dual front passenger seat, an ingenious load-through bulkhead lets you carry items up to 3m long in a short wheelbase van (L1) and up to 3.4m in a long wheel-base model (L2). The bulkhead has a flip-up hatch at the bottom, which you can slide long items through and into a storage area beneath the front passenger seats. Behind the bulkhead, there's room for two Euro-pallets (in L1) or up to four 8' x 4' sheets of material (in L2).









Parking made easier

Active Park Assist can steer you into parallel or perpendicular parking spaces. Simply push a button and the sensors of this innovative system locate a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake (following on-screen instructions and audible signals). It will pull out of parallel spaces as well. (option on selected models)
