Versatile Ford Tourneo Connect now even more capable

Ford’s competent Tourneo Connect 'multi-activity vehicle' could be your ultimate ‘family fun’ mode of transport - and it now features all-wheel-drive for the first time ever.

The Tourneo Connect has been on UK roads for almost two decades now and it’s got a loyal following among lease customers.

That’s largely thanks to the fact Ford describes it as a 'dual use' car, being equally at home running business errands as it is on exciting weekend jollies away.

Now the Tourneo Connect has been given an impressive facelift for 2022,  and boasts an all-new exterior design that apes lots of Ford’s regular passenger cars. Even more importantly, you can now spec the Tourneo Connect with all-wheel-drive, meaning you really can get off the beaten track during your daring adventures.

There’s also lots of new driver assistance tech to keep you safe, including Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning, Lane-Keeping System, Driver Alert, Cruise Control, Adjustable Speed Limiting System, Hill Start Assist and Front and rear parking sensors - all fitted as standard.

Andy Hodge, Tourneo Connect brand manager, Ford of Europe, said:

“Most of us have squeezed children or pets into a car before, but the all-new Tourneo Connect can comfortably take so much more. From kite-surfing equipment to a full sound system, our images show that being able to pack more into your car helps you get more out of life.”

First thing to note with the Tourneo Custom is that there’s seven seat capability on both the short‑wheelbase ‘L1’ version and the long‑wheelbase ‘L2’ models.

But when you don’t need all of that bum-parking space, you can fold the seat rows down - or remove them completely - to create a huge load area.

Ford says it’s perfect for sports equipment, or work kit, and because the front passenger seat also folds flat the Tourneo Connect will even swallow a three-metre long kayak, or ‘flat-pack furniture’.

With the second and third row seating removed, the Tourneo Connect offers up to 3.1m3 of load volume in L2 models and 2.6m3 in L1 models.

Large sliding side doors on both sides of the vehicle make it exceedingly practical, while a panoramic glass roof and dual‑zone climate control - both optional extras - add a touch of comfort for those long journeys.

Meanwhile there are four different ‘series’ models to choose from - Active, Sport, Titanium and Trend.

Active is arguably the most appealing, featuring SUV-inspired looks as well as 17 inch alloys, a honeycomb grille, a metallic-effect skid plate and additional body mouldings around the wheel arches, sills and bumpers.

Sport gives you distinctive bonnet stripes, a more dynamic lower front bumper and 17-inch dark alloy wheels. Titanium comes with satin chrome detailing, privacy glass, and 16-inch alloy wheels. And Trend brings you a high-gloss black grille surround and stylish wheel trims.

There’s a new interior featuring an all-new 8.25-inch infotainment touchscreen that comes as standard. And on top of all the driver assistance systems mentioned above, you can also splash-out on Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Information System, and Cross Traffic Alert.

There are three powertrains to choose from - one petrol and two diesel units. The petrol is a 1.5 litre EcoBoost - Ford’s party-piece when it comes to engines - offering power of 114 PS and up to 44.8 mpg. Meanwhile the diesel is a 2.0 EcoBlue with two power outputs - 102 PS or 122 PS. And it’s the 122 PS unit you can choose to have in four-wheel-drive.

A Ford spokesperson adds:

“Customers can now benefit from all-wheel drive for the first time on Tourneo Connect to increase traction on loose and slippery surfaces for more confident driving. The system automatically distributes torque between the wheels depending on driving conditions and surfaces, helping drivers maintain progress in more challenging conditions.”

Ford’s all-new Tourneo Connect will be available to order across European markets in early 2022, with customer deliveries set to follow in the spring.
