Paris Motor Show 2012: Ford to launch Tourneo Connect

Ford has announced a new people carrier based on the Transit Connect. Called the Tourneo Connect, it offers a similar package to the Citroen Berlingo Multispace, with flexible five-or seven-seat arrangement, depending on model, and generous interior space.

It’s confirmed for sale in Europe, but product planners at Ford of Britain are currently undecided on whether it will be sold in the UK. The styling echoes that of the upcoming restyled Fiesta, and features sliding side doors and a high roof to maximise cabin space.

There are three engines on offer, a 1.0-litre and 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrols and a 1.6-litre diesel with three power outputs - 75PS, 95PS and 115PS. Fuel saving technology includes stop/start and active grille shutter. Ford has best in class fuel economy in mind for the Tourneo Connect. 

Barb Samardzich, vice president Product Development, Ford of Europe, said “These are good-looking, versatile and well-equipped vehicles that families, professional drivers and those looking for space to stow bikes, and even fishing equipment, will choose for their practical virtues and enjoy for their do-it-all spirit and attractive design.”

Ford aims to make the Tourneo Connect the most efficient model in its class, with a range of small diesel and petrol engines featuring Econetic technology.
