Ford Transit Connect Overview

This derivative of the Focus is no minivan substitute, though it can seat five or seven. With its boxy shape and very tall roof you'd be challenged to find more passenger space for the money. The steady ride and agile handling is where the positives end, though. It remains a commercial vehicle at heart, with a lackluster four-cylinder, low-rent interior, cumbersome folding seats, and a skimpy level of standard features. Unlike a minivan, you don't get power doors or a rear-seat entertainment system, and even Bluetooth connectivity costs extra. The base four-cylinder managed only 21-mpg overall, and we see little indication that the uplevel 1.6-liter turbo-four would do much better.
