With the 2014 redesign, the Transit Connect is sold as a minivan alternative. It has very good ride and agile handling, but remains a rudimentary vehicle at heart. It has an underpowered four-cylinder, low-rent interior, cumbersome folding seats, and a skimpy feature set. 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, and we see little indication that the up-level 1.6-liter turbo four would do much better.
