Press Kit Description
“The new Tourneo people movers are spacious, flexible, and now offer new technologies like SYNC 3 connectivity to help customers get the most from their busy and active lifestyles. Sophisticated powertrain technologies, including our latest 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engines, make the new Tourneo models even better to drive and cheaper to run, too.”
Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe
The new Tourneo Connect is part of Ford’s completely renewed line-up of Tourneo people movers, which also includes the compact Tourneo Courier and the range-topping new eight/nine-seat Tourneo Custom.
The new model introduces a stylish new front-end appearance featuring a five-bar Tourneo grille, combined with slimmer headlamps and a more aerodynamic lower fascia and front spoiler. Both the five-seat Tourneo Connect and the seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect feature an upgraded interior with a floating, tablet-inspired 6-inch colour touchscreen on high series models, featuring Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system.
Advanced technologies include a comprehensive new range of segment-first driver assistance features including Intelligent Speed Assist, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Side Wind Stabilisation and Active Park Assist. A state-of-the-art new powertrain line-up provides enhanced fuel-efficiency, with Ford’s all-new 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine – with optional eight-speed automatic transmission – and an advanced new version of the 1.0litre EcoBoost petrol engine with cylinder deactivation.
New Tourneo Connect will be available to order in spring 2018 for customer delivery from the middle of the year.
