So far, so good!
Cabin is comfortable, fairly roomy for a smaller vehicle, but not much in the way of storage compartments. Handling is nimble, very compliant. This vehicle is "peppy" enough around town and actually fun to drive - but not a lot of "giddy up" when merging onto the highway. Ford annoyingly chose to leave out a way to switch off interior cargo LED's.
most uncomfortable vehicle ever
I have had this vehicle forced upon me by my company. DO NOT get the vinyl seats!!! If you're 5'11" or taller you will be uncomfortable regardless of which seats you choose. My company ordered the XL model, which is a step above the Flintstone's car. It has absolutely nothing up front. If you're planning on getting shelving installed, choose very carefully and keep in mind that your workers cannot be kept to cookie cutter rules. Storage space is definitely not one size fits all. My work is not the same as Joe's work so why do we have identical vehicles? I can't fit my tools in this thing because they put so many shelves in it. My tools are too big for the shelves. If you like to drive with your arm on the door you could forget it. They put this weird trim on it to give it a curved look that forces your arm forward and punishes you for trying by digging into your elbow. The armrest is too low on the door and the armrest on the seat has a mind of its own, comes out of adjustment constantly and the only way to correct it is to turn it straight up and hope you get it right on the way back down. I've had many work vans over the last 25 years. Full size Dodge, Ford, Chevy, Mercedes, minivans and pickups, this thing is by far the least usable and most uncomfortable piece of crap I've ever had the displeasure of sitting in.

The 2017 Ford Transit Connect successfully appeals to two types of shoppers. There's a two-seat cargo van that appeals to small businesses, and another configuration, the multi-passenger Wagon model, that caters to the consumer market.

There are some interesting, useful options offered, depending on how much buyers are willing to spend. The Wagon can be outfitted with overhead bins like those found in an airplane or a panoramic glass roof. The cargo van comes standard with LED lights in the cargo area to aid in loading and unloading. Rear access can be had either via a liftgate or swing-out cargo doors that open 180 degrees.

The highest Wagon trim level offers leather seats, dual-zone climate control with separate rear climate controls, and a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. Buyers looking for bare-bones practicality get durable and easy-to-clean vinyl upholstery and floor coverings. The Transit Connect even offers the Ford Telematic system for fleet operators.

The only engine on offer for the Transit Connect is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which makes 169 horsepower and returns a maximum of 23 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway), paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Though not the most powerful van, the Ford can carry up to 1,620 pounds of cargo or seven passengers with ease, and it gets praise for feeling lively and capable around town. Thanks to fold-flat seats, even buyers who elect to add extra passenger capacity can take advantage of up to 128.6 cubic feet of storage in the long-wheelbase model. Towing capacity for the Transit Connect is up to 2,000 pounds.

The version of the Transit Connect that targets families isn't as luxurious as some regular minivans. After all, to keep the cost down enough to appeal to businesses, Ford builds the basic platform to a budget. But it offers impressive headroom and more cargo capacity than more than a few SUVs.

Ford has done a nice job of making one product serve two very different markets. If you need a vehicle that can move a lot of cargo, a lot of people or a combination of both, the Transit Connect should be on your short list. Edmunds can help you sort through the trims and options to find the right 2017 Ford Transit Connect, at the right price, for you.
