Which Transit Connect does Edmunds recommend?

The right Transit Connect for you will depend on your end use of the van. Our money would be on the short-wheelbase passenger van in the top-of-the-line Titanium trim level, for all the creature comforts, and the long wheelbase (LWB) with the 2.0-liter engine, for maximum practicality. That would give you up-to-date technology for comfort and daily use but plenty of practicality when the rear seats are folded down for a range of hobbies or weekend activities.

Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Extremely practical yet compact
  • Comprehensive suite of driver assistance technology
  • Variety of configurations are available
  • More maneuverable than traditional minivans
  • Engines don't have an overabundance of power
  • Firmer and less isolating ride than with a traditional minivan
  • New gasoline and diesel engines
  • New eight-speed automatic
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard on most trim levels
  • Forward collision warning with pedestrian detection is standard on all trim levels
  • Part of the second Ford Transit Connect generation introduced in 2014

Overall rating

Ford originally introduced the Transit Connect as a cargo van or a bare-bones people hauler best left to cab companies. It was tough to imagine many people seeing the Transit Connect as a viable option for strictly personal use. But Ford believes there's a market for a compact van and is marketing the 2019 Transit Connect squarely at baby boomers looking to rekindle their love affair with the van.

Of course, Ford will still make versions for commercial applications, and indeed, it excels at being a more urban-based runabout for a business that doesn't really need a giant work van (or the heftier fuel bill). Yet, the Transit Connect passenger van sees the biggest benefits from Ford's push to civilize the once industrial runabout. Two new engines are on offer, with one of them being a segment-first diesel. And both engines are backed with new eight-speed transmissions in a bid to improve not only drivability but fuel economy as well.

While the outside receives a more carlike restyling, the inside also sees Ford bring in creature comforts found throughout the rest of its lineup. New seats, better ergonomics and updated technology, such as Ford's Sync 3 system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, mean you won't be giving up comfort, convenience and modernity by getting this smaller, cheaper alternative to traditional minivans. Like those vehicles, the Transit Connect passenger van can seat as many as seven people in the longer of its two wheelbase configurations. Also, when properly equipped, the little van can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

So, whether you're considering the Transit Connect as an alternative to a compact minivan or as an addition to a fleet of compact commercial vans, we think it's a compelling choice that has been upgraded for the better.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of this vehicle, but we have limited experience with a preproduction model. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Driving

The Transit Connect is likely the best-driving vehicle in the compact-van segment thanks to responsive steering and appropriate body control. The new eight-speed transmission helps get the most from the diminutive engines.

Comfort

When optioned with a full interior, the Transit Connect does a fair impression of a compact SUV, with comfortable seats and good visibility. But the firm ride reminds you of the Transit Connect's unsophisticated work-van roots.

Interior

Getting in and out of the Transit Connect is a breeze for front and rear passengers alike. Third-row access is a bit tight, but adults can fit back there.

Utility

With or without passengers, the Transit Connect doesn't offer the cargo capacity of some of its rivals. Yet it remains a versatile compact van.

Technology

Most every bit of tech you can find in a Focus or an Escape can also be found in the Transit Connect and further helps to set it apart from the other, more commercially oriented vans in the class. It's also good for a passenger van but lacks the overtly kid-friendly features of traditional minivans.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ford Transit Connect?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
