The Ford Tourneo Connect - The Perfect Large Family Car
11 June 2019
The new Ford Tourneo Connect is a versatile vehicle that is perfect for families in need of a large car. Available in a five- or seven-seater set-up, it is a car that is sure to upgrade your entire driving experience. Here is everything you need to know about the Ford Tourneo Connect and why it is a great option for drivers looking for a large family car.
A flexible seating system
Whether you choose the Ford Tourneo Connect with five seats or seven seats, you can enjoy a truly versatile set-up inside. The car’s ingenious flexible seating system makes it incredibly easy to arrange your seats to suit your day. Whether you need to carry more passengers, more luggage or bulky items, Ford’s Fold Flat System helps you to fit everything in.
Both the 5-seater and 7-seater Ford Tourneo Connect come with flexible seating. In the 5-seater model, the second row of seats is split 60/40 and can fold fully forward with the backs folded flat. If you still need a little more room, the seats can be removed entirely. In the larger 7-seater Grand Tourneo Connect, the second row offers the same flexibility. The third row is slightly different, with a 50/50 split, and also folds flat entirely.
Advanced safety and security
Safety and security sit at the forefront of the new Ford Tourneo Connect’s technology features, with a number of smart security systems designed to keep everybody on board safe at all times. These include Pre-Collision Assist, which warns you of potential collisions ahead and automatically applies the brakes if you don’t respond, and an enhanced airbag system with curtain, driver, side and passenger airbags.
When driving in difficult conditions, Enhanced Stability Control can sense when the vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to stabilise it. Working with the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System, it monitors the vehicle’s behaviour and progress.
A convenient drive
The new Ford Tourneo Connect offers a relaxing yet refined driving experience. Equipped with all the technology you need for a comfortable and convenient ride, it leaves you free to focus on the road. The Ford Tourneo Connect comes with Ford’s SYNC 3 system, which lets you control everything from the music to the navigation via your smartphone. The 6 inch colour touchscreen is intuitive to use, but can also be operated by voice command when you need to keep your hands on the wheel. Other handy features include wireless charging capability, a heated driver’s seat and Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control to keep everybody comfortable.
Designed to make life easier
The Ford Tourneo Connect isn’t just a vehicle that can carry large groups of people when needed - it’s designed to make family travel easy every day. As well as sliding rear doors that allow access even in tight spaces, the interior has everything you need, including a 12V plug socket, USB points, and a centre console with cupholder and room for a laptop or other items.
