Sleek and spacious design

With a high quality, professional appearance, the Ford Transit Minibus is ready to welcome its passengers on board and make them feel at home instantly. It’s easier than ever to get in and out of the vehicle thanks to its optional power side load door and power side step. Once on board, the durable materials ensure the interior will remain pristine and professional for as long as possible.
Packed with new technologies
Technology is at the heart of the Ford Transit Minibus experience. With power sockets carefully positioned throughout and 4G connectivity thanks to the built-in FordPass Connect modem, passengers can enjoy a connected ride.
Up in the driver’s seat, the first time connectivity allows for live traffic updates to be sent directly via the navigation system. Other advanced technologies found in the New Transit Minibus include Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control to reduce tiredness on motorways and an Advanced Blind Spot Information System for added safety while driving. You’ll also find several new Selectable Drive Modes to make driving easier and more efficient. These include Normal, Slippery, Tow/Haul and a new EcoMode.
The Ford Transit Minibus comes with a choice of advanced 2.0 litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engine. Every engine in the range meets the stringent Euro HDT 6.0 emissions standard while promising a powerful drive. For maximum performance, the New Transit Minibus is available with a refined Heavy Duty Truck (HDT) engine that offers up 170PS in 6-speed manual transmissions.
A safe ride for everyone
As you would expect with a new Ford vehicle, safety is at the heart of the Ford Transit Minibus. You’ll find an impressive line-up of advanced safety features and technologies designed to protect everybody on board inside the Transit Minibus. These include features such as Pre Collision Assist to reduce the risk of hitting another vehicle and Pedestrian Detection monitors to help keep those outside the vehicle safe too. If the system detects any potential collision with another vehicle or pedestrian ahead, it can respond automatically and apply the brakes if needed.
