At the “Go Further” event in Amsterdam, Ford launched the new Turneo Connect, a car that promises to offer outstanding space and versatility in a stylish new package for all the families. The first visual impact with the car shows a brand new “face” which follows the same design language seen on the new Fiesta and Mondeo.
A stylish cockpit and the latest premium features contribute to an attractive and comfortable driving environment. The new model will be available in a choice of two capable and versatile models: the five-seat Tourneo Connect and the seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect. Set to go on sale in early 2013, the new Turneo Connect primises to offer a choice of highly efficient downsized diesel and petrol engines and Ford ECOnetic Technologies features.
In North America, the car will be sold as the Transit Connect Wagon. “Ford’s Tourneo line-up is undergoing a radical transformation, led by the stylish new Tourneo Connect and with more exciting product to come,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president Product Development, Ford of Europe. “These are good-looking, versatile and well-equipped vehicles that families, professional drivers and those looking for space to stow bikes, and even fishing equipment, will choose for their practical virtues and enjoy for their do-it-all spirit and attractive design.”
