2015 Ford Transit Connect

What did we anticipate? Taking a look at photos from the Transit Link XLT gave us the impact of the mini-minivan just like the Mazda5 or perhaps Ford’s approaching Grand C-Max. It’s definitely taller than these, but nevertheless appears much more compact than the usual conventional minivan just like the Toyota Sienna or Dodge Grand Caravan. The figures do not lie: İn contrast to some Grand Caravan, the Transit Link is nearly 22 inches shorter and precisely 8 inches narrower, although it’s an astonishing ten.four inches taller.

The very fact is, Ford discovered that to obtain the utmost quantity of cargo space within the smallest footprint feasible, the sole method to go was up.
