The Transit Custom features an updated interior that enhances every journey: new fabrics and improved driver ergonomics – such as an optimised driving position and adjustable seating – mean a more comfortable ride and exceptional visibility, while increased cabin stowage makes for a neat and tidy environment no matter how busy the day becomes.
With four trim levels, choosing the perfect combination of comfort and performance is simple. Standard features include an aux-in socket and 12V charging points to keep devices ready to go. Upgrading to the Trend model adds Ford SYNC 3 with music streaming, while opting for the Limited variant brings DAB radio and heated front seats.
Proving its ability to protect in any circumstance, the Ford Transit Custom has been awarded the full five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. Carry any load with confidence thanks to Load Adaptive Control, which adjusts the stability control according to the vehicle’s overall weight, and reduce the risk of collisions with Pre-Collision Assist. This clever technology warns drivers of the presence of slower vehicles and pedestrians, automatically applying the brakes if no response is received.
Other innovations include an enhanced airbag system and a roll-rate sensor for extra stability when tackling off-camber turns.
Ford has taken power and economy to the next level in the new Transit Custom. A range of 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue engines is on offer, each of which complies with the Euro 6 emissions regulations and incorporates smart technology to improve efficiency. A selective catalytic reduction system converts NOx emissions into nitrogen and water, while Auto Start-Stop switches off the engine while idling.
The 130 PS and 170 PS variants are available with slick, six-shift automatic transmission, while optional Acceleration Control further enhances the drive by controlling acceleration based on whether the vehicle is fully-laden, part-laden or un-laden.
Driving the Ford Transit Custom is more intuitive and relaxing than ever thanks to an array of new technologies. Front and rear sensors activate a visual and audible warning when objects are detected, making parking in those tighter spaces easier, while the rear air suspension – available on Kombi models – maintains a consistent ride height no matter how much weight the vehicle is carrying.
In addition, automatic headlamps switch on when dusk is falling and Auto High Beam dips the lights when an approaching vehicle is detected. All this is combined with the van’s superior grip and precise steering to create a smooth, comfortable and convenient drive on every journey.
