With the greatest passenger capacity in the range, the new Ford Transit Minibus gets everyone around in comfort and safety. It works hard as a true commercial vehicle, with the extra style, convenience and practicality of a people carrier.
The vehicle shares its look with the rest of the Ford Commercials range, from the flat roof down to the black underside panels. Twin glazed rear doors are fitted for easier access to the load space, and steps are integrated with the bumper for wiping the Quickclear heated windscreen. Even the door mirrors are highly functional, with built-in side indicators and blind spot eliminators.
It's possible to choose the minibus with up to 17 seats over six rows, making it ideal for large group outings, motorway runs and transporting work crews. There are also short and long wheelbase versions, front-wheel and rear-wheel drive systems and roof heights – all with a full headlining and rubber-insulated load floor. The cabin looks and feels reassuringly like a Ford car, putting all of the main controls and systems exactly where you need them.
You can also tell that the vehicle is a Ford from the comprehensive safety features that it comes equipped with as standard. It's kitted out with front, side and curtain airbags, Roll-Over Mitigation, ESC with curve control, emergency braking assistance and Hill Start Assist. The remote central locking includes automatic relocking if no doors are opened, and there's a separate key system for the bonnet.
The engine for the minibus is a strong 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel, at 123bhp or 153bhp. At its toughest, the Ford Transit will comfortably hold more than 1.5 tonnes of payload or tow a braked weight of as much as 2.65 tonnes. The model is limited to the legal maximum speed of 62mph, and all engines deliver up to 38.2mpg combined fuel economy thanks to Ford Eco Mode and Auto Start-Stop technologies.
