From the outside, the Ford Transit Connect Van has a look that only an owner could love. The exterior does not resemble a typical work van. Everything from the shape of the van to the way the sides lay flat add to its unique appearance and overall appeal. It is the smaller size, however, that makes it a desirable work vehicle. Less bulk means less gas to put in for running business errands. Since companies are always looking for ways to cut costs, the Connect is gaining ground in popularity.

That unique shape is part of what makes the interior of the Ford Transit Connect Van so efficient. It offers plenty of cargo space for the average professional while ensuring that the way it is laid out is more beneficial. The cabin is nothing short of functional. Easy to use controls and modern technology combine to make the van usable and practical at the same time. It is such features as the lower step in heigh and flat floor that makes this a more viable option for the business owner. Maximizing space allows the driver to carry more cargo even though the capacity is lower than some full-size vans.

The impressions that a driver will receive of the Ford Transit Connect Van will depend solely on the expectations. Those accustomed to trying to maneuver a full-size van will instantly see the benefit of the Connect. Tight spaces and crowded areas are no longer a problem and the handling is far better than larger models. However, anyone looking for speed will be sorely disappointed in the Connect's lackluster performance. It was designed to be functional and easy to operate and that never included the option of being quick at either.
