AMSTERDAM - Ford launched a new generation of smart and stylish passenger vehicles under the Tourneo brand, at its exclusive "Go Further" event in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
The new people mover range, offering active families a compelling blend of space, versatility and comfort, will be spearheaded by the all-new Tourneo Connect - revealed for the first time at the "Go Further" event - which joins the larger Tourneo Custom model in the revitalised line-up.
"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."
The all-new Tourneo Connect joins Ford's passenger car line-up as a practical and affordable family vehicle offering outstanding space and versatility in a stylish new package.
Standing out from the crowd with its dynamic, modern appearance, the Tourneo Connect delivers a bold new look to this class of people mover. A stylish cockpit and the latest premium features contribute to an attractive and comfortable driving environment.
Available in a choice of two capable and versatile models - the five-seat Tourneo Connect and the seven-seat Grand Tourneo Connect - the new vehicle offers outstanding practicality for active families or professional chauffeurs, with sliding rear doors, highly-flexible seating and a host of smart stowage areas.
Tourneo Connect targets best-in-class fuel economy by offering a choice of highly efficient downsized diesel and petrol engines and Ford ECOnetic Technologies features.
The all-new Tourneo Connect is scheduled to go on sale in Europe, and in North America where it will be sold as the Transit Connect Wagon, in 2013. The new eight/nine-seat Tourneo Custom people mover is on sale now.
