Cargo capacity and flexibility; fuel-efficient powertrain; handles like a small car; maneuverability and parking ease
All Ford Transit Connect Wagons come with a 136-horsepower, 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that's been designed to meet tough commercial-vehicle standards. It's hooked up to a 4-speed automatic transmission and is rated at EPA 21 mpg city, 26 highway.
With power rack-and-pinion steering and front-wheel drive, the Transit Connect's designed to ride and drive like a car. Very compact exterior dimensions of less than 181 inches long and 71 inches wide--about the parking size of a compact sedan--make the Transit Connect very easy to park and maneuver in the city, while the tall roof and large cargo doors make loading passengers or cargo very convenient. The cargo area itself has more than 59 inches of floor-to-ceiling height and there's up to 78.1 cubic feet of cargo room. All Transit Connect Wagons come with cloth front buckets and a 3-passenger rear bench seat.
For passenger duty, the Ford Transit Connect comes in two different trims: XLT and XLT Premium. And there's not much of an equipment or price difference between the two. XLT models come with air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and power windows, locks, and mirrors. XLT Premium models, which are especially geared toward personal use, add tinted, third-row flip-open windows; rear cargo-door stowage; body-color, flat-folding heated mirrors, four audio speakers and a few other trim upgrades.
Very little has changed for 2013 in the Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon.
Whether both passenger and cargo-configured versions are considered, there's really not much else out there competing with the 2013 Ford Transit Connect. Good fuel economy, excellent maneuverability and parking ease are all reasons to consider the Transit Connect Wagon over just about any truck-based commercial van. The Transit Connect is also an excellent pick for urban small business owners who need to transport a combination of passengers and cargo.

Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
