What We Like

Small and nimble package; reasonably priced; two wheelbase lengths

What We Don't

Lower trim levels are sparsely equipped; bigger engine not available with the longer wheelbase; base engine's so-so fuel economy; no slide or recline function for the second-row seats

Overview

What's New in the 2016 Ford Transit Connect?

In the range-topping Titanium trim, fold-flat bucket seats in the second row are standard. Panther Black exterior paint is replaced by Shadow Black. Options now include 17-inch alloy wheels, a blind spot monitoring system with cross-traffic alert and a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat in the midlevel XLT trim. A perimeter alarm system also comes with the optional remote-starting feature. See the 2016 Ford Transit Connect models for sale near you

How Much Does a 2016 Ford Transit Connect Cost?

The 2016 Ford Transit Connect Wagon is a passenger vehicle based on the Transit Connect cargo van with full windows all around, dual sliding side doors and a choice of rear cargo doors or a lift gate. It's offered with a short wheelbase (104.8 inches) or a long wheelbase (120.6 inches).

The short-wheelbase Wagon has five seats, while the long-wheelbase Wagon adds a third seating row for 7-passenger capacity. Both the second-row and third-row seats fold flat and can be removed.

The XL ($26,295) comes only with the long wheelbase, along with three seating rows, power second-row windows and rear climate controls. Other features include 16-in steel wheels, remote keyless entry, power windows, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery and floor covering, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel and a folding front passenger seat, as well as an AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary input, plus a couple of rear speakers.

The XLT comes with either the short wheelbase ($25,820) or long wheelbase ($27,820). It has power heated mirrors, fog lights, a 4.2-in driver information display with steering-wheel controls, cloth upholstery, cruise control, a CD player and an upgraded driver's seat with manual lumbar adjustment. But there are no rear climate controls with the short-wheelbase XLT.

The Titanium ($30,295) is only available as a long-wheelbase version. It brings 16-in alloy wheels, adaptive fog lights, automatic wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 6-way power driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic front climate control, separate manual rear climate controls, SYNC voice command functionality and a rearview camera.

Some of the higher-end standard features are available as options on lesser models. Other options, depending on trim and configuration, include MyFord Touch (which adds a 6.5-in touchscreen with navigation), 17-in alloy wheels, a fixed panoramic sunroof, satellite radio/HD Radio, front and rear parking sensors and Ford MyKey with programmable usage restrictions.

When the second-row seats in the short-wheelbase version are folded down, cargo space measures 77.1 cu ft. If the seats are in place, there's still a considerable 46.9 cu ft.

Long-wheelbase versions can accommodate 104.2 cu ft. of cargo space behind the front seats. Behind the second row, it's 58.9 cu ft. With the third row set as far forward as it will go, there's 19.8 cu ft.; when it's moved back as far as possible for legroom, there's 15.7 cu ft.

Competition

2016 Ford Transit Connect vs the competition

2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van -- The Metris is bigger and more expensive, but it's still of a useful, well-judged size and perfectly capable. It provides seating for eight.

2016 RAM ProMaster City -- The ProMaster City is also based on a European van and provides decent power. There's no option for a third row, though.

Used Toyota Sienna -- The Sienna is spacious, comfortable and more family-friendly. It's also the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive.
