All-new Ford Tourneo Connect multi-activity vehicle
The all-new Tourneo offers the ideal solution for busy lifestyles with a comfortable and highly flexible interior, full seven-seat capability and a choice of two lengths to suit every need. It is perfectly suited to handle everything from transporting camping gear and sports equipment to providing a practical partner for small businesses.
The smart, connected cabin introduces the latest digital cockpit technologies, while a comprehensive suite of sophisticated driver assistance systems helps make the all‑new Tourneo Connect comfortable and easy to drive. New features include assisted driving to reduce stress and Pro Trailer Backup Assist to simplify manoeuvres when towing.
Also making their Tourneo Connect debuts are a confidence‑enhancing all-wheel drive system, and a new automatic transmission option for petrol-powered models, both part of an expanded range of new petrol and diesel powertrains anticipated to offer class-leading efficiency.
“The all-new Tourneo Connect is the first of an exciting new generation of Tourneo vehicles from Ford. Its fresh new design, seven-seat versatility and new all-wheel drive technology plus its all-important connectivity features offer a winning combination for our customers,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Ford Pro, Europe. “We’ve taken the qualities that customers value and have raised them to another level, creating a new Tourneo Connect that’s ready for any challenge – whether it’s work or play.”
Flexible, practical cabin
The all-new Tourneo Connect offers seven-seat capability on both short‑wheelbase L1 and long‑wheelbase L2 models for more practicality and convenience. When not in use, the second and third seat rows can be folded, tumbled or removed to create a spacious load area for work or sports equipment. The front passenger seat folds flat to allow items up to 3 metres long such as kayaks, flat-pack furniture or timber to be safely transported within the vehicle. 2
The new interior elevates cabin comfort without compromising the practicality that Tourneo Connect customers love. Large sliding side doors on each side of the vehicle help children and elderly occupants move in and out in restricted spaces where conventional doors may not be able to open fully. Convenience is enhanced by plentiful cup holders, cubbies and charging ports, while the available panoramic glass roof and dual‑zone climate control help make the cabin airy and more comfortable on long road trips. Durable, easy-to-clean rubber floor mats are available as an accessory for enhanced practicality and protection.
With the second and third row seating removed, Tourneo Connect offers up to 3.1 m3 of load volume in L2 models and 2.6 m3 in L1 models. 2 Carrying longer items or bulky leisure equipment is facilitated by maximum load lengths of 2,265 mm behind the first row of seats, 1,452 mm behind the second, and 629 mm behind the third for L2 variants (1,913 mm, 1100 mm and 317 mm for L1 variants).
The carefully selected materials and finishes used in Tourneo Connect’s cabin create a comfortable, premium feeling across the range, with unique treatments for each of the series variants, such as the Active model with its stylish blue graphics and contrast stitching.
Distinctive exterior designs
The all-new Tourneo Connect features the bold and expressive design language of Ford’s latest passenger cars. The front has been styled with strong, sculpted lines to create a sporty impression, with each series having its own distinctive appearance.
Ford’s SUV-inspired Active series offers a blend of rugged style and premium details. Unique 17-inch alloy wheels feature a two-tone finish of dark and machined metal, part of the signature Active look that includes a honeycomb grille, a metallic-effect skid plate and additional body mouldings around the wheel arches, sills and bumpers. The palette of ten vibrant different paint finishes includes new Boundless Blue, the unique launch colour for Tourneo Connect Active.
All-new digital cockpit technologies
All Tourneo Connect models feature a large user-friendly touchscreen on the dashboard that puts key vehicle systems at the driver’s fingertips. An 8.25-inch screen comes as standard, and customers able to specify a 10-inch screen on all series if desired. The 10-inch screen is standard on Titanium, Sport and Active series in right-hand drive vehicles. 3 The touchscreen provides controls for navigation, audio and cabin climate, while other features such as telephone connection, vehicle information and audio configuration are grouped in sub-menus to be unobtrusive while driving.
Customers can also specify an advanced digital cluster display in place of the traditional dials – a feature that is standard on Sport models and available on Titanium and Active models. The digital cluster has a 10.25-inch screen in the instrument binnacle that can work alongside the central infotainment system to offer drivers more information and control. The display puts vehicle alerts, signed speed limits and current gear at the top of the screen for easier reading, above a multi-way configurable display showing:
- Summary – for information about the current journey
- Classic – for a simulated traditional speedometer and tachometer
- Navigation – for a route map and information for additional guidance
- Driver Assist – for the status of the vehicle’s active driver assistance systems
Vehicles with the 10-inch touchscreen feature a FordPass Connect modem to help customers stay connected while on the road. 4 Available Online Navigation 5 uses cloud data to offer additional live updates including traffic reports and alternative routes; nearby fuel stations including prices and opening hours; online map updates; and parking details including availability, distance and price.
Tourneo Connect customers can remotely access more information using the FordPass or FordPass Pro smartphone apps. 6 Using their phone, customers can see and control:
- Status of lights, windows and doors
- Vehicle locking and unlocking
- Vehicle location and parking position, including address and time spent parked
- Average fuel consumption
- Vehicle health report to help proactive maintenance and avoid unplanned downtime
- New levels of driver assistance
Tourneo Connect offers 19 driver assistance technologies to make journeys more comfortable, less demanding and safer. The generous standard specification includes:
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning
- Lane-Keeping System
- Driver Alert
- Cruise Control
- Adjustable Speed Limiting System
- Hill Start Assist
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert are also available.
The all-new Tourneo Connect also introduces new driver assistance technology bundles. Parking Pack adds Active Park Assist with Park Out Assist, which can identify and automatically steer into and out of perpendicular and parallel parking spaces while the driver controls the accelerator, braking and gear selection.
