There’s Intelligent Speed Assist, for example, which is designed to improve speed control and allow you to concentrate fully on the road ahead. An inbuilt Traffic Sign Recognition camera picks up the speed limit on the stretch of road you’re on, and the Speed Assist automatically sets your maximum speed according to the limit. That way you’re less likely to accidentally exceed the limit.
SYNC 3 – hands-free and effortless
Driving the Ford Tourneo Connect is fun enough as it is, but it’s even better when you’re connected to the Ford SYNC 3. Control your phone, music and navigation system with simple voice commands or by pinching and swiping on the 6″ colour touchscreen. The SYNC 3 also delivers life traffic updates to get you home quicker, or you can ask it for a list of nearby restaurants if you need a bite to eat.
Power and efficiency
The Tourneo Connect features the Ford EcoBlue, a turbo-charged diesel engine providing greater performance and efficiency. It’s also quieter and easier to handle than other previous engines.
Featuring the Ford Flat System, the inside of the Tourneo Connect can be shaped however you need it. The innovative seating allows you to arrange the car for passengers, big bits of kit, heavy pieces of furniture, luggage, or all of the above.
If you opt for the 5-seat Tourneo Connect, you’ll be able to optimise luggage space with 60/40 seats which fold totally flat, allowing more room for big items. There’s no time wasting, either – the seats flip easily up and down in a matter of seconds.
There’s also the 7-seat Grand Tourneo Connect, which is even more adaptable that the 5-seat. The Ford Flat System features the 60/40 split seats in the second row as well as a third row behind which split 50/50. The second row folds into the footwell to give you a load-floor flatter than a pancake.
“Spacious, practical, flexible. The Ford Tourneo Connect offers unique touches which make it stand above other mid-size MVPs on the market, with unmatched luggage space and robust performance on the road. It’s also packed full of smart technologies to make your driving experience both safer and more enjoyable.”
