Stylish, compact and surprisingly spacious, the Ford Transit Courier is an ideal van for urban businesses that need to get from A to B in a timely manner.
The Transit Courier is modelled on the Fiesta, which accounts for its attractive looks. The vehicle’s relatively diminutive size ensures that it can handle busy city streets with ease and slot into virtually any parking space. Wide-opening rear doors and a sliding side door provide the driver with plenty of loading and unloading options. Depending on which variant you select, payload ranges from 565kg to 660kg, while all models possess a 2,300-litre cargo capacity.
The Transit Courier comes in Base, Trend, Limited, Sport and Kombi trim levels. A 1.0-litre 99bhp petrol engine comes as standard with Base grades, managing impressive economy while producing CO2 emissions from 124g/km. Optimal efficiency is provided by models that are installed with a 1.5-litre diesel unit, which outputs emissions as low as 112g/km.
A two-speaker stereo (including DAB radio), AUX and USB sockets, and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity are included as standard. Upgrade to the Trend trim for Ford SYNC 3, voice control and a pair of additional speakers. For a touchscreen display and Android and Apple smartphone integration, choose the Limited grade.
Safety features include an Anti-Lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Control, which each help to deliver enhanced traction. Hill-Start Assist is another standard-issue driver aid, one that prevents the van from rolling uncontrolled whenever the engine is started on an incline.
