The all-new Ford Transit Connect was recently named the “International Van of the Year 2014” this month in Moscow at the COMTRANS commercial vehicle exhibition. This is the first time that any auto brand has taken home this award in back to back years. This is now Ford’s 5th International Van of the Year Award adding to their wins in 2001, 2003, 2007, and another in 2013. Ford won the award after a jury of 24 European specialist journalists scored the Transit Connect 130 out of 163 which beat out the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and the Renault Kangoo.
“The all-new Transit Connect has moved the game on for compact vans – and we are really proud to win this significant award again,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president of Product Development, Ford of Europe. “The new Transit Connect is just as tough and hard-working as all our commercial vehicle range, and comes with smart new looks and much lower fuel bills.”
The stylish, new Transit Connect offers class-leading fuel economy, durability, and load carrying ability. It comes with the highly fuel-efficient 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine also offering class-leading petrol economy.
Friendly Ford is proud to see Ford collect another word with the new Transit Connect.
