2022 Ford Tourneo Connect design

The Ford Tourneo Connect is an MPV based on a van. In fact, although Ford doesn't mention it once in its reveal, the Tourneo Connect is actually based on a Volkswagen van – the Volkswagen Caddy, which with its own additional seats is called the Caddy Life.

However, the Tourneo Connect gets its own unique look at the front: you'll notice Ford's recognisable grille design and headlights seen on other cars in its range. Around the back, there's a Ford badge and a unique taillight design, but otherwise, it's hard to distinguish it from the Caddy Life.

There will be four trim levels available, each with its own look. Entry-level Trend models get a gloss black grille surround and steel wheels, Titanium models come with satin chrome detailing, privacy glass and 16-inch alloy wheels, while Sport cars get bonnet stripes, a more aggressive body kit and 17-inch alloys.

Lastly, Active models (the blue car in our pictures above) gets a more rugged appearance, with unique 17-inch alloys, black plastic wheel arch mouldings and a honeycomb grille design.

2022 Ford Tourneo Connect interior and infotainment

Inside the Ford Tourneo Connect, you'll notice Volkswagen Caddy. The Ford gets its own steering wheel, seats and infotainment graphics, but the general architecture is the same.

Still, that's no bad thing, because VW knows a thing or two about build quality and the overall look is classy and modern.

The Tourneo Connect will get an 8.25-inch screen for its infotainment system as standard, but a 10-inch screen will be optional and come as standard from second-rung Titananium.

A set of 10.25-inch digital driver's dials will be standard on Sport models and optional on Active and Titanium cars, but not available on entry-level trend models.

2022 Ford Tourneo Connect practicality and boot space

This is sort of the Tourneo Connect's forté, and guess what? It's very good.

The Tourneo Connect comes with seven seats as standard, but in two body lengths: short and long wheelbase models.

On both models, the second and third row seats are all individual and can be folded, tumbled or removed completely if needed. The front passenger seat can also be folded.

For better access, the Tourneo Connect comes with sliding rear doors on both sides, it gets Isofix mounting points on all of its rear seats and comes with numerous cubbies inside for storage.

In terms of boot space, with the rear seats removed, the short-wheelbase model has 2,600 litres of cargo space, but this grows to 3,100 litres in the long-wheelbase version. Ford hasn't given figures for boot space with five and seven seats in place just yet.

2022 Ford Tourneo Connect engines and gearbox

The Tourneo Connect comes with either a 1.5-litre petrol with 114hp or a 2.0-litre diesel with either 102 or 122hp.

A six-speed manual is standard, but a seven-speed dual-cluth automatic is available on the petrol and higher-powered diesel. All-wheel drive is available with the higher-powered diesel and manual gearbox only.

2022 Ford Tourneo Connect prices and on-sale date

The Ford Tourneo will go on sale in early 2022 in the UK.

There's no word on prices just yet, but expect it to start at around £23,000 when it goes on sale next year.
