Transit Connect wins

The all-new Ford Transit Connect has been named International Van of the Year 2014 at the COMTRANS commercial vehicle exhibition in Moscow as Ford became the first single manufacturer to win the award for two consecutive years.

Ford registered a record-equalling fifth International Van of the Year victory after the jury of 24 European specialist journalists awarded the Transit Connect 130 points from a maximum possible 163.

Transit Connect finished ahead of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (123) and Renault Kangoo (25).

The award for the all-new Transit Connect follows previous successes for the Transit (2001), Transit Connect (2003), Transit (2007) and Transit Custom (2013).

"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."

As Ford completely redesigns its entire commercial vehicle line-up over a two-year period, the new Transit Connect joins an all-new four-strong Transit range, alongside the Transit Custom and the forthcoming two-tonne Transit and Transit Courier to be launched in 2014.
