The Ford Tourneo Connect is the first compact people mover to be awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by independent crash test authority, Euro NCAP.
The Ford Tourneo Connect achieved a score of 94% for adult occupant protection, 85% for child occupant protection, and 83% overall.
The maximum rating achieved by the Ford Tourneo Connect follows the first-in-class, five-star safety rating for the larger Ford Tourneo Custom people mover, which remains the only vehicle in its class to earn five stars.
“The Tourneo Connect gives active families the space and versatility they need to live life to the full,” said Stephen Lesh, Tourneo Connect chief program engineer, Ford of Europe. “This significant endorsement from Euro NCAP shows that we know how important safety is for our customers too.”
“The comprehensive package which includes a driver-set speed assistance system, standard seatbelt reminders on the front seats and the low-speed autonomous braking system Active City Stop, makes the Tourneo Connect an attractive offering for safety-minded drivers,” said Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general, Euro NCAP.
