TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2013 Ford Transit Connect

2013 Ford Transit Connect Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
The Transit Connect's second-row bench is roomy and fairly comfortable for two people, but somewhat tight for three. The Sienna has another half-foot of shoulder room. Also, the seatback in the Ford's second row does not recline. If you do want captain's chairs, well, they're not an option. The situation worsens in the Ford's third row, which is less substantial and much lower to the floor than the third-row seats in the Honda or the Toyota. Unlike the Transit Connect's second row, its third-row seat does slide fore-aft (about six inches) and recline. Slide it all the way back, and legroom becomes almost generous. Still, it isn't a place many adults would want to spend much time. On top of this, it should be easier to open and close the Transit Connect's sliding doors and to get into its third row. The second row doesn't tip or slide forward like those in conventional minivans. Instead, it must be pushed to the floor in a fairly difficult two-step procedure. see full Ford Transit Connect review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2013 Ford Transit Connect

2013 Ford Transit Connect Powertrain: Cons
YearComment
As mentioned when discussing fuel economy, the Transit Connect's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine doesn't have things easy. Its 169 horsepower are just adequate for accelerating a two-ton vehicle. While I didn't have an issue with this personally--the Transit Connect was generally as quick as I needed it to be--anyone expecting the relatively effortless thrust of the Sienna's 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine will be disappointed. Compounding the issue, if and when you do need to exercise the Ford's four it sounds strained. Ford offers a 178-horsepower turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine as a $795 option with the regular wheelbase Transit Connect. For some reason, though, this engine isn't offered in the long wheelbase van. Beyond a slight bump in power output, the smaller but boosted engine is worth a couple more mpg in the EPA's tests. Much better for performance would be the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine offered in the related Ford Escape and Ford Focus. If Ford is serious about marketing the Transit Connect as a family vehicle, it should offer this engine. see full Ford Transit Connect review
