So, you’re in need of new wheels with loads of room and/ or seven seats. But, let’s face it, chances are you’re not reading this review, because you are instead perusing our reviews on the latest and greatest SUVs on sale. And why not; SUVs offer you all that practicality, with a splodge of je ne sais quoi to boot.
But if you couldn’t give a hoot about the latest trends in style, sass or shapeliness, but simply wish to lug around multiple flat packs or more than five folks in one sitting, then don’t forget you still have the option of an MPV.
Our favourite is the Volkswagen Touran, but Citroën has its Grand C4 Spacetourer, Renault the Grand Scenic and Vauxhall the Zafira Tourer, so your options are plentiful. Those are the more car-like models, but there’s also another genre of MPV: those based on a van, of which this Ford Tourneo Connect is one.
Is it simply a van with windows, though, or is it worth considering as an alternative to the above? Read on and we’ll let you know.
