Transit Tourneo Custom and Connect get Active
New Transit and Tourneo Custom Active models add rugged SUV style and enhanced practicality with unique design features and a revised specification to suit the demands of both private and business users. Offering generous space and load carrying capacity to enable adventurous lifestyles, the new Active models follow the success of the Ford Fiesta Active and Focus Active passenger vehicles.
Active models are distinguished by an SUV-inspired exterior, including:
- Unique alloy wheels
- Signature Active mesh grille
- Additional cladding on the wheel arches, body sides, rear bumper and mirror caps
- Full-width Active decal at the rear, with Active badges on each wing
- Standard roof rails
For users requiring additional capability in more challenging driving conditions to support their work or leisure needs, Transit Custom Active and Tourneo Custom Active with manual transmission can also be specified with a mechanical LSD.
All Active models benefit from an enhanced interior specification, with unique part-leather seat trim, and the addition of a blue instrument panel accent for Tourneo Custom Active.
The versatile Tourneo Custom Active’s eight-seat interior can easily be reconfigured to reflect users’ demands. The flexible seats can move to give passengers more room or increase luggage space, increased further in the long wheelbase variant. The seats can also be reversed to create a conference seating layout or removed entirely for more luggage space. The seat mounting points can then be used to mount in-vehicle racks to carry bicycles more safely.
Active series are available with power outputs of 130 PS, 170 PS and 185 PS depending on model and specification, with a choice of six-speed automatic and manual gearboxes. Customers can choose from a wide range of variants and body styles to find a vehicle that best suits their needs and lifestyle, including:
- Tourneo Custom Active in SWB and LWB, seating up to eight people including driver
- Transit Custom Active panel van in SWB and LWB, with 3,000 kg GVM
- Transit Custom Active double-cab-in-van in SWB and LWB, with 3,200 kg GVM
The new Active models also benefit from the significant enhancements introduced to the Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom ranges during 2019, with more fuel efficient 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel and EcoBlue Hybrid 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain options as well as improved connectivity features for passenger entertainment, simpler vehicle management and improved vehicle utilisation.
A standard FordPass Connect modem enables Wi-Fi connectivity for up to ten devices. The technology also allows small business customers and owner operators to keep their vehicle safe, secure and running efficiently remotely using their smartphone via the FordPass Pro app, or private customers via the FordPass app.
