Back in April, we told you that Van Fleet World had named the brand new Ford Transit Custom as its Van of the Year, as well as Best Medium Panel Van, and now they’ve done a full review of the model. The UK’s favourite van has been redesigned with a sleek new interior and technologies that give enhanced productivity to businesses. It includes a brand new cabin that offers best-in-class stowage, as well as improved comfort, and easy connectivity with SYNC 3 or MyFord Dock options.
So, what did Van Fleet World have to say about our new Transit?
“Though outwardly very similar, there have been some big changes under the skin for Ford’s market-leading Transit Custom, particularly in the cab.
“[…] Inside the cab however there is much more of interest to drivers, with an all-new instrument panel, similar to that of the latest Fiesta car. […] There is up to 25-litres of stowage space in the front of the van, with three open bins on the upper surface of the dash and a glove box capable of holding hanging A4 files.
“[…] Standard equipment includes Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and the van is Ford’s first to be offered with Blind Spot Information with Cross Traffic Alert, helping drivers to avoid collisions when reversing. You can also have Intelligent Speed Assist, with Traffic Sign Recognition, to help prevent drivers from exceeding speed limits.
“On the road the van is very refined, with almost no noise from the engine when cruising. The SelectShift automatic transmission is smooth and responsive, but manual gearbox drivers shouldn’t feel hard done by, as the shift requires little effort.
“Indeed, the latest Transit Custom is a pleasure to drive and well deserving of our Van of the Year award. It ticks an awful lot of boxes for a wide range of customers and it’s little wonder that it remains one of Europe’s best sellers.”
