The comprehensive powertrain line-up of petrol and diesel engines is expected to deliver class‑leading efficiency for the new Tourneo Connect, with anticipated fuel consumption from 4.9 l/100km and CO2 emissions from 127 g/km. 1 As well as bringing all-wheel drive to the multi‑activity vehicle for the first time, the powertrain range also features an automatic transmission option for both petrol and diesel engines available on all length variants.
The line-up of four-cylinder turbocharged engines includes a 1.5‑litre EcoBoost petrol engine producing 114 PS and 220 Nm of torque, 1 and two EcoBlue diesels developing 122 PS and 320 Nm of torque, or 112 PS and 280 Nm of torque. 1 Auto Start-Stop technology is standard across the range for optimised efficiency. Both diesel engines feature an innovative “twin-dosing” system that injects AdBlue upstream of two selective catalytic converters to help reduce nitrogen oxides, and are also compatible with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) and Gas to Liquids (GTL) alternative fuels.
All models feature a smooth six-speed manual transmission as standard. The seven‑speed PowerShift dual-clutch automatic gearbox delivers fast, smooth gearchanges for manual gearbox-rivalling performance with the comfort and convenience of an automatic. Steering wheel-mounted paddles and a Sport mode enhance the experience for keen drivers.
Customers can now benefit from all-wheel drive for the first time on Tourneo Connect to increase traction on loose and slippery surfaces for more confident driving. The system automatically distributes torque between the wheels depending on driving conditions and surfaces, helping drivers maintain progress in more challenging conditions.
All-wheel drive is available on models fitted with the 2.0-litre 122 PS EcoBlue diesel engine and six‑speed manual gearbox and does not compromise interior space or loading height. Engine under-shield protection is available from the factory to support customers who frequently drive on rough surfaces.
The all-new Tourneo Connect offers seven-seat capability on both short‑wheelbase L1 and long‑wheelbase L2 models for more practicality and convenience. When not in use, the second and third seat rows can be folded, tumbled or removed to create a spacious load area for work or sports equipment. The front passenger seat folds flat to allow items up to 3 metres long such as kayaks, flat-pack furniture or timber to be safely transported within the vehicle. 2
The new interior elevates cabin comfort without compromising the practicality that Tourneo Connect customers love. Large sliding side doors on each side of the vehicle help children and elderly occupants move in and out in restricted spaces where conventional doors may not be able to open fully. Convenience is enhanced by plentiful cup holders, cubbies and charging ports, while the available panoramic glass roof and dual‑zone climate control help make the cabin airy and more comfortable on long road trips. Durable, easy-to-clean rubber floor mats are available as an accessory for enhanced practicality and protection.
All Tourneo Connect models feature a large user-friendly touchscreen on the dashboard that puts key vehicle systems at the driver’s fingertips. An 8.25-inch screen comes as standard, and customers able to specify a 10-inch screen on all series if desired. The 10-inch screen is standard on Titanium, Sport and Active series in right-hand drive vehicles. 3 The touchscreen provides controls for navigation, audio and cabin climate, while other features such as telephone connection, vehicle information and audio configuration are grouped in sub-menus to be unobtrusive while driving.
