Capable, reliable and highly fuel-efficient, like every Transit van. Comfortable, rewarding to drive and full of smart technology like a Ford car. That’s the Transit Courier.The van’s compact size makes it highly manoeuvrable and with one of the best turning circles in its class, you can negotiate busy, narrow streets and tight parking spaces with ease.But don’t be fooled by Transit Courier’s small appearance; a load area of up to 2.4cu.m** gives you up to 10% more load volume than other vehicles in the same class. Take the folding bulkhead with ‘fold and dive’ passenger seat option and you also get a class-leading load length of 2.59m.
Ford SYNC. Advanced hands-free technology
Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. For example, if ‘home’ is listed as a contact on your mobile, you just need to say: “Call home” and the system will automatically dial that number. You can use voice commands to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod® too, or when you’re streaming music from a Bluetooth®-compatible phone. The system can even read your incoming texts aloud.
Bollards, bins, low walls…The rear view camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console and activates automatically when you select reverse gear. The system also displays virtual guidelines to help you park into the smallest of spaces.
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Front wheel drive, command driving position, advanced power steering and sophisticated chassis design… the Transit Courier delivers a driving experience you wouldn’t expect from a van. You have car-like levels of powertrain choice too: Diesel or Petrol, including the revolutionary 1.0L EcoBoost engine. And even fully laden, ECOnetic technologies will help maximise your van’s fuel-efficiency.
Get the most out of your petrol engine
The new 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 100PS and 170Nm of torque with a five speed manual transmission. Combined with other fuel saving technologies such as Auto-Start-Stop, this award-winning engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 litre engine, but achieves around 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions of just 115g/km with Auto-Start-Stop.
Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop
When your van stops at traffic lights or is idling in a queue, this optional technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the aircon, radio and Ford SYNC). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
By combining smart, contemporary design and technologies that exist to serve your needs, the Transit Courier is both an efficient commercial vehicle and a practical, comfortable office on wheels.
A safe home for all your devices
MyFord dock is designed to hold your Sat Nav, Smartphone or MP3 Player and includes a USB connectivity port.
Sensible and secure storage
Like every good workplace, your van is packed with smart storage. The deep centre console includes space for A4 files, so they’re always to hand. For added security, an underseat compartment holds a laptop safely out of view. Even the front door panels make great use of space including a 1.5 litre and 20 oz. bottle holder in each door, as well as a useful coin holder on the passenger side.
Comfortable all year round
Icy mornings, hot summer days…. your van will always provide a pleasant working environment. With optional Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) you just select the exact interior temperature you like and the system maintains it with advanced air conditioning. Heated seat cushions are also available as an option on both front seats.
