Ford Transit Connect Wagon Earns Government’s Highest Safety Rating

The 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon has earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government’s highest possible overall rating.

Last year, the European version of Transit Connect Wagon, known as Tourneo Connect, earned a five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Program, the highest possible score from the consumer advocacy group. Transit Connect Wagon – available as a five-passenger or seven-passenger people mover in North America – went on sale here earlier this year.

“Transit Connect Wagon gives people on the go a unique-looking, fuel-efficient vehicle that also provides a high level of safety,” said Steve Kenner, director of Ford’s global automotive safety office. “The suite of safety and driver-assist features available on Transit Connect makes it a great choice for families and businesses.”

Safe and tough

Transit Connect Wagon’s driver and passengers are protected by its body structure – more than half of which is built with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steels, including 16 percent boron steel. Transit Connect Wagon features driver and passenger side airbags for front-row occupants, as well as side curtain airbags for all seating rows.

Customers looking for a flexible people mover benefit from stringent testing conducted during the development of Transit Connect Wagon. The vehicle has been designed and engineered to meet rigorous global commercial vehicle durability standards – the equivalent of more than 3 million miles. This includes more than 250,000 miles of demanding on-road conditions.

Driver-assist and safety features

Transit Connect Wagon is available with a full complement of driver-assist and safety features, making it attractive to families and businesses alike.

Available driver-assist features include a rear view camera, and forward and rear-sensing systems. The rear view camera shows what is behind the vehicle on a screen located in the center dash panel. The display’s guidelines and zoom feature help the driver align the vehicle, which is especially beneficial when towing.
