Performance and Efficiency

The Ford Tourneo Connect is available with the multiple award-winning Ford EcoBoost petrol engine, or the upgraded EcoBlue diesel engine. Both options deliver exceptional performance and fuel efficiency. And when paired with our new, more refined 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, you’ll enjoy effortless gear changes and smoother journeys.

Our 75 PS and 100 PS TDCi diesel engines impress with their refined power and superb efficiency. On town or city roads to long drives on the motorway, their smooth torque delivery is invaluable on inclines or when overtaking.

The Tourneo Connect features an advanced new automatic transmission. With improved acceleration and super-smooth gear changes, it’s engineered from the ground up to enhance your driving experience, optimise fuel efficiency, and maximise the performance of the car.

Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, 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).
