Safety and Security

The Ford Tourneo Connect is equipped with a range of advanced safety technologies that are built to help keep you and your passengers safe. There are also smart security systems that are designed to make sure your vehicle and your belongings are well protected.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist detects vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead, or who could cross the vehicle’s path, and warns you of their presence. If you don’t respond, the system automatically applies the brakes. This technology is designed to help reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether, and functions at speeds of up to 80km/h.

Enhanced stability in difficult driving conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when it’s losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.

Enhanced airbag system

The Tourneo Connect is available with curtain, driver, passenger and side airbags. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response.

Keeping your trailer safely in line

Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.

Advanced systems for more controlled braking

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution combine to ensure that your braking is effective. Emergency Brake Assist also helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Control system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary. And if you brake heavily, the emergency brake light system flashes the brake lights to warn other drivers.

Warns you if your tyres lose pressure

It’s always important to keep your tyres at the correct pressure, to help you save fuel, preserve your tyres and help keep you safe. That’s why sensors constantly monitor every wheel and alert you if there’s a problem. You can also get alerts delivered straight to your phone via the FordPass app, monitoring tyre pressure, oil-life and lots more.

Never forget to wear your seatbelt

A driver’s seatbelt minder warns you if you ever forget to ‘buckle up’ and is fitted as standard on every model.

Helping to keep children safe

The Tourneo Connect is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. It comes with rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.

Remote Control Central Locking with Anti-tamper door locks

The Tourneo Connect has remote control central door locking, which is more secure than ever. That’s because you can choose to open one individual door while the other doors stay securely locked, until you activate a switch on the driver’s door. This same switch controls the locking and unlocking of all the vehicle’s doors. All door locks are protected by anti-tamper shielding designed to prevent them being broken by force.

Two high level alarm options

The Tourneo Connect is available with an optional perimeter alarm system, which is set off if the doors or bonnet are opened by force. A more sophisticated Thatcham Category 1 alarm system is also available. This automatically arms itself when you lock the vehicle and a powerful alarm sounds if triggered by forced entry, the vehicle being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside. With the FordPass App, you can receive a notification if your car’s alarm is activated, no matter where you are, plus SecuriAlert can alert you on your smartphone of any unauthorised access attempts – even with a stolen or duplicate key.

4-star EURO NCAP rating

The Ford Transit Connect has earned a safety rating of four stars from EURO NCAP. This score is awarded when a vehicle performs well under testing, both for its collision protection and its collision avoidance (and/or mitigative) capabilities.
