2015 Transit Connect Reviews.jpgBengt Halvorson of The Car Connection says, "Take what makes SUVs and vans so appealing, and omit much of what might turn you off, and you get the 2015 Ford Transit Connect. It manages to dodge the stigma (and bloat) of modern, not-so-mini minivans; and it's a great alternative to hefty full-size vans."

Edmunds.com says, "Now that Ford is offering its compact Transit Connect cargo van and passenger wagon in the U.S., families and small-business owners wanting a van with a smaller footprint have an excellent alternative to consider."
