TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're supporting a small business and need a scaled-down van to fit its needs, the 2012 Ford Transit Connect Wagon fits the bill. The nimble and fuel-efficient 2012 Mazda5 appeals to parents who don’t mind being seen in a minivan but don’t want to feel like they’re driving one.
