The demand for small vans in the U.S.

hasn't been strong, and few automakers have dipped a toe into the market.

For passenger-car shoppers, the best alternative to the Ford Transit Connect may be the Mazda 5, a compact minivan with seating for up to six and a fold-away third-row seat.

The 5 has good road manners, and is quick enough given its intended duty.

On the commercial side, there's the Nissan NV2000, a configurable box on wheels with a four-cylinder engine teamed to a CVT and front-wheel drive.

It's just as basic as the base Transit Connect, with even less intent to carrying passengers, but has lots of tall-roof cargo space.

Quick Specs
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect takes some baby steps away from its almost purely commercial root -- and ends up with a nimble, appealing Wagon that will remind some of when minivans weren't so big, bloated, and expensive.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Mazda 5 offers the flexibility, space, and versatility of a minivan, but with the personality of a sporty small car, it's a lot more enjoyable for the commute.
