Expert Quotes:

accessing the capacious cargo area is easy
Motor Trend





Because it was designed from the ground up to be a cargo van, the body design and cargo capacity of the 2010 Ford Transit Connect is highly functional. Leftlane News lauds the "minivan-style sliding side doors" and rear cargo doors that "optionally, open 180 degrees" (up to 255 degrees).

Popular Mechanics calls the cloth driver's seat "unexpectedly comfortable" and praises its adjustable height, recline, and lumbar support, along with an "armrest on the right side." Leftlane News says the front captain's chairs are "easy to slide into" with good passenger legroom. The steering column also not only tilts, but telescopes.

The low-volume, five-passenger Wagon model has a 40/60 split-fold rear seat and "reasonable leg room," notes Leftlane News, but the lack of rear side windows makes it "claustrophobic."

If the 135-cubic-foot payload bay "were any more cavernous," says Popular Mechanics, "it would be inhabited by bats." The "impressive" 1,600-pound payload "should be ample for most users," adds Leftlane News.

As in other commercial vehicles, Ford gives buyers access to "three suppliers who will fit the interior to meet the cargo needs of any business," according to Motor Trend, including a supplier that "applies logo wrap." Road & Track calls the interior shelving and organization system "excellent." And Leftlane News cites the "excellent accessibility with no compromises" provided by the low 20-inch lift-over height.

Reviews say the 2010 Transit Connect is pleasant enough around town, but ConsumerGuide criticizes the "prominent engine noise" in highway cruising, which combines with "a lack of sound insulation in the cargo area" to give an "annoying resonance."

Conclusion

The 2010 Ford Transit Connect focuses on its mission, with comfortable accommodations for the driver, a flexible and customizable interior, and surprising capacity for cargo.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
