The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. If you don't mind being seen in a minivan--but don't want to feel like you're driving one--the 2013 Mazda 5 fits the bill, though it's short on some features.
