The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ford Transit Connect eschews the ungainly mass and size of traditional commercial vans, while the nimble, appealing Wagon that will remind some of when minivans weren't so big and bloated. The 2015 Mazda 5 has good road manners and clean styling, but its flexibility is undercut by poor safety ratings.
