The Ford Transit Connect is clearly the best of a small group of smaller vans.
It pioneered the segment in 2010, and the second generation is simply nicer and better than the two competitors sold under three labels.
The Ram ProMaster City, a Fiat van in drag, is efficient (its 4-cylinder engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission) and cleverly designed, but it simply feels cruder and slightly agricultural.
The Nissan NV200 van is cheaper, as well as narrower, but it feels it.
The NV200 and its Chevy City Express twin, which is identical except for the badge, are the value entries, but buyers will likely enjoy their time behind the wheel in the Ford more.
