The Ford Transit Custom is the UK’s most popular, best-selling van. So, you may be wondering why we need to go to the effort of finding five reasons to buy one.
Well, this medium van has many more reasons than that – in fact, it was a difficult task trying to narrow the reasons down to five!
The Ford Transit Custom provides a minimum load volume of 6 cubic metres, which in itself is impressive for such a compact-looking van. The long wheelbase, high roof model offers 8.3 cubic metres, as well as the ability to accommodate 8’x 4’ boards – either face down or upright. Even the smaller model can take three euro pallets. You’ll fit items up to 3m in length in all models – 3.4m in the long wheelbase variant. The side-mounted cargo tie-down points provide a means to protect you, your passengers and your cargo.
With its low load heights and a sliding side door aperture wide enough to take an euro pallet, the Ford Transit Custom really does help you make the most of your loadspace. The rear doors can be opened to 180 degrees – or locked at 90 degrees. You’ll find a minimum of two courtesy lights in the load area for added visibility. Finally, an innovative load-through bulkhead flap lets you safely carry the longer, more awkward items and increases the usable load volume.
Welcome to the latest generation of in-vehicle connectivity. That’s Ford’s opening line to describe their aptly-named SYNC system. The system offers advanced connectivity so that you can connect your phone to the in-car system. It’s a lot more convenient than it sounds – you can play music, make and receive calls and even control apps on your smartphone with simple voice commands.
Ford vans have left nothing to chance when it comes to safety. The Ford Transit Custom was the first van in its class to have achieved a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. In addition, there are a multitude of safety features fitted to the Ford Transit Custom. These include lane keeping alert – which notifies you when you approach road marking without activating the indicator, emergency brake assist which increases pressure on the brakes when an emergency braking situation is identified. There’s also trailer sway control to stabilise your trailer when necessary as well as hill start assist which prevents you rolling down a slope when you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal.
With the Ford Transit Custom, Ford vans have one of the best-looking vans on the market. It borrows heavily from the passenger car range, inside and out. Base models may not be the most visually appealing but choose any of the other trim levels, Trend, Limited or Sport, and you’ll have yourself a stylish working vehicle. In fact, it looks so good that your wife will even let you park it on the drive!
