Ford has been completely updating its people-mover family – what Americans prefer to call minivans – in recent months, and the latest version of the Tourneo Courier is making its debut at this week’s Geneva Motor Show.
Why does that matter to American motorists? Because it will land in the States bearing the Transit Connect Wagon badge.
“Tourneo stands for smart, do-anything vehicles that are designed for people who live life to the fullest,” boasted Barb Samardzich, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “However big your personal mission, we have a Tourneo people-mover that will help you squeeze the most out of every moment – whether that’s cycling with friends or a day with the kids.”
Completing the updated Tourneo family and set for a European launch in the mid-2014 model-year, the maker contends the Courier will have a number of advantages over key competitors, including class-leading space, practicality, fuel economy and safety features.
