New Ford Tourneo aces on practicality

New model also aims to major on comfort to take on rival MPVs from Mercedes, VW and Hyundai.

Ford claims the new Ford Tourneo raises the bar in the multi-activity vehicle segment, featuring a new platform engineered for maximum versatility and comfort. Designed to enhance the ownership experience for both personal use and business customers, it offers spacious accommodation for up to eight occupants.

Initially available in Trend specification and a long-wheelbase configuration, it is powered by a fuel-efficient 100kW/360Nm 2.0L Single Turbo diesel engine with AdBlue, in combination with a new smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. Additional models will join the Tourneo line-up later this year. Developed to offer occupants significantly enhanced levels of comfort and convenience, while the stylish new interior features superior craftsmanship and material quality.

The new seats are lighter than those in the outgoing model and the second-row features integrated seatbelts, so reconfiguring the cabin – including into a useful six-person conference layout – can be done more quickly and easily. With the second- and third-row seats removed, a massive 6.8m3 of loading volume is unleashed, along with the ability to carry three standard Euro pallets. ISOFIX points are available on all three seats in the second-row as well as the two outboard seats in the third row.

The instrument panel features an ergonomic 13-inch central touchscreen built around Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment system, with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility as standard. Wireless charging is available as an option. The central screen is complemented by a new 12-inch instrument cluster that includes a seven-inch configurable digital display. A column-mounted shifter for vehicles with an automatic transmission frees up more knee and leg space as well as making ingress and egress easier.

The Tourneo is equipped with a 5G FordPass Connect modem, allowing owners to remotely lock or unlock the doors, remotely start the vehicle to cool or heat the cabin, and get vehicle-specific health alerts – all via the FordPass app. The modem also enables wireless Ford Power-Up software updates to improve Tourneo’s features and capabilities without requiring a trip to the dealership.
