Parkers Van Deal of the Week

  • Excellent ride and handling
  • Up to three metre load lengths
  • Yours for £10,291 plus VAT


For this Friday’s Parkers Van Deal of the Week, we are looking at the small van sector. Better handling, lower running costs and a bigger load area means this new generation of the Ford Transit Connect, launched in 2013, is head and shoulders better than the previous model.

Representing a saving of £3,256, this deal from buy-a-car means the Ford Transit Connect 1.6 TDCi 73bhp SWB could be yours for just £10,291 plus VAT.


Despite this model being the short wheelbase, loads of up to three metres in length are still able to be accommodated thanks to a folding passenger seat and a gate in the bulkhead. Total load volume stands at 2.9 cubic metres, and payload at 625kg.

Ford C-Max Platform

Based on the Ford C-Max platform, the Transit Connect benefits from passenger car refinement and handling and this particular van comes with the 73bhp variant of the 1.6 turbo-diesel engine, which provides ample torque (220Nm) and great fuel economy (58.9mpg combined).

Sales and aftersales

Long 20,000 mile service intervals further reduce the Transit Connect’s running costs and new sales include one year breakdown assist and Ford’s recently extended commercial vehicle warranty of up to three years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
