Ford Grand Tourneo Connect Leasing
The seven-seat Ford Grand Tourneo Connect is a rugged but cleverly-engineered people mover that's sourced from commercial vehicle roots but offers enough sophistication to suit the needs of many growing families.
Style and practicality. Two mutually exclusive qualities you’d have thought. Not according to most makers of compact MPVs. Without exception, they all claim somehow to have combined elegant looks with van-like capacity. We wouldn’t blame you for being sceptical about that if you’re shopping in this market. And in response, we’d direct you to this car, Ford’s Grand Tourneo Connect.
Why Would You Want One?
Ford’s Grand Tourneo Connect is a family-friendly vehicle that won’t see you having to pack light. Yes it’s a van-based product: no, it doesn’t constantly remind you of that fact. There’s the option of up to seven seats in the kind of properly extended bodystyle that direct rivals don’t bother to offer. And carriage capacity that’s even better than Ford’s much bigger S-MAX and Galaxy MPVs. A surprising product then, that’s as happy with passengers as packages, will deal with long loads in its stride and look after your life with its clever SYNC telemetry. In short, if you were shopping in this segment, you’d have to consider it. Ford Tourneo lease deals can be tempting too.
Give Me the Key Details...
In this model, third row seating is optional but we can’t imagine many potential customers for this car not wanting it. Every second and third row seat has integral head restraints and, of course, three-point seatbelts. The second row seat backs fold and tumble and can be removed, allowing you to maximise the cargo space. The third row of seats split 50/50 and can be folded flat.
Outer second row rear seats have ISOFIX anchorage points, making it easy to fit the latest removable child seats. You get storage boxes on both the driver and passenger sides of the dashboard, 1.5-litre holders in the front doors, floor stowage and even 'aircraft style' overhead lockers. Overall, there's up to 2,620-litres of space. You get up to 1,264-litres of space in a seven-seat model with the two rear seats folded.
Your Ford’s Tourneo lease quote will be based around the choice you make from an engine line-up that has a familiar look.

The 100PS variant gets a five-speed manual box, while the 120PS version features a six-speed stick shift. There's also the option of Ford's Powershift automatic transmission.
The Bottom Line
As an exercise in making the right calls between sophistication and simplicity, with this model, Ford has got it spot on. It’s especially frugal when equipped with the brand's efficient 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engines. When used as a five-seater, you get a huge amount of useful luggage space. Commercial vehicles have come a long way in recent years, which ought to have led to a vast improvement in cars of this kind. Here at last it has.
