For the past 2 1/5 years I have been driving a Vauxhall Movano but recently I have been forced to switch from my Movano to the new Ford Transit van and was rather hesitant to say the least! I really enjoyed driving the Movano and after taking a cursory look at the Transit I was definitely NOT impressed.
The steering wheel feels smaller than my Mitsubishi Colts one and the seats are not as comfortable as the Movano. It engine is also louder than the Movano and although in the literature it say you get around the 30-40 mpg you will be lucky to get 29-32 mpg!
I have stated how I was adamant that I would resist this new vehicle being forced upon us.....but I can't help myself but love it! Ford have done it again, they have made another Transit that will be setting the trend for others to follow because when you drive a Transit you know you are driving something special in the van world!
the steering is really smooth and responsive the braking system seems greatly improved not to mention the load area seems BIGGER and the side door is definitely bigger, making it easier to both load and unload.
In short I feel like a change man now driving the Transit, it is smooth, easy, oddly enjoyable and most of all fun! I would recommend that if you have any prejudices or "hang-ups" regarding Ford or Transits then just give this one a try and I think you will find yourself converted too!
Summary: Definitely a future classic to sit alongside the other transits
