Ford Transit Courier Carries Off What Van? Van of the Year 2015
The All-New Ford Transit Courier collected the grand prize at the recent What Van? Awards on December 16th after being named as their Van Of The Year 2015. It also scooped Small Van Of The Year.
Other awards for Ford at the ceremony in London included Light Van Of The Year for the Transit Connect, the Pick Up Award for the Ranger, and commendations for the Fiesta Van and the Transit Custom.
The accolades are hardly surprising since the Courier is as capable, comfortable, reliable and fuel efficient as the rest of the Transit range. The van's manoeuvrability and performance also mark it out as among the very best in its class thanks to a tight turning circle, Auto-Stop-Start, and a choice between EcoBoost and advanced Duratorq diesel engines.
The 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engine gives up to 76.3mpg and 97g/km CO2 emissions, while the multi-award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost offers 54.3mpg and 119g/km CO2.
