A NEW version of Ford's Tourneo Connect MPV will be on the road in 2022 and the vehicle will feature a high-tech interior with some 19 driver assistance aids as well as all-wheel-drive.

Capable of carrying objects up the three metres long, the seven seat model will be available with either a 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine or a 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel.

The petrol version of the van-based model can average a best fuel return of 44.8mpg while the more economical diesel is rated at 58.8 to the gallon and seven-speed auto boxes will be offered as options on both engines.

Emissions range from 126g/km for a 102ps diesel model and 144g/km for a 114ps EcoBoost to 179g/km for the petrol version with an automatic transmission.

New features include assisted driving to reduce stress and Ford's Pro Trailer Backup Assist to simplify manoeuvres when towing.

Onboard technology includes a 10-inch display screen in lieu of the 8.25-inch screen on lower grade versions while a multi-mode digital instrument panel can also be specified.

Driving aids available include lane keeping, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and cross traffic alerts.

The all-wheel-drive set up will be available on higher powered 122ps manual diesel engined versions.

Prices and further specifications will be announced closer to the launch date early next year.
