As its name suggests, the new Ford Transit Custom is an adaptable mid-sized van that can be tailored to suit your requirements. Smaller than the full-size Transit, the Custom is a refined yet practical van that you can rely on to get the job done.
The Transit Custom defines the notion of one-size-fits-all, offering a variety of body shapes and spatial configurations. For instance, you can opt for a long or short wheelbase, coupled with a standard of extra-height roof, which provides between 6.0 and 8.3 cubic metres of load space. The Double-Cab-In-Van model adds extra seating between the driver and the bulkhead, whilst the totally flexible Kombi can accommodate up to six folding, removable seats in the load bay.
The cabin of the Custom exhibits little of the spartan quality of earlier Transit vans. Finished in high quality, durable plastic, it enjoys comfortable, highly adjustable seats and a host of technology. An aux input and 12V charging points come as standard, whilst the Trend specification includes Ford SYNC audio streaming for entertainment on-the-go. Upgrade to the Limited trim level for DAB radio and heated front seats.
New for 2016, the Custom comes with a 2.0-litre EcoBlue TDCi diesel engine, available in three different outputs –104bhp, 128bhp, and 168bhp. Both the 104bhp and 128bhp return up to 46mpg, highly economical for a van of this size. Those opting for the powerful 168bhp won’t lose out, with the engine returning a similar 43mpg.
