Ford Transit Courier Wins WhatVan? Van of the Year 2015

Ford Transit Courier Wins Van of the Year 2015

We're delighted to announce that the Transit Courier has been named WhatVan? Van of the Year 2015!

The Transit Courier also picked up 'Small Van of the Year', the Transit Connect topped the Light Van category and Ranger was awarded 'Pick-up of the Year'.

The city van is the final piece in the jigsaw for the Blue Oval brand, which has transformed its product portfolio in the past two years. All of the new models have raised the bar in their respective sectors, but the Courier sees the brand enter an area it has not competed in before, slotting into the line-up between the car-derived Fiesta Van and the Transit Connect light van.

The Courier follows the Transit Custom onto the podium, as the medium-sized van collected the Van of the Year award in 2013 and 2014, becoming the first model to take the top prize in consecutive years.

Not surprisingly, the Courier came out on top in the Small Van category and What Van? said: "The Courier has breathed new life into the segment, offering a combination of practicality, quality, efficiency and style not before offered."

The Courier is a stylish, high-quality and eminently competent compact van.

Ford has targeted the Courier at downsizers in a market where customers are ever more conscious of their volume and payload needs.

The Courier makes efficient use of its small dimensions. It offers 2.4m3 of load area and a 660kg payload as well as a wider range of engines than its rivals, with 75hp 1.5 and 95hp 1.6 diesels up for grabs alongside the 100hp 1.0-litre petrol Ecoboost unit that should find favour with urban operators.

Overall, Ford performed strongly at the awards with the Transit Connect winning the Light Van of the Year Award, the Ranger retaining the Pick-up category, and the Fiesta Van claiming Highly Commended in the Small Van category behind the Transit Courier
