Best bits

Not so great

Overall verdict

"Small in size, the Ford Tourneo Courier is designed to combine the handling of a hatchback with the practically of a compact van."

Ford Tourneo Courier Side

As a result it's an ideal choice if you want a no nonsense do-it-all runabout or are after a car on the Motability scheme, helped by sliding side doors. The design of the rear chassis frame and placement of the fuel tank centrally make it relatively easy to convert into a WAV (Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle).


It is of course based on the Ford Transit Courier van and its practicality is evident in the 708 litres of bootspace. Remove the rear seats and the Courier Kombi will provide an even bigger 1656 litres of carrying capacity, which makes it useful for all manner of jobs, with room for a small sofa, camping equipment or flat pack furniture. 


Access is easy too, thanks to the low boot floor and wide opening area of the rear doors. The only problem with that is they need to be unbolted otherwise they take up half the load space, even when tumble folded.


The engine line-up is limited three options - one petrol and two diesels - although none of the engines are particularly potent, which can leave the Courier feeling rather breathless when fully loaded. That said, both the petrol and diesels are efficient with a claimed maximum of 76.3mpg for the original 1.6 TDCi (later replaced by a 1.5 TDCi).


The Courier Kombi uses the same platform as the Fiesta, which provides good handling with positive corning and excellent road holding. Even with five adults and a loaded boot, the Courier Kombi is rewarding to drive with its wide windscreen and large side windows giving great visibility and making it easy to and park.


The sliding doors makes it easy to get everyone in and out of the Tourneo Courier. While the the interior of the Courier Kombi disappointed, with lots of cheap, dark plastics that cover the doors, lower dash and centre stack, it has been significantly improved in Tourneo Courier trim.


However, despite the occasional shortcomings, the Tourneo Courier remains a fun and compact MPV that provides lots of everyday practically. The interior is spacious, with acres of head and leg room, while the Fiesta-base make the Courier easy to drive on all roads and in all weathers. 


By 2019, with the demise of the C-MAX, Ford had finally introduced the Tourneo Courier to the UK with either 1.0 EcoBoost or 1.5 TDCI engines and a 6-speed manual transmission. Previously in the UK it had been offered as the Transit Courier Kombi with less luxurious seats.


Other similar small MPVs include Ford's own B-MAX plus the Citroen Nemo Multispace and Peugeot Bipper Tepee.
