Best bits

  • Easy to drive
  • Car-like handling
  • Practical and spacious interior

Not so great

  • 1.0 EcoBoost is lethargic with a full load
  • Twin-sliding doors feel flimsy
  • Interior quality could be better.

Overall verdict on the Ford Transit Courier

"Compact, practical and affordable to run, the Ford Transit Courier is proof that you don't need to lower your expectations when it comes to buying a small and capable van."

Ford Transit Courier 2019

Based on the same platform as the Fiesta, the Transit Courier sits below the Transit Connect in the Ford van range and competes with the likes of the Fiat Fiorino, the Citroen Nemo and the compact version of the Mercedes-Benz Citan.


The Transit Courier may be the smallest van in the Ford line-up but it's still capable of carrying a standard Euro pallet and has the longest load length in the class at 1.62 metres. The total cargo volume is 2.3 cubic metres and it comes with a sliding side door and a full height bulkhead that's available glazed.


If you need to carry longer items there's the option of a clever folding mesh bulkhead and drop down passenger seat that will boost the overall load area to 2.6 cubic metres.


The load area comes with six cargo tie-down points with four side-mounted panels plus there's the option of ultra-bright LED lighting. The maximum payload at launch is 660kg, but this was downgraded to 590kg for modes sold from 2018. One sliding side door is fitted as standard with the option of dual sliding doors. There's also a Kombi version which has a row of three seats in the back and glazed side doors.


At launch, the Transit Courier had two diesel engines in the range – a 1.5-litre TDCi with 75PS and a 1.6 TDCi producing 95PS – plus Ford's impressive 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit that's used in various Ford's like the Fiesta and B-MAX. In 2018 the 1.6 turbodiesel was replaced with the 1.5-litre TDCi, with outputs split between 75 and 100PS.  


The interior echoes Ford's passenger cars with a modern design. There's also plenty of stowage including a 'mega-centre' console which can hold A4 documents and small laptops, overhead stowage plus a drawer under the driver’s seat. A device dock in the centre of the instrument panel lets drivers store, mount and charge mobile phones.
