Ford has updated its Tourneo Custom people mover in South Africa. Herewith specification and pricing details…
Now featuring revised exterior and interior styling, the facelifted Ford Tourneo Custom is now available in South Africa.
"With the new Tourneo Custom, every passenger can enjoy the best seat in the house," said Doreen Mashinini, General Manager, Marketing at FMCSA. "This versatile people mover has been refreshed with attractive new exterior styling and an interior that combines the comfort and quality of a luxury car with outstanding space and practicality."
The Tourneo Custom offers flexible seating arrangements depending on what you need.
The front-end now sports a 5-bar, trapezoidal chrome grille that’s in line with Ford’s passenger car design language. The automatic headlight units are slimmer and all derivatives feature signature daytime running lights and front fog lights.
The interior has been extensively revised with the use of higher quality materials seen on the headliner, seats, side panels and carpets. The seat designs have been updated to offer better support while sound reduction has improved in the rear cabin. The air conditioning system has also been updated. Up to 6 passengers can be seated in the rear. The seats themselves can be folded flat, tumbled, stowed or even removed, depending on the requirement.
A 6-speaker sound system is standard across the range, offering Bluetooth, Aux input and mounted steering wheel controls.
Standard driver assistance features include Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Hill Launch Assist (HLA), Load Adaptive Control (LAC), Roll-Over Mitigation (ROM) and Trailer Sway Control (TSC), the latter of which is activated when you fit an approved tow bar at a Ford dealer.
Other safety features include 6 airbags and ISOFIX child seat mounts found on the second row of seats.
The Tourneo Custom is powered by a range of 2.2-litre turbodiesel engines in various states of tune including a 74 kW/310 Nm version for the entry-level Ambiente derivative and a more powerful 92 kW/350 Nm engine for the Trend derivative. Both derivatives make use of a 6-speed manual transmission and both are in long wheelbase format.
The Tourneo Custom is rated to carry a gross payload of 915 kg and it can tow an unbraked trailer weighing 750 kg or a braked trailer weighing 1 400 kg.
