Ford has decided to redesign the vehicle completely and make it look contemporary and elegant. The exteriors are very different from the 2010 model that looks like a minivan but Ford has decided not make this car look like a minivan.

On the front, the hexagonal design combined with black front grille offers a distinctive look to the vehicle compared to the earlier model. It also offers panoramic roof, rear view camera and different color options to the buyers which is something that Ford never provided in the earlier models.

When it comes to interiors, Transit Connect Wagon offers better space and it can accommodate seven passengers comfortably. The seating surfaces and dashboard is in leather which offer premium feel to the interiors.
