The Titanium trim on our van also meant leather seats for everyone and separate air con front and rear, giving it the more upmarket “executive shuttle” feel Ford is aiming for. The latest version of the Tourneo commits to its high-end features an eight-inch touchscreen with Sync3, DAB and smarthphone integration. It also packs in driver assistance features including traffic sign recognition, blind spot warning, pre-collision assist, adaptive cruise control and pre-collision assist and is the first in its segment to offer intelligent speed limiting.
Powering this beast is a 2.0-litre diesel with 168bhp and 299b/ft, which makes a good fist of hauling the Tourneo and a tonne of passengers/luggage up the road. Ford quotes figures of 43.5mpg and 168g/km.
