The all-new Ford Tourneo raises the bar in the multi-activity vehicle segment, featuring a new platform engineered for maximum versatility and comfort. It is designed to enhance the ownership experience for both personal use and business customers, offering spacious accommodation for up to eight occupants.

Initially available in Trend specification and a long-wheelbase configuration, it is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.0L Single Turbo diesel engine with AdBlue, in combination with a new smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. Additional models will join the Tourneo line-up later this year.

“Whether it’s an active family trip at the weekend or shuttling executives to the airport in style, comfort and refinement, Tourneo’s advanced connectivity, cutting-edge design and new luxury features make it the compelling choice in the multi-activity vehicle segment,” says Doreen Mashinini, General Manager for Marketing at Ford South Africa.

Designed for space and comfort – with flexible seating and luxury features.

The all-new Tourneo has been developed to offer occupants significantly enhanced levels of comfort and convenience, while the stylish new interior features superior craftsmanship and material quality.

For maximum comfort on the move, the Tourneo’s cabin offers high-end features such as tri-zone electronic climate control and heated driver and front passenger seats.

The Tourneo’s enhanced feature content is combined with a significant improvement in capability and performance. The vehicle’s all-new architecture delivers a lower floor height and a new integrated sidestep to make ingress and loading easier, supported by a large aperture for the sliding side doors.

The optimised platform has also enabled a reduced overall height of under two metres, which enables access to garages and multi-storey car parks that are often inaccessible to vehicles in the Tourneo segment, as well as contributing to optimised efficiency and refinement through improved aerodynamics.

Innovative design – inside and out

The all-new Tourneo makes a clear statement on the road, with an expressive and sculptural design to appeal to private customers and high-end businesses alike. With a confident stance, the vehicle has increased visual width front and rear, for a planted and stable appearance.

A column-mounted shifter for vehicles with an automatic transmission frees up more knee and leg space as well as making ingress and egress easier. Further front cabin space and increased instrument panel storage is created by the roof-mounted front passenger airbag. This enables customers to keep laptop or A4 folder-sized items in the covered dashboard storage and means portable electronic devices can now be safely fitted closer to the driver with industry-standard AMPS mountings.

Efficient performance

The Tourneo Trend is powered by Ford’s efficient and economical 2.0-litre Single Turbo (SiT) EcoBlue diesel engine that uses AdBlue diesel exhaust fluid to transform nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water, significantly reducing the impact of its exhaust emissions. A 20-litre AdBlue tank is standard. Additionally, it incorporates Auto Stop/Start to further reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

The 2.0L SiT diesel engine delivers 100kW of power at 3 500 r/min, matched to 360Nm of torque between 1 750 and 2 500 r/min. It is exclusively available with an advanced new eight-speed automatic transmission that provides seamless power delivery to the front wheels, whether commuting in the city or heading off to a far-flung holiday or family adventure destination.

The performance of the powertrain can be optimised using the Selectable Drive Modes, including Eco and Tow/Haul, to suit different operating requirements and driving conditions. All powertrain variants offer highly competitive towing capability, including a braked trailer weight of up to 2 500kg.

 A total of six airbags are provided, comprising dual front, side and curtain airbags. In terms of vehicle security, shielded power door deadlocks are fitted, along with a two-step door unlocking system as part of the keyless entry and push-button start. A Thatcham Category 1-specification alarm and immobiliser system is available as an option.

Connected features.

The Tourneo is equipped with a 5G FordPass Connect modem, allowing owners to remotely lock or unlock the doors, remotely start the vehicle to cool or heat the cabin, and get vehicle-specific health alerts – all via the FordPass app. The modem also enables wireless Ford Power-Up software updates to improve Tourneo’s features and capabilities without requiring a trip to the dealership.
