2011 Ford Transit Connect XLT Premium Wagon

As usual with the Transit Connect, I'm struck by the good steering; the surprisingly robust powertrain; and most especially, the superb front visibility afforded by the low cowl, the huge windshield, and the big side glass. Add in good sideview mirrors and a rearview camera that projects onto the inside rearview mirror, plus the fact that this wagon version has a full greenhouse, and you have an unusually shaped vehicle that's actually quite easy to maneuver, even though it will not fit above the third floor of our parking garage because of its 79.3-inch height. I'm not sure who would use this as a personal-use vehicle, but it's interesting nonetheless and drives surprisingly well for a big tall box.
