Ford Connect Infront

Travel Up front with no loss of seating or boot space!

You may have noticed that all other travel up front conversions on the market involve access through the rear or through the rear side passenger door meaning a loss of either passenger accommodation and/or boot space. The stylish Ford Tourneo Connect offers powerful performance and exceptional efficiency with the capacity to take the whole family!

Building on the knowledge obtained since 2010 when we launched our hugely successful Fiat Doblo InFront, our Tourneo Connect InFront allows the wheelchair user access via the passenger door, meaning that the wheelchair user can sit up front and feel part of the family without compromising the rest of the vehicle. Our flagship Ford Connect conversion is available with the choice of diesel/petrol engines and a 6 speed manual or 8 speed automatic transmission, so now there’s an InFront conversion to suit everyone!

ENGINE AND DRIVE

1.0 Petrol (only available in Titanium spec), 6 speed manual gearbox
1.5 Diesel (100ps), 5 speed manual gearbox
1.5 Diesel (120ps), 6 speed manual gearbox or automatic

SEATING CAPACITY

Standard 5 – Driver, wheelchair user and 3 rear passengers.

Introduction

There’s nothing else like it anywhere: we exclusively bring you a roomy, good-looking accessible vehicle where the wheelchair-user can – finally – both get into, and sit in, the front of the car. Let’s face it – the time to be arguing over who gets to sit in the front should end when we grow up and get our own car! All of this can be offered in this premium conversion based upon the Ford Tourneo Connect with flexibility offered in manual/diesel engines and manual or automatic transmission.

The few other up-front vehicles on the market are accessed from the rear or side door, which means losing or limiting your rear seats and boot space (seriously restricting how you can use your new car). But there’s just no compromise with the InFront Connect!

Now you can enjoy all the features you choose for your fantastic new car — like adjusting the radio and the air-con/heater to your tastes. You get an unrestricted view ahead and being next to the driver means no more shouting! Choose the Titanium model and a huge panoramic roof comes as standard, along with a whole load of other luxury features.

Thanks to this unique patented conversion, no longer do you have the rear-seater’s hassle of having to unload and reload all your luggage (twice) every time you make a comfort stop. And anyone helping you into the car no longer has to squat-shuffle their way through the vehicle interior to reach the front.

We’d love to tell you more about how brilliant it all is — here are just a few examples:

  • Standard access time is under 1 minute
  • Automatic wheelchair platform
  • Loads of room for family & pets
  • Side conversion permits a tow-bar (for a trailer or caravan)
  • Ideal for both manual & powered wheelchairs
  • Fits right into a standard disabled parking space
  • Fits against most kerbs
  • Ramp fits under the wheelchair platform
  • Suspension system retained exactly as Ford designed it
  • Choose manual or automatic, petrol or diesel
  • Doesn’t look visibly converted
  • Away from the rear axle makes the wheelchair position much more comfortable.

All available in either a 1.0 Turbo Petrol or 1.5 Diesel engine.

Conversion features

This short-wheelbase MPV takes our low-floor conversion brilliantly. The under-floor ramp, swivelling floor and relocated b-post make access not only a dream but fast.

The ramp has a bridging plate to smooth any bumps using a manual chair may create, and stows neatly under the wheelchair platform. Longer wheelchairs are easily accommodated thanks to a cut-away glove compartment.

Wheelchair safety is provided by front electro-reels and there are also self-tightening rear restraints. And of course there’s the original Ford adjustable seatbelt for the wheelchair user.

Internal height 1485mm

Platform width 685mm
