The Ford Tourneo is a small minibus (8-9 seats) entirely based on the Ford Transit van (not to be confused with the full size Ford Transit minibus). The Transit is a commercial vehicle made especially for the use of transporting goods. The Tourneo, however, is a family minibus so has back seats and windows, and can be specified with car like interior trim such as full carpeting, leather seat trim, and a higher level of equipment than a standard Transit. The Tourneo is also considered an executive transport vehicle, being one of the more spacious vehicles of its class, which also includes the Mercedes-Benz Viano and the Volkswagen Caravelle. The Ford Tourneo was introduced in the 1995 and has had good sales. Both the Tourneo and Transit run in parallel, so when a new Transit model is introduced, the Tourneo similarly updated. A smaller, minivan version of the Tourneo, called the Ford Tourneo Connect, was introduced in 2002, based on the Ford Transit Connect.
