Ford Transit Connect - 14,904 registered

Ford is the only CV manufacturer to have three entries in the top 10 selling vans of 2015. Its final entry - in seventh place - is the Transit Connect. The mk2 Connect is hugely popular with builders and its car-like handing makes it one of the best handling vans in its class.  

The Transit Connect is offered with the choice of petrol or diesel powertrains, with the latter returning up to 70mpg when ordered with the Econetic diesel. Maximum payload varies from 625kg to 1000kg, which means even the smallest Transit Connect can carry 25 standard bags of cement before it's overloaded.
