Transit Connect- 15,494 registrations

The third Ford to break into the top 10 best-selling vans of 2016 is the Transit Connect. Favoured by builders and plumbers alike, Ford’s compact panel van is cheap to run and versatile, with Trend models getting a through-load hatch that allows it to carry planks and pipes up to 3.4 metres in length. The 1.5 Econetic diesel will return an official 70.6mpg too, while emissions are just 99g/km of CO2.
