Top 10 Affordable Practical Cars : 2011 Ford Transit Connect

2011 Ford Transit Connect

It used to be that if you wanted to drive a cargo van around as your main transportation, you'd have to be a workaholic or a weirdo.  Then Ford unleashed the economical and practical Transit Connect onto America's shores. 



 This quirky, European-styled van is the perfect fit for the small business owner or project obsessed DIYer.  It's packed with 180ยบ opening rear doors, a 6' x 4' cargo floor, and 59" cargo height.  The Transit Connect XL has basic amenities like air conditioning, tilt/telescoping steering, and a stereo with auxiliary input, but you have to step up to the XLT for a second-row bench seat.  You won't want to be carrying too many passengers to stress out the 138-hp, 2.0-liter engine, though. It may be worth the vehicular obscurity to enjoy the massive flexibility, frugal fuel economy and nimble handling (39' turning radius) of the Transit Connect.

Maximum Cargo Space (cu. ft.): 135

Passenger Volume (cu. ft.): 65

Fuel Economy (city/hwy): 21/26

MSRP: $21,200
