With its light and spacious fully-trimmed interior, Transit Minibus has been designed to make even the longest journey a pleasure. New overhead storage shelves offer convenient stowage. Additional comfort is provided by optional rear air conditioning with aircraft-style vents and individual LED reading lights for each rear seat (Standard on Trend, option on Base). Model shown is a Ford Transit Minibus 17 seat L4 H3 Trend.
Note Transit Minibus H3 (high roof) cannot be fitted with a roof rack.
Rear air conditioning
For a more comfortable travel experience, a separate air conditioning system is available for the rear passenger compartment, featuring its own rotary controls. (Standard on Trend, option on Base) Each row of seats is provided with two foot-level outlets for heating, with overhead air conditioning vents available for efficient air circulation (included with overhead storage shelves).
Built with safety in mind
Safety is important to us, so the Transit Minibus does all that it can to help protect you, your passengers and those around you.
Designed to warn you if the system detects driving behaviour that indicates a drop in alertness levels. Initially, a warning icon is displayed in the instrument cluster, followed by a warning chime if driving alertness further declines. (Standard)
Innovative SYNC feature that uses a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to help vehicle occupants initiate a direct call to the local Communications Centre (in more than 40 European countries and regions), following a vehicle crash event involving an airbag deployment or fuel pump shut off. (Option, part of Ford SYNC)
Lane Keeping Alert
It only takes a momentary slip in concentration to drift out of your lane when driving on the motorway. Lane Keeping Alert is designed to recognise when you approach the road markings without using the indicator, and alerts you with vibrations through the steering wheel. (Standard)
Electronic Stability Control
ESC is designed to help you maintain control in extreme driving conditions. It senses when you are deviating from your chosen line and aims to keep you on track by automatically regulating braking and engine output. (Standard)

Second row seats incorporate ISOFIX child seat fixing points with top tether mounts for extra safety. (Standard)

Weights, loads and performance
The fuel economy figures quoted in the table below are achieved by following strict EU governed test procedures and are specifically designed to enable customers to compare vehicles from all manufacturers on a like-for-like basis. Fuel consumption is directly affected by the length of the journey; number of passengers and amount of luggage carried; individual driving style; road and traffic conditions; weather conditions; vehicle age, mileage, condition and standard of maintenance; use of vehicle features such as air conditioning; and any modifications to the vehicle such as the addition of a roof rack. Your fuel economy will vary based on these and other factors and, for these reasons, many drivers may not achieve the EU fuel economy figures (below) in day-to-day driving, although the vehicle is technically capable of doing so.
