Ford Transit Connect
Starting Price: $22,330
It’s not quite a minivan — in fact Ford refers to it as the “un-minivan” — but the Transit Connect offers the versatility of a minivan in a much smaller package. With seating for up to seven in the long wheelbase version (five in the standard wheelbase), and with its tall roof design, Transit Connect offers great space for people and cargo. Dual sliding doors make entry and exit easy, and in back buyers have the option of either a standard liftgate or side-hinged swing-out doors. Transit Connect’s small size makes it a unique family hauler that’s easier to drive and maneuver while still feeling spacious inside.
