The vehicle exhibits a confident stance with a solid and balanced footing on the ground with its widened appearance at the front and rear. The dynamic and stylish front design reflects the strong competencies that form the basis of the Tourneo brand, while emphasizing the technology and performance of the fully electric E-Tourneo Custom with its unique grille finish, full-width visual signature and striking LED headlights.
The design, which offers practicality as well as sophistication, continues inside the vehicle. Stylish front cabin with two or three seats; It represents a new step forward in technology and comfort with its high-quality materials and simple, contemporary surfaces. The instrument cluster features an ergonomic 13-inch touchscreen display and the SYNC 4 infotainment system.8 The new digital display creates an intuitive, driver-oriented cockpit, while wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are standard.
Tourneo vehicles also need to function as mobile seating and workspaces to support users' active lives. The Tourneo Custom is also available with the same innovative tilt-adjustable steering wheel introduced in the newly launched E Transit Custom. Thanks to this class-specific feature, the steering wheel can be used as an ergonomic work area for laptops and tablets, or it can be fully folded and turned into a useful table.
One of the priorities in the design process was to maximize comfort and ease of movement in the cabin. Accordingly, all vehicles have a flat-bottom steering wheel. This rounded square shape and gear lever positioned on the steering column in automatic transmission vehicles creates more space and facilitates access. In addition, by positioning the front passenger airbag on the ceiling instead of the instrument panel, more space and storage compartments were created in the front cabin. In this way, laptops or A4 file size items can be stored in the closed storage compartment on the console. Electronic devices can now be safely placed closer to the driver with industry standard AMPS mounts.
