Although the 2014 Ford Transit Connect has sliding side doors and room for up to seven people (or 130.7-cubic-feet of cargo in 2-seat form), it's hard to put it in the same category as traditional minivans. It's on a version of the platform that underpins the Focus and Escape, which gives the van a much sportier attitude than the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey or Chrysler Town & Country. The Transit Connect is minivan-size, yet feels small and fun, and handling is surprisingly good. It comes with a choice of two wheelbases, two engines, and is offered as a Wagon (for people) or Van (for cargo). The Wagon lacks some of the creature comforts minivans offer, but it's loaded with value.
