Comfort & Convenience

Operating a large passenger vehicle comes with a unique set of needs and responsibilities. So the Transit Minibus is specially designed to fulfil this specific task. It incorporates many innovative, ingenious and thoughtful features, all there to maximise the comfort, convenience and safety of everyone on-board.

Features shown on this page may only be available on selected models. Where available, these features may be optional extras at additional cost. For more info, download price list to view current UK specifications.

Auto-headlights

Headlights that turn on automatically when needed

Automatic headlights use a sensor that detects failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. This triggers the automatic headlights to turn themselves on, which can make driving both easier and safer.

Electrically-operated driver’s seat

An ergonomically designed driver’s seat includes optional armrest and lumbar support. It’s also heated and is 10-way electrically adjustable. So it’s easy to find your ideal driving position, or change it for different drivers.

An advanced system to help you stay in lane

If it detects that you’re accidentally drifting out of lane, Lane-Keeping Alert can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning.

Rear air conditioning

Air conditioning for rear passengers

An optional separate air conditioning system is available for the rear passenger compartment. The system has its own rotary controls and two, foot-level outlets are also provided for each row of seats.

Lights that give you better nighttime visibility

If you’re indicating and turning into a road or pulling into a parking space, a light within the headlamp, on the turning side, automatically illuminates the side of the road to give you enhanced visibility through the turn.
