At Swiss Vans here in South Wales, we now have available the fantastically stylish Ford Transit Custom Sport. The Transit Custom is one of the most popular range of vans on the road in the UK, and with the Custom Sport’s recent facelift and new front bumper, it’s a super option for anyone wanting a van that’s both reliable and great-looking.
Why Buy the Ford Transit Custom Sport?
Eminently practical for work or business but also at home in your everyday life or on week-end adventures, the Transit Custom Sport features a big stripe down the sides, double bonnet stripes, alloy wheels, and a part-leather interior. The Sport’s edgy look works perfectly whether you need a Ford Transit Custom panel van or the Ford Transit Custom DCiV, so whatever your requirements, this could be the trendy Transit for you.
And just to refresh your memory, the panel van gives you at least 6.8m3 of volume to carry your precious cargo, and the DCiV (also known as the Ford Transit Custom Double Cab) gives a still-generous 4.4m3 of cargo capacity plus seating for up to six people. People or stuff or people and stuff, the Transit Custom Sport gets you moving and heads turning.
On the mechanical side, the Sport comes equipped with Ford’s 185hp 2.0-litre TDCi EcoBlue turbodiesel engine. You can choose your transmission with both a manual and an automatic option available. As for what amazing extras you get with the Transit Custom Sport, there’s a list!
The basic Sport includes:
17” or 18” alloy wheels depending on the van
Partial leather seats / interior
Sport styling kit (inc. sport stripes and bumper skirts)
Rear-view (reversing) camera featuring Trailer Hitch Assist
DAB radio with Bluetooth and 2 USB ports
Heated front seats
Lane-Keeping Alert with Ford’s Driver Alert
8” colour touchscreen infotainment system featuring Ford’s SYNC 3 system
If that’s not quite enough for you and you can spend a little more, we also offer some amazing upgrades.
20” Swiss Vans alloys from only £14 per month over five years
A full leather upgrade for the interior (that said, the part-leather looks pretty good)
Plylining / plastic lining
Towbar from £399 – £699
Sortimo racking from £999
Supaguard from £399 or ceramic paint correction & protection from £899
We love the Transit Custom Sport as it’s so versatile. Who wants a boring work van anyway! There are few things to bear in mind though, and as we want to make sure that you get the best van for you, we’ll just mention those here. We’re not trying to put you off, obviously, but we’re happiest when our customers are happy too.
Things to Consider
The DCiV (Double Can in Van, in case you were wondering) model of the Transit Custom Sport has a low payload — less than 1000kg — so you can’t reclaim the VAT on this one. If that’s an issue for you, have a look at our Transit Custom WASP ICE and Hornet models. These offer a great compromise; they’re still sporty and super-cool, but might be a little more practical for some people. They’re also a little cheaper. The Transit Custom Sport can be pricey, we’ll be honest! The WASP ICE and Hornet vans are a great way to get what you want looks-wise without getting a price tag that scares you.
You could also consider the Volkswagen Transporter T6 kombi especially if you need the DCiV’s passenger-carrying capacity but you also need the extra payload and VAT refund. The Mercedes Vito Sport is another option. If it’s the overall size that doesn’t quite work for you, you could check out the L3H2 Transit for a large Ford van or the Transit Connect for something a little smaller.
