Ford scoops two ACFO awards

The three vehicles topped their respective classes in the annual ACFO (Association of Car Fleet Operators) Fleet Car and Van of the Year Awards. The Transit Connect and the Transit each retain their awards from last year. It is the tenth year in succession that the Transit has won the ACFO Fleet Panel Van of the Year Award.

ACFO chairman Tony Leigh said: ‘Our members are continually evaluating vehicles and use their expertise to assess cars and vans against a wide range of real-life criteria including wholelife costs, operational performance, suitability for the task and fleet and driver appeal. The whole support package from the manufacturers and their dealers are also very important factors.

‘The Transit has always been Britain’s most popular van and that position is not under threat, while the Transit Connect has already found a niche for itself with fleets and retains its Fleet Light Van of the Year Award, having only been on sale for just over two years.’
