If you need a vehicle with a lot of storage space for lugging around cargo and supplies, then a pick-up truck or SUV is often a great choice. But, these vehicles do not double as family vehicles with pick-up trucks lacking additional seats and SUV’s having more safety problems over other car models. Alongside that, although very useful in a carrying capacity, many consumers think these vehicles large frames and styles look unattractive compared to more fashionable designs.
Minivans on the other hand are great vehicles for transporting a big family, but with so many seats taking up space, there is often nowhere to pack anything else despite the vehicle’s large size.
You’ll find a happy medium between the two, with plenty of seats, plenty of storage space, a friendly and stylish look, and abundant safety features, in the 2017 Ford Transit Connect Wagon at Ford Kovatch.
