Ford Transit MWB Review 2024

The new Ford Transit MWB isn't just a facelift; it's a genuine leap forward. It's more refined, more comfortable, and packed with technology that makes life on the road easier. Yes, there are rivals that come close, but the Transit's blend of practicality, power, and now, surprising polish keeps it firmly in the driver's seat.

Rivals to the Ford Transit MWB include the Ford Transit Custom and Peugeot Boxer.

Our Ford Transit MWB review covers:

Ford Transit MWB Key Features

  • Handsome exterior with a bolder grille and sharper headlights flanking a muscular bonnet
  • Spacious and well-designed interior with soft-touch materials
  • Offers a generous 10.3 cubic metres of cargo space
  • Punchy 2.0L EcoBoost engine

Ford Transit MWB Pros and Cons:


  • Spacious and Practical
  • Improved Refinement
  • Modernized Cabin


  • Cost Considerations
  • Don't expect nimble cornering or lightning-fast acceleration
  • Manoeuvring in tight spaces or city streets can be a challenge

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The MWB cuts a more dynamic figure, with a bolder grille and sharper headlights flanking a muscular bonnet. It's still undeniably utilitarian, but there's a newfound sense of presence, like a workhorse that's hit the gym. The lines are cleaner, the stance feels more confident, and it wouldn't look out of place parked up outside a trendy city development.

The cabin's been upgraded with soft-touch materials and a streamlined layout, making it feel less like a workshop and more like a mobile office. The SYNC 4 infotainment system, accessed through a sizeable touchscreen, keeps you connected and entertained on the go.

With a cavernous 10.3 cubic metres of load space, the MWB swallows up cargo like a black hole after a buffet. The load bay's well-lit and accessible, with tie-down points to keep your precious packages from waltzing around like tipsy sailors. A lowered floor option is available, too, making life easier for those who don't fancy Olympic-level weightlifting every time they need to load up. Need to customise? No problem. A multitude of upfit options let you tailor the MWB to your specific needs, from bespoke shelving to full-blown mobile workshops.

Interior and Trims

The MWB comes loaded with driver assistance features like lane-keep assist and blind-spot monitoring, giving you extra peace of mind on the road. And if the weather takes a turn for the worse, features like traction control and electronic stability control help you keep things under control, even when the rain turns roads into rivers.

So, while the MWB might not leave supercars in the dust, it offers a well-balanced blend of power, performance, and safety that's perfect for the real world. It's a workhorse that's more than capable of handling whatever your job throws at it, and it does it all with a surprising level of refinement and confidence.

If you're looking for a van that's as practical as it is capable, the Ford Transit MWB is definitely worth a look at.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, you'll find a punchy 2.0L EcoBoost engine. It might not knock your socks off with acceleration, but its frugal fuel consumption will keep your accountant happy. The EcoBoost packs a punch, making hauling heavier loads or tackling motorway miles a breeze.

The MWB boasts refined handling compared to its predecessors. Steering feels lighter and more responsive, making city manoeuvres and tight country roads less of a white-knuckle experience. The ride quality has also been upgraded, with suspension that smoothes out bumps and potholes like a magic carpet. This isn't a ballerina on the dance floor, mind you, but it's certainly a significant improvement over the jouncing cargo ships of yore.

Whatever engine you choose, the Berlingo is a quiet and comfortable drive. Like its siblings the Peugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo Cargo, it;s handling is sharp and entertaining, while the suspension deals with bumps and cracks in the road well, even with an empty load.
