The Ford Transit Custom has innovative new features that make life easier than a week on the beach.
The Ford Transit Custom has innovative new features that make life easier than a week on the beach. It has a hinged hatch in the bulkhead, for starters, measuring 596mm by 205mm. This is positioned at the base of the bulkhead to allow lengthy items in the rear to extend into a load space underneath the passenger seats. That sounds perfect for trips to the seaside, where motorists need extra long spades to build giant sandcastles. The bulkhead hatch complements ingenious roof rack bars that can be folded flat when not required. This reduces fuel consumption, possibly saving motorists enough cash to buy ice cream at the beach. That - as everyone knows - costs more than a coastal defence system.The all-new Ford Transit Custom has locking check arms too. These secure the rear cargo doors in position at ninety degrees to ensure they cannot be blown around by passing vehicles or wind. Just as well, the coast is breezy. These complement the tie-down hooks and fixing points which are located on the body sides, rather than the floor. This leaves the base of the van clear of intrusions and recesses that might otherwise reduce the usable storage area and make cleaning tricky. Speaking of which... the van has a liner tailored to the shape of its floor that extends up to 80mm around the sides of the load area. This protects the Transit Custom, and makes it easier to clean. Bright LED lighting completes the package - so beach lovers can clearly see where they are storing their buckets and spades.
