There are a few competitors out there, including popular alternatives in the form of the Citroën Nemo and Peugeot Bipper.
Despite its size, it offers decent a decent cargo area, amongst some other nice positives which are listed below.
- Good to drive
- Decent economy

Economy, Towing, and Performance
Having been around since 2014, the Ford Transit Courier came with either a 1.5 or 1.6-litre diesel engine, or a 1.0-litre EcoBoost 3-cylinder petrol engine.
In 2018, a more powerful 1.5-litre diesel replaced the 1.6-litre unit. If you opt for a diesel, you'll see around 70mpg, whilst the petrol will return around 54mpg.
As for towing capabilities and performance, diesel models can tow 560kg max, whist petrol models can tow 650kg unbraked, and 850kg braked.
Performance is rather car-like, which is good news. The diesel is by no means rapid, but it will be fine for what it's designed to do, whilst the petrol feels a bit nippier.
Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity
Unlike its larger siblings, which come in varying bodystyles, the Transit Courier comes solely in a panel van bodystyle, with some versions featuring a sliding side door.
The different trims, which are worth looking out for are the Sport trim, which gives the Transit Courier a leaner look, or Limited versions that come with more standard kit.
Maximum payload for the Transit Courier is 660kg for pre-2018 versions, falling to between 519 and 595kg for later models.
As for capacity, the Transit Courier has a max load length of 1,620mm, max load height of 1,244mm and max load width of 1,488mm.
Interior, Technology, and Safety
The interior on the Ford Transit Courier is simple and clean, especially on pre-2018 models. Later models got a general overhaul which added in a digital infotainment screen and refreshed, crisper dials.
Standard equipment from 2020 onward models includes basic tech a van driver could need including DAB radio and Bluetooth. It's worth noting a side door comes on the Trend trim level and above.
The Trend is also where you will find the updated 4.0-inch infotainment screen, Limited trim gets a 6.0-inch touchscreen, and rear parking sensors.
As for safety, kit within the range includes Electronic stability control, Hill-start assist and multiple airbags. It's worth noting an alarm does not come as standard on any model, which some may find a little disappointing.
Is the Ford Transit Courier right for me?
With the Ford Transit Courier, the clue is in the name. This is an ideal van for couriers and the like.
It's small enough not to stand out, but still offers a fantastic load space, which is much more spacious than any car-based vans, such as its Ford Fiesta Van sibling.
The Citroën Nemo and Peugeot Bipper are worth a look if you're considering this size of van, but with Transit DNA, the Transit Courier is a strong standout in this class.
