The 2014 Van of the Year award has been given to the Ford Transit Connect during the Moscow Motor Show.
The Ford Transit Connect shares the podium alongside the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Renault Kangoo.
Its the first time a manufacturer won this honor for two consecutive years. The Ford Transit Custom had seized the coveted trophy last year as well which is awarded by a panel of twenty four journlaists. This represents a fifth title for Ford Europe.
