I am 6' 5" tall. My Ford Transit Connect XLT wagon is the only car which does not require any ducking on my part to enter or exit. I have headroom to spare and I love the Imax front windshield. The fuel economy is acceptable with an average of 22.9 MPG in real world combined driving. The storage space is outstanding. Ford offers and optional large soft side storage bin set-up with a built in insulated cooler. It helps keep everyday trunk items in place and prevents them from rolling around in the back. The stock speakers are pure junk! They are not worthy of the radio. I dumped mine in the first week for a pair of 3 way's. I have also built a pair of tail door mounts for a pair of 5 way 6"x9" speakers. My mounts are made from 1" plywood. The wood was covered in blue vinyl which matches the color of my wagon. The stock XLT noise level was high. To solve this, I applied Dynamat to the inside of the front doors, the rear doors and the back doors. This helped out with the exterior nose levels as well as improving speaker performance. I also applied Dynamat to the back of the glove compartment and to the HVAC tubes to cut down on the HVAC noise. When I had the ceiling pads off to install the rear speaker wires, I Dynamatted the inside of the roof too. The payoff is when it rains I no longer hear the beat of each raindrop on the roof. My wagon is now limo quiet. The XLT wagon comes with REAR fog lights only. These are almost unheard of in the USA. I can say that they do work well in a heavy rain or fog situation. I did stand out in the storm. Ford has front facing fog lights on the European Transit Connects, but the North American version just has some stupid plastic inserts where the fog lights should go. I have installed a pair of Hela fog lamps under the front bumper. At the same time I am investigating exactly what type of fog light will fit in the Ford holes with a minimum of work and a maximum of good looks.
