Ford Transit Connect

Starting MSRP: about $21,000

While it's been available in Europe since 2003, the Ford Transit Connect arrived in the U.S. just last year. This small van comes in both passenger and cargo versions, so it can be used by families as well as small businesses that need the cargo space for storage, but don't need a full-size cargo van.

The Transit Connect is powered by a 136-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a four-speed, automatic transmission. While it's shorter than other full-size minivans such as the Honda Odyssey, it's almost one foot taller. That advantage gives it some unique storage capability, such as a large storage shelf above the windshield as well as substantial headroom for up to five occupants.
