The new Brotherwood® 'Carete' Wheelchair Accessible Ford Tourneo Connect offers car-like refinement within a compact package, whilst maintaining a cavernous interior.  Brotherwood offer the only Ford Tourneo Connect WAV conversion with up to 59 inches of headroom for wheelchair users and a low, flat and completely level floor.

Car-style torsion-beam rear suspension means the Brotherwood Carete rides smoothly over the roughest roads and provides excellent comfort for up to five, including driver and one wheelchair user, seated inclusively between the rear passengers.

Luxury features of this Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle include DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity with voice control, powered front and rear windows and air conditioning or climate control, with the Titanium model boasting a panoramic sunroof over the wheelchair passenger for a light, airy cabin with excellent visibility.

Conversion Features

Level Floor

Low, Flat, Level Floor

A sloping floor, sitting too high or far back in the vehicle can not only be isolating, but also an uncomfortable ride for the wheelchair user. The low, level floor of a Brotherwood® conversion offers a stable, comfortable, natural seating position, for better visibility, inclusion and ride quality.

Brotherwood headroom

Spacious Headroom

Our lowered floor allows a huge headroom inside the Tourneo Connect. As a result the wheelchair user enjoys excellent visibility out of the large windows and optional Panorama Roof.

Brotherwood Seat

Sculptured Seat Profile

Our unique seats enable wheelchair users to travel inclusively next to the rear passengers, making conversation easy and closer to the driver for a smoother ride. The seats are trim matched to the original seats for a flawless factory finish.

Storq System

STORQ System

STORQ automatically applies extra tension to the wheelchair restraints – ideal for those with limited grip or dexterity who might struggle with traditional buckles. By ensuring the rear restraints are properly tensioned, the wheelchair user enjoys a safer, more stable ride.

Storq System

Hook-i PAWRS

The Hook-i PAWRS is a remote-controlled, powered front restraint system, to assist loading a wheelchair and passenger. No pushing required, simply attach the restraints and press the remote control for effortless loading of combined wheelchair and passenger weights up to 250kg. Once inside there is no need to attach additional front restraints, making the whole process fast and easy. 

Standard on Titanium.

Brotherwood counterbalanced ramp

Counterbalanced Ramp

Our custom-built, lightweight ramp is counterbalanced, so that it can be lifted with minimal effort by foot or hand. The angle is shallow to enable easy loading , while long life fittings ensure minimal maintenance and reliable performance for years to come. Finished with a high-traction surface that makes access easy for manual or power chairs.

Comfort & Convenience

Panorama Roof

Panorama Roof

A one-piece panorama roof floods the interior with natural light, creating an extra feeling of space. The roof’s solar reflect glass shields you from the heat of the sun and a power operated sun blind lets you control exactly of the amount of light you let in.

Standard on Titanium.

Auto Headlights

Automatic Headlights

The auto-headlights contain sensors that detect failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. For example, if you enter a tunnel. This triggers the auto-headlights to turn them-selves on, which can make driving both easier and safer. Auto-headlights are available as an option with rain-sensing wipers.

Standard on Titanium.

Parking Sensors

Parking Sensors

Optional Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your car and obstacles, both in front and behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.

Front parking sensors: option; Rear parking sensors standard on Titanium

Quickclear Windscreen

Quickclear Windscreen

This feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and ultra-thin filaments can superheat to de-ice, de-fog and de-mist your windscreen as well as help de-freeze the wipers. The system works in seconds, even if it’s below zero outside.

Standard on Zetec and Titanium.

Temperature Control

Temperature Control

With optional Dual zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (DEATC) you can select the temperatures you and your passenger prefer and the system maintains it with advanced air conditioning.

Heated Seat

Heated Driver Seat

However cold it is outside, you can quickly warm yourself inside the cab with an optional Heated Driver Seat.

Passenger Safety

Active City Stop

Active City Stop

Optional Active City Stop is designed to help you avoid or reduce the impact of collisions in traffic. If the system detects a car in front has unexpectedly stopped, and you’re travelling under 30kph, it can automatically apply the brakes.

Blind Spot Information

Blind Spot Information

An optional Blind Spot Information System can help you change lanes more safely. Radar sensors scan the blind spots on either side of your vehicle, and if they detect a vehicle you can’t see, alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the door mirror.


Passenger Protection

The Tourneo Connect is available with curtain, driver, passenger and side airbags. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response.


5-Star Safety

As proof of its ability to protect you and your passengers, Tourneo Connect has been awarded a 5-star rating by Euro NCAP.

Ford Brake Assist

Emergency Braking

Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) helps your car achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. The system senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.

Ford ESC

Electronic Stability Control

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) constantly monitors your car’s progress, senses any deviations from your chosen driving line (if you start to skid, for example) and automatically assists in correcting your road position. The system is designed to help you maintain control of the car and can also help reduce stopping distances in an emergency.

For Peace of Mind

5 Year Warranty

5 Year Warranty

Peace of mind in protecting your investment. Warranty coverage can be transferred to subsequent owners should the vehicle be sold, ensuring that the strong residual values that Brotherwood vehicles benefit from are maximized.
