The benefits of going compact if you can? Fuel mileage ran in the mid-20s, and with the 15.4-gallon fuel tank, range easily surpassed 300 miles. The Transit was easy to park, and it’s uncommon enough and quirky enough to get a thumbs-up from all kinds of people. The 2.0-liter, 136-hp four-cylinder engine had good power and torque, though we never got close to its maximum carrying capacity of 1600 pounds. Towing is not recommended, but hitches are available, and tow they do in Europe.
