MOSCOW – The new Transit Connect/Tourneo Connect received a sought-after Golden Klaxon award at a presentation ceremony in Moscow last week.
The Ford models won the top award in the “special transport” category at the 13th annual automotive Golden Klaxon awards.
The awards, established by the Klaxon newspaper in 2001, recognise the best new models in each segment. Sixteen awards were presented this year, with the award winners being chosen by a jury comprising Klaxon professionals.
This latest Golden Klaxon award takes to nine the number awarded to the Ford brand in Russia. Ford received its first Golden Klaxon in 2002 in recognition of the investments the company had made to the Russian economy.
The all-new Transit Connect will enter the Russian market later this year
