The updates Ford has made to its Mondeo reinforces the car’s position among the very best in competitive classes. A five-door hatchback and five-door estate are now joined by the four-door saloon to broaden the reach of this famous model name. Each has sharp new looks and an exceptional cabin design in addition to Ford’s very latest technology.
Aggression and elegance sum up the Mondeo’s overall look well. Narrow headlamps at the end of a contoured bonnet create a look of determination, while chrome detailing for the side window surrounds and roof rails (Estate only) are luxurious additions.
The alloy wheels and front fog lights with dynamic cornering function are standard features that enhance the car’s form and function. For each shape you can specify the paint finish that matches your tastes and couple it with the alloy wheel design of your choosing.
First-rate materials have been used in every area of the interior to strengthen the car’s premium status. Its durable cloth or leather upholstery also remain in a superb condition for longer so that no quality is lost after years of ownership. Relax in the driver’s seat with manually adjustable lumbar and height. The nearby centre armrest conceals a storage area which is one of many. The hatchback holds 550 litres of cargo when in five-seat mode, and maximum capacity is offered by the estate. When you fold the rear bench down the back section can carry as much as 1,630 litres with the Instant Mobility System included.
The inside of the Mondeo is a connected as well as comfortable place to be. Ford SYNC 2 with Emergency Assistance, Bluetooth®, voice control, and two USB ports form the entry-level audio and communications system. You command it through an eight-inch touchscreen display or the multifunction steering wheel. Built-in satellite navigation is a standard function in the Titanium and Titanium HEV models, but you can add it as an optional extra inside the Style and Zetec if required. Every variant keeps you warm or cool through Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control (DEATC), and rear air conditioning also features in all but the Mondeo Style.
Strong petrol and diesel power is matched by rewarding efficiency from the Mondeo’s engines. Buying the four-door saloon drives you forward with a hybrid powertrain that generates 185bhp from a 2.0-litre engine and accompanying electric motor. The hybrid unit releases 99g/km of CO2, meaning you won’t pay road tax for the first year. As returns of 67.3mpg combined are possible the engine also saves a significantly large amount in fuel expenses. Equally rewarding returns are possible from the combustion-powered Mondeos. The 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi ECOnetic unit with auto start/stop boosts fuel economy to 78.5mpg combined (Hatchback). Like the hybrid it emits sub 100g/km of CO2 so you avoid road tax for a year.
Just as Ford’s technology has a large part to play in the Mondeo’s performance, it also influences how safe the car is. An unbeatable five-star crash rating from Euro NCAP should reassure you that it is extremely safe. An Intelligent Protection System (IPS) incorporates multiple active and passive features, such as an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) which senses a loss of stability and takes steps to correct it. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) prevents the wheels from seizing up when stopping sharply, and the Traction Control System (TCS) finds grip on slippery surfaces. A rigid safety cell around the cabin is further supported by ISOFIX child seat mountings, seatbelts with pre-tensioners and leading-edge airbags.
