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.

The sophisticated Ford Mondeo is now available as a self-charging hybrid, offering greater efficiency and sleeker styling than ever before. Combining cutting-edge design with the latest engineering innovations, it delivers a drive that’s refined, powerful and exciting.
Beautifully sculpted and full of charisma, the new Ford Mondeo Hybrid makes a clear statement out on the road. Fluid lines and an aerodynamic silhouette give it presence, while the hexagonal grille and slender headlights enhance its purposeful attitude. Available as an estate or saloon, it comes in a wide range of striking colours, from Blazer Blue to Diffused Silver, and rides on 18-inch alloy wheels which complement its elegant aesthetic.
Step inside and you’re instantly enveloped in a comfortable and refined environment. Relax into the contoured seating with optional massage function and set the mood with the customisable ambient lighting. With a cockpit that’s designed around you, you’ll feel in complete control, with every function you need at your fingertips. Your passengers, meanwhile, can stretch out in the back thanks to the generous legroom, and the large boot accommodates everything from golf clubs to suitcases.
Under the Mondeo Hybrid’s bonnet is a 2.0-litre petrol engine, which works with a battery-powered electric motor to produce an impressive 187PS. Ignite the engine and you can make the 0-62mph sprint in just 9.2 seconds, all while enjoying lower CO2 emissions and a fuel consumption of just 54.3mpg. There’s no need to decide which powertrain to use either – the Mondeo Hybrid selects the perfect option for the driving conditions, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the ride.
Efficiency is further improved with a regenerative braking system, which captures as much as 90% of the energy normally lost through braking and diverts it to the battery to help it recharge. And with SmartGauge and EcoGuide assisting your efforts to save fuel, you’ll soon be experiencing a cleaner drive than ever.
Not only does the new Ford Mondeo Hybrid incorporate the latest engine technology, it features innovations when it comes to safety too. Active measures, such as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping System, work to alert you to potential hazards and can even help you avoid accidents altogether. Other systems, meanwhile, like rear inflatable seatbelts, mitigate the risk of injury should a collision occur.
The model also benefits from optional features such as Active Park Assist to make your experience more convenient.
