The Ford Mondeo recently celebrated its 25th birthday. Now, in its fourth generation, this popular model is better than ever. This big, spacious car is a genuine all-rounder, making it perfect for families and businesses alike. It’s also one of the very best vehicles in its class to drive.
The handsome Mondeo rides on 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, and features a swooping roofline, providing the car with its arresting silhouette. The vehicle can be selected in one of a range of eye-catching paint finishes, including Blazer Blue, which is applied as standard. Optional colours include Frozen White and Shadow Black. Whichever hue you opt for, it will be subtly enhanced by a range of body-coloured fixtures that include power-operated and heated door mirrors.
A spacious cabin offers room for five – and the driver is provided with an adjustable position, a tilt-and-telescopic leather-clad steering wheel and a good view of the road ahead. Automatic air-conditioning (with dual-zone climate control) and all-round electric windows are standard inclusions, helping to keep everyone at just the right temperature. The Mondeo features an array of stowage spaces, including cup-holders and capacious door pockets. A wide-opening 541-litre boot features a low load sill, making placement and retrieval of heavy items as simple as possible. Whenever more capacity is required, the car’s rear seats can be folded to produce a 1,437-litre luggage space.
The Mondeo is typically powered by a 1.0-litre 125bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 55.4mpg and produces a 119g/km CO2 emission figure. For even greater fuel-efficiency, opt for variants that are installed with a 1.5-litre 120bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 78.5mpg, while producing emissions as low as 94g/km.
Technology and safety
An eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system is installed as standard, and includes an eight-speaker stereo (with DAB radio) and satellite navigation (with voice control and 3D mapping). Bluetooth connectivity features too, enabling audio streaming and hands-free mobile communication.
The Mondeo’s five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating ensures that it is one of the safest automobiles around. Driver aids such as Cruise Control and Active City Stop are included as standard. The former allows the driver to set a maximum speed ahead of each journey, while the latter appreciably minimises low-speed collisions. Passive safety features, such as a suite of airbags and ISOFIX child-seat anchors, ensure that occupants of all ages are protected.
