At one time the Ford Mondeo was the dominant family saloon car and the newer version offers refinement and comfort as well as great engines and lots of equipment. This should help make it a popular choice again.
As a popular choice still with company car drivers, there are some great petrol and four diesel engines to choose from; a 1.5 litre and three 2.0 litre units. For the best economy, the 1.5 litre would be the best choice since it returns more than 70 mpg while having emissions of 94g/km. However, the best performer is the 2.0 litre diesel with a power output of 148 bhp which will return 65 mpg and has emissions of 115g/km. There are also some very good petrol engines including a four-cylinder 1.5 litre turbocharged unit that is powerful and returns 49 mpg. There's also a hybrid option too.
There's lots of space on board the Ford Mondeo which is also a practical choice and there is, obviously, more space for the estate version. It's still a great looking car with slender headlights and front nose that resembles Ford’s other cars. With three trim levels, the Mondeo has lots of equipment fitted as standard, better than many of its rivals, and includes an 8-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, LED tail lights and DAB radio. The Zetec trim is a favourite with drivers and this version comes with sports seats, satnav, automatic wipers and headlights.
This Mondeo also handles very well with responsive steering and agility at speed; some drivers believe it's not quite as nimble as the car it replaces but it's still good fun. The interior has definitely been improved and has an upmarket feel to it with everything well-designed and laid out
Essentially, the Ford Mondeo is still a very good family hatchback and estate car but it's up against some very stiff competition - not just from direct rivals but also from customers migrating to the crossover segment. This means that Ford has made an excellent job of their car which is still one of the best to drive. It's also a very quiet cabin which makes it a pleasant place on long journeys to be in.
