SCOOP: New Ford Mondeo Prototype Spotted Out in the Open, will Replace the U.S. Fusion as Well

Our spy photographers captured a development prototype of Ford’s new global mid-size sedan sporting a modified platform but with most body parts sourced from the current Mondeo saloon, during testing in Europe.

In the likes of the latest Fiesta and more recently, the new Focus that are available in more or less the same form worldwide, the next generation of the Mondeo will serve as truly global model for Ford in the popular mid-size segment.

In the States, it will replace the Ford Fusion, though it remains to be seen if the Detroit automaker will keep the name or choose the same moniker as its European sibling.

Whatever the name, the styling will be common for all regions with the Mondeo being one of the first cars to adopt Ford’s new and sharper design DNA as showcased on the EVOS concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Ford has already given us a first taste of its new range of EcoBoost engines and the Mondeo is expected to offered with the full lineup including the 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-bangers making up to around 250-horses.

A full hybrid model will be part of the range while at least in Europe, Ford will also offer a variety of clean diesel engines.

The sedan model will be joined by a station wagon variant.

Look for the new Mondeo in showrooms within the next year or so.
