New Ford Mondeo Almost Here – Why You Should Care

Some people, especially Brits, have a slightly skewed view of the Ford Mondeo, particularly because of the quasi-uninspiring first-generation incarnation, the one that replaced the rear-wheel drive Sierra.

However, the one that followed, launched in 2000 was a great car in every respect, while the one that came after (in 2006-2007) is still on sale and competitive today, despite the fact that it should have been retired by now.

Europeans were cheated out of an all-new Mondeo, basically a renamed and slightly adapted version of the American Fusion, because of Ford’s financial troubles and their (sad) announcement of the Genk plant closure.

However, now, we’re on the verge of finally getting it, and it’s going to be the biggest departure for the nameplate yet. The key things it retains are the generous size, both inside and out, and a focus on driver involvement without sacrificing comfort (we’ve already watched the Fusion reviews so we kind of know what to expect).

It will be packed with considerably more tech than before, though, feature a less cluttered center console and eventually be made available with a one-liter turbo engine (probably boosted by electric supercharging).
The Vignale will also be a novelty in the range.

WhatCar lists the five key things you need to be aware of in the video posted below.
