2020 Ford Mondeo Facelift Unveiled With Wagon Hybrid Variant

The facelifted Ford Mondeo has been unveiled at the 2019 Brussels Motor Show in Belgium, and features a few design updates, new technologies, engines and a hybrid version of the estate.

Available for the first time, the Mondeo Wagon Hybrid combines the 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine with an electric motor and a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. It produces a combined output of 187 PS (184 hp / 137 kW) and is mated to an internally-developed power-split automatic transmission that’s supposed to emulate the performance of a CVT.

The hybrid Mondeo is equipped with regenerative braking technology, which helps it achieve an average consumption of 4.4 l/100 km (64.2 mpg UK / 53.4 mpg US). Moreover, the electrically-powered air conditioning, powering cooling and vacuum systems reduce drag on the engine, there’s a specially developed exhaust gas heat recovery system as well, which helps warm the cabin faster, and a system that encourages gradual braking, helping return more energy to the battery.

The new Mondeo Wagon Hybrid provides 403 liters (14.2 cu-ft) of boot space beneath the cargo cover and has an extra storage space beneath the floor. With the rear seats folded down, the capacity increases to a massive 1,508 liters (53.3 cu-ft).

Joining the engine family is the new 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel, with three power levels: 120 PS (118 hp / 88 kW), 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) and 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW). The latter two can be paired to the new eight-speed automatic transmission, whereas the first one is offered with a six-speed manual. Customers can spec the EcoBlue-powered Mondeos with all-wheel drive as well.

The revised Mondeo family adds Adaptive Cruise Control, Stop & Go, Speed Limiter and Traffic Sign Recognition as well.

Subtle visual updates on the outside amplify the visual difference between the Titanium, ST-Line and Vignale trim levels. Each grade has a new grille, with horizontal chrome slats for the Titanium, a black look for the ST-Line and a flying-V finish for the Vignale.

The lower grille has been revised and is flanked by new fog lights, there are new C-shaped taillights, different 17- and 18-inch alloy wheel designs, a Liquid Aluminum finish option for the 19-inch rims, and new exterior color options.

Inside, the revised Mondeo gets a rotary gear shift dial for models equipped with the 8-speed auto. This has freed up additional storage space in the center console, where a USB port is now found. Elsewhere, the interior gets new seat fabric, decorative elements and door handle appliques.

    This is NOT the rumored “new” Fusion that is supposedly being developed for Europe, et al. Minor update.

    • Matthijs

      It’s been clear for a while that they would introduce another facelift of the Mondeo and that a new Fusion/Mondeo probably won’t happen..

  • MarketAndChurch

    That Sport model, if priced cheaper, could save Fusion sales here in the US.

  • StrangerGP

    403l of boot space is laughable in a huge wagon like the Mondeo. Hybrid version shouldn’t take away so much cargo space.

    • Knotmyrealname

      C’mon!!! How many plant pots do you need to haul around???

    • Althea Later

      How is a Fusion huge? In the 1970s, a Fusion would have been considered a compact/mid size car.

  • Christian

    Why not give us the 3-liter V6 TWin Turbo version that the US GOT..400Bhp, nice match for the bit slower Insignia GSi…

    • Jørn-tommy Skjellnes

      i would only sell in Germany and Uk, in other countries where taxes and gasprices are high i will not sell at all, a 3,0 v6Twin Turbo would have a price aboght 75-120000 euro in som european countries.

  • Matthijs

    Ford has failed miserably with their One Ford Strategy. In Europe we don’t want a South-American Ka+ or EcoSport nor do we want a Mondeo that was already for sale for a while in the US. And that interior is still a let down

    • charlotteharry57

      Yeah, funny how the interior is still a mishmash of the previous (US) interior and the current one. The exterior updates are primarily what we already have. Some of those grilles (think Vignale) are atrocious and not offered in the US.

    • LJ

      The European Mondeo isn’t from the US, it’s the other way around… the Mondeo is our current Fusion.

      • Matthijs

        That’s not what I said. The Fusion went for sale in October 2012 for the US. Europe followed 2 years later. That was way too long and Ford missed it’s mark

    • MarketAndChurch

      It doesn’t matter because you Europeans don’t buy midsize sedans anyways. I agree about the Ka+ and the Ecosport but you have the Fiesta so it can’t be all that bad.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Looks like the upgrade to the wagon includes 500kg of weight in the trunk!

  • Blade t

    For a wagon , i think it looks pretty good..

    • Althea Later

      Lot’s of wagons look good

      • Blade t

        Maybe,, to sombody that loves Staton wagons ..

  • no25

    Bless this car and her many, many facial surgeries. It won’t be long until all these facelifts end her…oh wait.

  • Galaxium

    When the Fusion/Mondeo came out, I was really confused how people were saying this car looked sexy.

    It’s not. It looks bloated and the design looked boring.

  • AnEmptyStreet

    I’m still kind of sore that Ford US didn’t give us the Mondeo instrument cluster when they updated the Fusion for 2017. It looks so much better than the outdated analog speedometer flanked by two tiny screens. Stylistically it also matches the shape of the instrument cluster much better.

  • Kagan

    They destroyed it after MK3.

  • datCubanguy

    That’s great all but,can it make me some coffee on the way to the office?

  • Kagan

    To old to bold.
