Mondeo man is spoilt

for choice

MONDEO MAN has never had it so good.

Back in 1993 when the original 'car for the world' replaced the Ford Sierra, the Mondeo came with a choice of just three engines.

Now into its fifth generation the popular Ford can be ordered with no less than 14 powertrain combinations - the widest-ever Mondeo line-up.

And the Blue Oval brand is also introducing its award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, as well as a new 1.5-litre TDCi diesel and high-power 210PS 2.0-litre diesel units.

The 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost, costing from £19,995, is uniquely calibrated for Mondeo to deliver 55.4mpg and 119g/km of CO2 emissions.

It has the power of a larger engine thanks to its high-pressure direct fuel injection, while its turbocharger spins at almost twice the maximum rpm of those powering Formula 1 racing cars.

So far, the 150PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel has proved to be the most popular at 43 per cent, while 52 per cent of consumers have opted for the estate bodystyle. Panther Black is the most popular colour.

Mondeo customers can now also specify Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with the 150PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission, or 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi with PowerShift automatic transmission.

All-Wheel Drive costs £1,500 over the equivalent front-wheel drive model.

Advanced technologies and comfort features have proved to be a hit, including Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, which enables drivers to detect spaces and reverse in hands-free.

Ford has received almost 5,000 Mondeo orders in the UK since the car was launched late last year.
