New Mondeo revealed
It has been a case of two cars in two days for Ford as the new Mondeo was revealed this morning.
It comes after the unveiling of the new look Ford Fiesta yesterday with both cars expected to show off to the public at the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month.
The new Mondeo shares many styling features with the new Fiesta, the most prominent of which is the front bumper including that distinctive new grille.
There are also the same bonnet lines and sleak headlights giving the Mondeo a far more aggressive look than its predecessor.
The headline news is that Ford’s new saloon will be the latest car to feature the 1 litre Ecoboost engine.
This might sound a little ambitious, trying to power a car the size of the Mondeo with an engine that sounds more at home in a KA but this is no ordinary 1 litre engine after all.
In fact the 123bhp produced by the new Ecoboost makes the new entry level more powerful than the previous model which was powered by a 118bhp naturally aspirated 1.6 petrol.
It should also deliver economy and emissions that will rival most diesel cars in the class.
The new Mondeo will also join it’s fellow Fords in receiving the latest in-car technology, including SYNC entertainment system and MyFord Touch system, which will allow voice control for all major systems.
The new Mondeo will first appear at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September but is not expected to hit UK showrooms until early next year.
