Mondeo gets raft of new technology

Thursday 27 September 2012

Ford has announced the vast array of new technology which will make the new Mondeo one of their most sophisticated cars to date.

This includes new innovations to benefit all aspects of the car for both the driver and passengers.

“These features underline the sophisticated quality, technology and driving experience that all-new Mondeo delivers,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president Product Development.

Under the skin there is a new integral link rear suspension set up which aims to improve ride comfort, road noise whilst not impacting on the Mondeo’s trademark handling.

This is coupled with an electronic power-steering system rather than the traditional hydraulic set up which worked so successfully on the old model.

This will be one development which will have to prove itself to the Mondeo faithful.

Parking is made easier thanks to Ford’s new Advanced Active Parking Assist, their first system to support automated parallel and perpendicular reverse parking.

At the front of the car there is a class first, full LED, adaptive headlights.

Finally, for the driver’s amusement there is the new Ford SYNC with MyFord Touch, an entertainment system that offers full mobile integration.

It features an 8-inch touch-screen, the ability to operate as a WiFi hotspot and a voice command system that lets the driver control anything from the stereo to the climate control.
