Insurance Groups are between 17–29
On average it achieves 76% of the official MPG figure
It might face an uncertain future against the backdrop of ever-increasing SUVs, but the Ford Mondeo still makes a strong case for itself by providing premium quality and comfort at a price that most family car buyers can still afford.
Like the previous Mondeo, this is a big car. In fact it's only slightly shorter than the Jaguar XF but has the same wheelbase as before. Ford worked wonders with the styling, adding a dash of coupe-like flair to the profile that makes it appear a lot less bulky than the model it replaces.
Yet it still has huge amount of space inside with a massive boot and lots of rear leg room that rivals the Skoda Superb and makes the Mondeo a comfortable fit for up to five adults on a long journey. The cabin is refined too and the high levels of standard equipment on the latest models (built from 2018 onwards) means you don't have to raid the options list to get things like touchscreen navigation, dual-zone air con or a centre arm rest for the rear seats.
Consequently it's an ideal motorway cruiser helped by economical engines, low road noise and a supple ride quality. These include a 1.5 TDCi diesel that emits just 94g/km and will average more than 78mpg according to the official figures.
Originally, Ford had intended offering the car with its 1.0 litre 3 cylinder 125PS Ecoboost engine, but later thought better of it, so engines started with a 150PS 1.5 4-cylinder Ecoboost (manual or 6-speed torque converter auto), 1.5TDCI and Ford's trusty 2.0 TDCi. Top engine remains the 240PS 2.0SCTI Ecoboost, now fitted with a 6-speed torque converter auto, though the 2.0TDCI kept its wet clutch Powershift. For the first time there is also a Mondeo Hybrid originall only available as a saloon.
Running throughout the latest Mondeo is a feeling of quality previously unseen on any Ford model. This Mondeo should mark a big change in how people perceive the Ford brand and as a family car it's a superb all-rounder. The market might be decline, but the Mondeo remains head and shoulders above its diminishing competition.
