If you prefer to have a large economical car then a five-seat mpv, you can’t go far wrong with choosing Ford’s Mondeo. The Mondeo has always been a fine car to drive and this latest version doesn’t disappoint. I drove the 2.0 TDCi which pushes out 140hp, for a car of this size its performance is sufficient and propels the Mondeo along without any fuss, there’s a good amount of feedback through the steering wheel and the six speed manual gearbox is refined.
The car’s exterior has been modernised, aided at the front with LED daytime running lights and wrap-around rear tail lights. The Lunar Sky colour of my test car certainly gives the car that executive look, along with the 17” alloys which come fitted as standard in the Titanium spec.
The Mondeo is available from €26,495, my top-spec Titanium comes in at €32,495 and is suitably equipped to a premium level. Amongst the many innovative features included, it has automatic headlights and wipers, auto-dimming rear view mirror, and Alcantara leather trim sports seats. Inside there’s a vast amount of legroom for rear seat occupants and it’s comfortable up front too. Overall, it’s an excellent all-rounder in terms of space, performance and economy.[table “9” not found /]
