Background
Not for nothing was the phrase Mondeo man coined. This is heartland stuff for Middle England – and the very act of ownership says plenty about you. Like you enjoy a well built, fine handling car with space and style in spades. For more information on the Mondeo car range, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
The new model has taken so long to arrive - it was first shown at the 2012 Detroit motor show and has only gone on sale in Europe three years later - that you'd be forgiven for believing the Mondeo was old before its time. But it's a competitive drive and dripping with technology. It's amazing to think that a volume maker like Ford can afford to stuff bendy lights, lane-following tech, Active Nibble compensation and inflatable airbag seatbelts, but they have. If anything, technophobes might even argue there's too much gadgetry on the new Mondeo. But underneath it all lies a decent-driving family car, available as a hatchback or estate (the latter with fine load-lugging capabilities). Is it as sharp to drive as its predecessors? No. The electronics have put paid to that. But it's still a very comfortable family chariot.
