What is it?
The Mondeo comes as a large five door hatchback, a five-door estate and a hybrid four-door saloon. There are four trim levels and six engine choices plus the hybrid. This fourth-generation Mondeo was introduced in 2014.
What is the Ford Mondeo like to drive?
This latest Mondeo is more civilised than the last - which itself was hardly lacking - mixing a comfortable driving position with a supple ride and good noise suppression, making long journeys painless. As with every past Mondeo, this latest version handles very capably, and it’s easy to drive, too. The three diesel engines mix strong pulling power with good economy, the 1.6 providing the best mix of the two, the more powerful 2.0 delivering plenty of punch. Among the petrol engines the 1.5 turbo is a more convincing all-rounder than the 1.0 three-cylinder turbo, while the 240hp 2.0 turbo delivers sporting performance even with its standard-fit six-speed automatic. The 2.0 diesel and 1.5 petrol are particularly quiet.
What engines are available?
There are six Mondeo engines, plus a petrol hybrid. The diesels start with a 115hp 1.6 TDCI and include 2.0 TDCIs of 150hp and 180hp. Petrol engines include a downsized three cylinder 125hp 1.0T Ecoboost, 160hp 1.5T and a 240hp 2.0T, all of these turbocharged. The 2.0 hybrid develops 187hp. All models apart from the 240hp petrol automatic come with six-speed transmissions as standard, Ford’s Power Shift automatic available on the 150hp 2.0 TDCI, a six-speed auto optional on the 1.5T. All versions have engine stop-start.

How spacious is the Ford Mondeo?
This is a big car with plenty of space front and rear, even if the hatchback’s fastback roofline is slightly confining. Both hatch and estate have big boots, and both are easy to load. The rear seats fold on both hatch and estate to provide impressive loadbays. On-board oddments storage is very good.
