Punchy diesel generates smooth performance in a new, quieter bodyshell

Our Verdict

The Ford Mondeo is a fine car in most areas. The family hatch is still a class leader even as its replacement nears

The Mondeo especially in Titanium X spec will always seem a bit too dear, but that should not detract from what is a good car and now of course even more rare in this country than the 3-Series.

Buy at six months old at a car supermarket and get a ridiculously good machine for the money.

[/quote] Quite right - almost £25k for a Mondeo is far too much - if you look around you could get an Audi for that and it would be worth a whole lot more after 3 years. It's the depreciation that really kills these kinds of car.

*3 but not good for Ford.

esp when the hatch has always resembled a startled upturned halibut.

Nobody in their right mind ever paid list price for a Ford (or for that matter Vauxhall etc). Haggle or, better still, buy one a couple of months old, and you will be getting a car that is better performing, specced and constructed than the current VAG output, and the majority of its depreciation will have gone. You will also get a car that is enjoyable to drive, rather than merely okay.

Very good car overall but Its a bit ugly now isn't it? The Insignia is better looking.

Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 163 is truly amazing! Ford truly unveils the best car in town. This can be a perfect time to purchase a new vehicle, and also you would not want to miss out on the amazing costs and bargains being offered. You can go to this good website I came across to find a dealership near you. I wound up going to a dealership in Spokane to find a Ford with help from the website. Will you be in the market to buy or sell a new or used Ford F 150|Ford Expedition|Ford Explorer|Ford Flex? If this describes you, don’t go any place else before you have a look at used car sales Spokane WA. Have  a safe drive guys!

    Elegant, alluring and with some welcome improvements, but not good enough to lead the class

    Hushed, flexible and remarkable value for money. Arguably more fit-for-purpose than any other ‘S’.

    The Mazda CX-3 has style and substance, and deserves consideration for anyone wanting a compact urban SUV. Here’s hoping Mazda gets the price and equipment right
