Despite the apt setting for the sporty Mondeo’s reveal, the ST-Line trim offers no performance upgrades, instead bringing aggressive exterior styling and interior upgrades to the saloon.
Outside, the Mondeo ST-Line gets an exclusive body kit and 18in or 19in unique alloy wheels, along with contrasting exterior trim and badging on the front fenders. A spoiler is standard on the Mondeo estate ST-Line, and is an optional extra on the five-door version.
Engines are towards the top of the Mondeo range – the 148bhp and 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel units from the existing Mondeo lineup are the only engines available with the ST-Line setup. Meanwhile, all-wheel drive and Ford’s Powershift automatic transmission are also available; the latter has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Sport suspension is the only mechanical upgrade to feature on this restyled Mondeo, which lowers the car by 10mm.
