Car reviews - Ford - Mondeo - sedan/hatch range


Ford re-enters the mid-size segment with its all-new Mondeo sedan and hatch range

19 Oct 2007

FORD Australia is back in the medium segment, with a sleek new Mondeo. It is a different car to the last Mondeo which rolled out of showrooms in 2002, with far more interior space, an upgraded interior and more of an emphasis on driving dynamics. Style is also critical and the new Mondeo is the first car in the Blue Oval stable to wear the new ‘kinetic’ design language that will soon spread through the range. Ford Australia is giving its comeback kid every chance of success with a super-sharp entry price for the base model LX. A standard six-speed automatic, seven airbags and electronic stability control make it an attractive proposition. A 2.3-litre petrol engine powers the base car and Zetec model, while a 2.0-litre diesel TDCi model is also available. Ford Australia is also leveraging the XR5 Turbo nameplate with the Mondeo, applying it to a 2.5-litre Turbo model that tops the range. The Mondeo range consists of both four-door sedan and five-door hatch models.

Released: July 1995

Family Tree: Mondeo

The last Mondeo sold in Australia, the previous-generation HA/HE-series discontinued in Australia in December 2000, wasn't a stellar success for Ford. Available in LX, GLX and Ghia sedan guises, plus an LX wagon, it packed a mild 97kW/175Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder, mated to either five-speed manual or four-speed auto transmissions. An ST24 sedan was also on offer in its final year, powered by a 125kW/220Nm 2.5-litre V6. The base LX was priced from under $28,000, but the ST pushed Mondeo prices to $34,730.
