Car reviews - Ford - Mondeo - Zetec 5-dr wagon
The medium wagon is back in town with the arrival of the excellent Ford Mondeo Zetec
27 Nov 2009
WHAT else is Ford to do but import the Belgian-built Mondeo wagon? The Falcon wagon feels like the fossil it is against the fine Commodore Sportwagon, the Escape is from an era long ago and the European Kuga SUV is a species non-gratis in Australia for now. Luckily for the Blue Oval, the Zetec wagon just happens to be one of the best family cars you can buy for under $40,000. So before you buy that SUV or second-hand luxury wagon from Germany, you really ought to check out the Mondeo first.
