Ford Mondeo

Mk V Mondeo

1 Apr 2015

Ford’s long-delayed Mondeo mid-sizer finally arrived in April 2015, charged with reinvigorating the Blue Oval’s presence in the competitive segment.

While not a direct replacement for the Falcon that ends production in 2016, the Mondeo became the car-maker’s sole mid-size to large passenger car offering.

The Mondeo was again offered in hatch and wagon guise and was available with a trio of powertrains.

Base Ambiente variants got the 149kW/345Nm version in hatch and wagon, while Trend and Titanium hatches had a bit of extra kick with 177kW and the same amount of torque. The revised Duratorq 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine produced 132kW/400Nm and all variants were front-wheel drive and used a six-speed automatic transmission.

Ford’s Sync2 system with voice activation was standard across the range, as was an 8.0-inch high-res touchscreen, electric park brake, emergency assistance system that contacts emergency services if the driver is incapacitated after an accident and the vehicle is connected to a mobile phone network, hill launch assist, paddle shifters and a driver fatigue monitor.
