Spied: 2011 Ford Mondeo


Here is the pictures that prove Ford’s Mondeo is going under the knife!

Following on from the facelifted S-MAX MPV (driven on Page 30), the blue oval is readying a revised version of its popular family car. And our team of eagle-eyed spies caught a prototype virtually undisguised during testing.

As with the S-MAX, the new Mondeo benefits from a subtle rework on the outside. That means modified front and rear bumpers, plus LED daytime running lights for top-spec Titanium and Titanium X models. The most significant changes come under the bonnet, with the introduction of the firm’s EcoBoost direct-injection turbo petrol engines. There will be a choice of 160bhp 1.6-litre or 200bhp 2.0 versions – both 20 per cent more efficient than the units they replace.

Ford’s double-clutch Powershift gearbox will be an option for the first time, while the diesel line-up will also be updated with the arrival of a new 160bhp 2.0-litre TDCi unit. Hatch, saloon and estate variants will all benefit from the changes.

The new Mondeo is expected to make its debut at October’s Paris Motor Show, before being launched towards the end of the year. Prices are set to start from around £16,000. For more details click here.
