Snackable Review: Ford Mondeo

Welcome the new Ford Mondeo, a refined family car that has what it takes to grab the Ford Falcon’s baton and run with it.

PLUS

  • Space – Ford has very smartly packaged the Mondeo. It is smaller on the outside, but bigger inside with a huge, easy access boot.
  • Safety – Mondeo is the first car to be sold in Australia with rear seat belt airbags as standard. Bravo.
  • Entertainment – Digital radio is a standard feature in all Mondeo models.
  • Assistance – As well as advanced safety systems, the Mondeo also has an emergency assistance function that can get help to you in the event of an accident.
  • Keys – It’s not often we mention a car’s keys, but the Mondeo’s intelligent fobs can be set to limit car speed if being used by a young driver.
  • Dynamics – The Mondeo is a great car to drive spiritedly. Excellent ride quality and poise.

MINUS

  • Interior – While it’s big inside, the interior could be better finished in top-spec models. It lacks the premium feel you find in some rivals.
  • Weight – At over 1600kg, the Mondeo is a heavy beast. You don’t necessarily feel its heft through cornering, but it does have a negative impact on fuel economy.
