Ford Mondeo news - Geneva show: Ford Mondeo - 2007

Read more on:

The current Ford Mondeo
has been knocking around for seven years, and following a few teasing
appearances on the big screen and elsewhere, the covers have finally come off
the third-generation of Ford’s family favourite in Geneva.

The Mondeo doesn’t depart
significantly from Ford’s tried-and-tested big car philosophy, but that’s
hardly surprising with over 1.5 million cars sold in the UK since 1993.

It’s a good-looking car,
though, with strong lines and a more pronounced shoulder line echoing Ford’s
‘kinetic design’ styling philosophy.

Predictably, it’ll come in
four-door, five-door and estate guises, with four petrol and three diesel
engines will be available at launch.

These range from the
entry-level 1.6-litre Ti-VCT to the 2.5-litre five-cylinder out of the Focus
ST. The big shifters are likely to be the diesels, though, with 1.8- and
2.0-litre variants both getting six-speed manual ‘boxes.

Ford’s engineers say that
they’ve been hard at work to improve the Mondeo’s driveability and reduce noise
and vibration in the cabin, so it should be a relaxing and gentle drive.

Available to order
immediately, the new Mondeo should reach the UK in June with prices starting at £14,995.
