What’s this? A petrol-electric hybrid version of the poshed-up Ford Mondeo Vignale. Haven’t we seen both of those things before? A hybrid Mondeo? Yes, and hopefully you avoided it like the plague, because its CVT-conducted petrol-electric drivetrain is straight out of the bad old days of eco motoring, with whining, droning, mooing choruses every time you breathe on the throttle, fairly unimpressive economy, and base-spec looks that no company car driver would want to be seen dead in. The Mondeo Vignale, meanwhile, is Ford’s attempt to land a punch on the premium brands like BMW and Audi by stopping customers who own top-spec Focuses, Mondeos and whathaveyou from assuming the only way to upgrade is to, well, not buy another Ford.
