Driving

What is it like to drive?

Make no mistake – like the Focus, Ford’s latest Mondeo isn’t quite the gigglesome handler it once was – but it’s so much more refined at a cruise that the trade-off is totally worth it. This is a motorway-special repmobile after all. A reduction in road and wind noise and a more resolved, mature ride – that’s what you’ll notice when hopping from the old Mondeo Estate into this one.

Sure, along the way it’s also gained a steering numbness and lack of adjustability that robs it of Ford’s trademark ‘drivers’ car’ mantra, but you’d have to concede that for what most people actually buy Mondeos for, the new version’s a much more refined, sorted companion. It's the sort of premium feel BMW 3-Series customers will be pleased to discover, and it may even tip the balance for a few of them.
