PROS: Smooth and refined ride with stong engine performance makes for an enjoyable driving experience. Spacious cabin.
CONS: The model doesn't come cheap, and the level of equipment provided is pretty poor.
Behind the Wheel
This car can make an impressive top speed of 134 mph, and travel from 0-62 mph in a respectable 9.5 seconds. The car's power output is 161 bhp.
The ride is a refined one with very little engine noise, or wind or road noise for that matter, entering the cabin. This is the case even at high speeds as the model is an accomplished motorway cruiser.
Sharp and responsive steering make for a smooth and pleasant driving experience. The car's suspension makes light work of bumps and road imperfections.
Looks & Equipment
For families looking to make the interior of their car slightly more luxurious and comfortable this model can be fitted with part leather seating for £775. MP3 connectivity and satellite navigation are not standard components of this car either but they can be purchased as joint option for £1,350. Rear parking sensors cost £450.
Standard features include cruise control, Bluetooth, climate control, and electric door mirrors and electric front windows.
Practicality, Safety & Reliability
The car has reasonable boot space, which is perhaps more important for families. When the rear seats are folded there is 1,448 litres of free space, and when the seats are up there is quite a spacious 528 litres to fill with belongings.
In terms of security, the car is well secured as the car has central locking as standard, and an alarm is also fitted. Both of these standard features protect the car when it is left unattended.
The car's safety for both the driver and passengers is apparent, as there are airbags for the driver, passengers and in the front side area of the vehicle.
The car is covered under warranty for three years, or up to 60,000 miles. This provides peace of mind for divers to know that throughout this duration there car is covered.
Value for Money
For £22,995 this car can be purchased. This may seem like a large pay out for a large family car but the running costs are particularly low and for a family vehicle this option is spacious and comfortable.
The car produces standard levels of CO2 emissions at 149 g/km. This is not as environmentally friendly as some cars but is fairly decent for a car of this class. The Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (163ps) Zetec Powershift 5dr is going to appeal to customers in terms of fuel consumption as it can perform on average at 50.4 mpg.
The model is let down by poor levels of equipment, and as such does not represent great value for money.
