Ford has announced upgraded versions of its acclaimed Mondeo executive car range, including new series specified for both private and business customers.
The new Ford Mondeo Graphite offers retail buyers a compelling combination of exterior appeal and excellent interior features with prices from £15,995.
Following the success of the Ford Mondeo Zetec Business Edition, the new Titanium X Business Edition offers even higher standards of technology and interior luxury, which have helped to secure residual values five percentage points higher than the outgoing Mondeo Titanium X, despite prices being £1,500 lower on the new model.
Ford Mondeo models equipped with the reputed 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine – available across all series (except Titanium X Sport) – offer CO2 emissions from just 119g/km across both 140PS and 163PS power outputs – a reduction of up to 10g/km – with the 163PS version offering more power than Mondeo’s comparable rivals. Fuel consumption is improved from 57.6mpg to 61.4mpg.
Ford refined the calibration of the Mondeo’s 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel engine and optimised aerodynamics to achieve 119g/km targeted CO2 emissions from the five-door version and 120g/km from the estate*. These lower CO2 levels qualify for annual road tax (VED) of £30, down from £105.
