Lexus IS or Ford Mondeo?

Thinking about buying a new car but I am undecided between the Ford Mondeo 2.2 TD X Sport and a Lexus IS F Sport TDI.

Which is the better car, value for money, reliability etc.?

The Mondeo. The diesel Lexis IS is too high geared.

Very good to drive. Refined and comfortable to travel in. Massively roomy cabin and huge boot. Reasonable value. Efficient ECOnetic and EcoBoost models.
Very well built. Top quality interior. Lexus dealers are best in the business. Impressive refinement. All engines chain cam. IS250 probably the most reliable car you can buy.
