Ford Mondeo (2007–2015)

Last updated 29 April 2019

Very good to drive. Refined and comfortable to travel in. Massively roomy cabin and huge boot. Reasonable value. Efficient ECOnetic and EcoBoost models.
Large size means it can be tricky to park without parking sensors. Top model list prices quite high new.

Like most modern cars, the Ford Mondeo has grown in size to be bigger - and in this case better - than before. It's also more comfortable, refined and well equipped than ever, making the third generation Ford Mondeo a popular choice among savvy buyers.

The practical hatchback version boasts a huge boot, but there's also a saloon and a cavernous estate available. Whichever you go for, you'll be rewarded with a high quality and well built car that's great to drive, quiet and powered by a range of engines that offer everything from strong performance to outright economy.

It's so good that it's a genuine alternative to far more expensive cars from premium makes such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz, but you'll get far more car for your money, albeit without the associated image kudos the German brands enjoy.

The top versions are amazingly well equipped and have a luxury feel inside, while the entry-level models are superb value for money. It even looks good. In fact, there's very little to fault with the latest Mondeo, which is why it's one of our favourite cars. In 2009, the ECOnetic versions were launched which major on efficiency and low emissions. The 2.0 TDCI model has an impressive claimed fuel economy of 54.3mpg and emits 139g/km of CO2.
