Ford Mondeo (2015–)

Model History

September 2012

Ford debuts global Mondeo

It will be the first car in its segment equipped with a 1.0-litre powertrain, the 2012 “International Engine of the Year” 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, to deliver expected best-in-class fuel economy.

Mondeo wheel and tyre sizes:

16-inch with 215/60 R16 95V tyres (Michelin Cross Climates available)

17-inch with 235/50 R17 96W tyres

18-inch with 235/45 R18 98Y tyres (Michelin Cross Climates available)

19-inch with 235/40 R19 96Y tyres

The new Mondeo is the first Ford to feature headlamps with LED high-beam, low-beam and signal lighting. Quicker to illuminate, more durable and more energy-efficient than traditional filament bulb headlamps, the all-new Mondeo’s LED headlamps turn with the steering and adapt beam projection to vehicle speed – providing a greater depth of illumination at high speeds and a wider field of vision at slower speeds.

The interior delivers unprecedented levels of ergonomics and comfort, with superior craftsmanship throughout the driver-focused cockpit. Soft-touch materials, premium finishes and equipment contribute to the most premium Mondeo experience ever.

The all-new four-door Mondeo HEV is Ford’s first hybrid passenger car for Europe, and combines a specially-developed Atkinson Cycle 2.0-litre petrol engine with a 35kW lithium-ion battery allied to a CVT automatic transmission to provide high fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Total output 188PS, with 47PS from the electric motor alone which is capale of propelling the car to 100kmh on its own.

All new Mondeo also delivers the European debut of Ford’s rear inflatable seatbelts. These are designed to reduce head, neck and chest injuries for rear-seat passengers. In the event of an accident the belt rapidly expands to disperse crash forces across a body area five times greater than that achieved by a conventional seatbelt.

September 2013

Ford premiered Mondeo Vignale concept

The Vignale trim level will be introduced across several models in the Ford range, and as well as a luxury equipment level, will also be backed up by special dealer and customer services.

Ford Vignales will take the role reserved in the past for Ghia and subsequently Titanium X at the top of the range. The company promises that these cars will appeal to buyers looking for luxury in their family cars who would not necessarily consider Ford. Although full details are yet to be released, Ford promises that Vignale customers will have their own personal concierge within the dealership, which will possibly also extend to other services such as airport check-ins and appointment management.

In the Mondeo concept, the cabin is trimmed in quilted, soft touch leather with plenty of brushed aluminium and chrome details. The emphasis is on tasteful trim colours and materials, which have been especially selected to appeal to buyers in the luxury sector. The exterior styling has not been left untouched, and the Mondeo concept has Vignale styling details, such as chrome-finished 20-inch alloy wheels, upscale badging (without the word Mondeo to be seen anywhere), and an interesting new eggcate-style grille.

Technology features, too – the Mondeo Vignale has adaptive LED headlights to reduce glare and improve night time visibility and there’s Ford SYNC for connecting mobile phones and music devices. The first Vignale model is to be the Mondeo, which has been shown in both saloon and estate form, but the badge will be applied to other cars in Ford’s range later.

February 2015

Ford announced full Mondeo line up

Production started of Mondeos equipped with Ford's 1.0-litre EcoBoost - the first 1.0-litre petrol engine in a 'D' segment car, priced from £19,995. The line-up is further extended with a new 210PS bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine; a fuel-efficient new 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine; and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive technology for optimised traction and performance.

The 2015 Ford Mondeo now offers 14 powertrain combinations as part of a comprehensive four-door, five-door and wagon body-style range, including:

  • 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol manual
  • 160PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol manual and automatic
  • 240PS 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol automatic
  • 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel manual
  • 150PS and 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel manual and automatic
  • 150PS and 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
  • 210PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel automatic
  • 187PS petrol-electric hybrid

Ford's 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine version of Ford's 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is uniquely calibrated for Mondeo to deliver 55.4mpg and 119g/km CO 2 emissions. Core EcoBoost technologies include high-pressure direct fuel injection, and Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing. A low inertia turbocharger spins at up to 248,000rpm, more than 4,000 times per second.

Ford's new bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi engine delivers 210PS and 450Nm of torque - available from 2,000rpm - with CO2 emissions of 124g/km and 58.8 mpg in the ECDC tests. The new diesel engine is combined with Ford's six-speed PowerShift twin-clutch automatic gearbox, and enables 0-62mph acceleration in 7.9 seconds, priced at £750 over the equivalent specification 180PS model.

Electronically-controlled sequential bi-turbo design enables faster engine response. A small, low-inertia turbine is used to respond quickly to initial boost demand, and a larger high-inertia turbo is able to sustain greater boost pressure for peak performance.

Ford's advanced new 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine replaced the 115PS 1.6-litre TDCi, reducing CO 2 emissions by 5g/km to 104g/km with optimised combustion chamber design, new high-pressure fuel injection and Variable Nozzle Turbocharger technology delivering 70.6 mpg. The new Euro Stage VI emissions-compliant 1.5-litre TDCi also features a lean NOX trap for cleaner exhaust emissions, while internal friction is reduced with microscopic applications of diamond-like coating.

2015 Ford Mondeo buyers can now also specify Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with the 150PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission, or 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine and six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is offered at £1,500 over the equivalent front-wheel drive model.

Ford's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system offers a seamless transition between front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive performance to automatically enhance traction and road-holding when needed. The system continually measures how the car's wheels are gripping the road surface every 16 milliseconds, and can adjust power delivery to individual wheels in 100 milliseconds.

The new 2.0-litre TDCi engine with revised engine block, new cylinder-head and fuel injection designs, and Variable Nozzle Turbocharger technology was among the first all-new Mondeo models available to order from September 2014. The Mondeo range also includes a new 160PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with integrated exhaust manifold technology, a 240PS 2.0-litre EcoBoost model, and the all-new Mondeo Hybrid.

The first hybrid electric vehicle ever manufactured by Ford in Europe, the Mondeo Hybrid is available in four-door body-style and uses two electric motors and 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery combined with a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine to drive at up to 85mph in electric mode. The drivetrain delivers 187PS with 67.3mpg and 99g/km CO 2 * and is priced the same as the equivalent to the 2.0-litre TDCi model at £24,995

Optional advanced Ford technologies and comfort features include Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, which enables drivers to detect suitably-sized spaces and reverse hands-free into those parallel to the road or side-to-side with other cars. Dynamic LED headlights with Adaptive Front Lighting System adjust the headlight beam angle and intensity to match driving environment. Heated steering wheels have been specified on 27 per cent of models, and 20 per cent have heated rear seats.

August 2016

Mondeo ST-Line introduced

The newly announced Mondeo ST-Line, first shown at last month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, is available from £24,745.

18-09-2017: Mondeo range updated The former seven series making up the Mondeo range will be simplified to five. The new Zetec Edition becomes the entry level Mondeo, now priced at £19,445.

From Zetec Edition, Mondeo buyers have the choice of either prioritising the sporty specification of the existing ST-Line and new ST-Line Edition, or the luxury credentials of the new Titanium Edition model and range-topping Vignale.

All five models have navigation, DAB, autonomous braking to mitigate or avoid low-speed collisions at under 31mph, front/rear parking sensors and cruise control with speed limiter as standard. ST-Line series introduce extras including front, rear and side body styling, lowered sports suspension, Ford Power start button and darkened headliner. Privacy glass and 19-inch rock metallic alloy wheels are added on the ST-Line Edition.

The new Titanium Edition boasts premium leather heated seats, with front 10-way power adjustment. Since launch in Mondeo in 2015, Vignale has grown to represent 13 per cent of orders. At the start of this year a Vignale Nero appearance pack was introduced – comprising 19in dark tarnish alloys and darkened fog lamp bezels, lower grille and side strips – and now becomes standard Mondeo Vignale specification.

October 2018

Mondeo Hybrid updated

The Ford Mondeo Hybrid powertrain uses an electric motor to support the specially-developed 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine in driving the wheels and a generator to enable regenerative charging of the 1.4 kWh lithium-ion, air-cooled, recyclable battery located behind the rear seats. Regenerative braking technology captures up to 90 per cent of the energy normally lost during braking to replenish the battery.

The Mondeo Hybrid is capable of driving in pure electric mode, delivering ultimate refinement and efficiency particularly in city and stop-start driving scenarios. The hybrid powertrain delivers 187PS, supported by a Ford-developed continuously variable automatic transmission for further enhanced fuel efficiency.
