Ford Mondeo range topped and tailed

Ford has announced lower-priced and upgraded versions of the Mondeo range, including two new series aimed maintaining sales following the news that the UK launch of the all-new model has been put back to the end of 2014.

The new entry-level Ford Mondeo Graphite range kicks off at £15,995 for the 1.6-litre car, around £2100 less than the previous lowest-priced model, the Edge. Also a new Business Edition of theTitanium X has been rolled out. The new Titanium X Business Edition has more equipment than the outgoing Titanium X, despite prices being £1500 lower for the new model.     

The 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi also receives some updates. Thanks to some clever re-tuning, output has been reduced to 119g/km for the hatchback and 120g/km for the estate, across both 140PS and 163PS power outputs. This is a useful reduction of up to 10g/km across the board. Fuel consumption is also improved from 57.6mpg to 61.4mpg.

This change means the 2.0-litre diesel Mondeos now qualify for annual road tax (VED) of £30, down from £105. Here's a full run-down of the equipment packages for both cars.

Wonder why the UK market has to wait longer for the new Mondeo...

It's the New Mondeo that i'd like to see launched , rather than tweaking the current one. Any update on when the New Mondeo will be going on sale ?
