The 2013 Ford Mondeo will come as a regular five door and estate but there will also be a four wheel diesel and a hybrid option.
As expected, Ford’s ‘Go Further’ event in Amsterdam revealed details of lots of new stuff (like the EcoSport SUV heading to the UK), but a lot of the ‘now’ stuff was on the 2013 Mondeo.
We’ve already reported that the new Mondeo will get the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine as an option – the first time any car in the D Segment has had such a small engine – but there’s more to the new Mondeo than just a headline little engine and an Aston Martin grill.
As well as the frugal EcoBoost engine, Ford will also be launching their first hybrid in Europe with a Mondeo Hybrid boasting a 2.0-litre petrol engine with a 35kW lithium-ion battery to trim official emissions and consumption as much as possible.
Also on offer – no surprise – is the new Mondeo Estate, although our colonial cousins will be peeved to know there won’t be a North American Ford Fusion Wagon to match. Expect most of what’s on offer in the Mondeo hatch to be available in the Estate, just with more lugging room.
Ford are also making a 4WD platform available with a diesel engine option and there’s clever stuff like inflatable rear seat belts. retractable panoramic roof and adaptive full LED headlamps.
More details will keep arriving (it’s Ford’s way) and we’ll update again when there’s more.
