2015 - 2018

The first generation of the Mondeo is over 20 years old and its offspring was at its fourth generation in 2015. And it was, finally, a world car. Ford tried to do a car that could sell well on both sides of the Atlantic. It tried with the Mondeo in 1994 with Mondeo in Europe and Countour/Mercury Mystique in the U.S. But it wasn't a hit. But it worked its way through and in 2015 the fourth generation seemed to do well. The secret was to install adequate engines on each continent. But the shape was good, with sort of aggressive lines and three body styles: sedan, hatchback and station ...

2007 - 2015

After a brief appearance in the James Bond Casino Royale movie in 2006, Ford unveiled the fourth generation of the Mondeo in the following year. Ford built the Mondeo on the same platform as the Mazda 6/Atenza, and it was not available in the U.S., like the first generation where the Contour model filled that segment. The vehicle was available as a four-door sedan, five-door hatchback, and a station-wagon. It was shown as a static display in late 2006 with the official launch in 2007. Featuring a new design language, named kinetic-design, the Mondeo represented Ford's biggest car ...

2005 - 2007

The second generation of the Mondeo went through two mild facelifts instead of a major one. In 2005 it was the last one, before the third generation which Ford launched in 2007. Ford didn't want to lose the momentum gained by its mid-size sedan on several markets, even though there were some countries where Volkswagen was miles ahead of it with the Passat range. In the three-box sedan version, the Mondeo was one of the favorite vehicles for fleets. The Mondeo's second generation was a hit with its triangular headlights swept over the hood and the slim curved trapezoidal grill...

2003 - 2005

Ford introduced the first facelift for the second generation of the Mondeo in 2003, after just two years and a half from its launch, in November 2000. While it was still a market leader in some countries, the Mondeo MKII received an update in the summer of 2003. The carmaker introduced new features and a few changes to the interior. The change was not necessary for the drivetrain since the following pollution norms were introduced in 2005 when Ford launched the second facelift for a car that lasted only seven years on the market. From the outside, the only noticeable change was for the...

2000 - 2003

Ford introduced the second generation of the Mondeo in 2000, and it was striking with its New-Edge design language that brought a more dynamic look for the medium-sized sedan. The carmaker changed the Mondeo lineup with a larger, more comfortable vehicle and offered it in three body shapes: four-door sedan, five-door hatchback and station wagon. The sedan was considered a very good middle-management vehicle. Its wide range of options and features transformed it into the main weapon against the Volkswagen Passat, but eventually, the blue-oval brand had to admit that it lost the battle agai...

1993 - 1996

The Mondeo was designed as a world car. A stylish, yet practical 4-door vehicle. For this model, Ford focused on safety and handling. The car was equipped with seat-belt pretensioners, ABS, and for the more advanced trim level, the Ghia had traction control available, a system which removes unwanted wheel speed. The interior noise was reduced, as the car had a perfect balance between noise, vibration and harshness. Even the door mirrors were created in such a way not to create interior noise, aside from their efficiency and style. The car was created as a front wheel drive and was equipped ...
