Both engines will be mated to a six speed automatic transmission.

Exterior Design Features

The elegant exterior features a lean side profile sculpted to convey visual lightness, and a sophisticated front end with Ford’s new trapezoidal grille and a power dome bonnet.

The innovative silhouette’s efficiency is made up of thin roof pillars and character lines that sweep to the rear. It is also the first Ford model to feature headlamps with LED high-beam, low beam and signal lighting. To improve ride comfort and noise reduction, the new Ford Mondeo will debut an all-new premium level integral link suspension.

Interior Design Features

The Mondeo’s functional design elements also come across in the interior which features Multi-Contour seats with Active Motion and 11 air cushions that provide side and lumbar support. The seats are also equipped with rear inflatable seat belts which combine attributes of an airbag. Added driver support includes a higher centre console.

Mondeo’s class leading exclusive technologies include the MyKey feature, auto high-beam control, Lane Keeping System, Active City Stop, Adaptive Cruise Control, Active park assist and a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).

In addition to these technologies, the Mondeo also offers the latest iteration of Ford's award-winning, industry-exclusive SYNC communications and entertainment system. SYNC with MyFord Touch allows the driver to interact with vehicle systems such as climate control, radio and CD player through voice commands, an eight-inch colour touch screen, as well as a conventional button.

"With the all-new Mondeo, quality is not just about what you can see, it's also about what you can touch and feel." said Marin Burela, president & CEO, Changan Ford Automobile.
