Ford Mondeo 1.5 Turbo Ecoboost Titanium 5Dr Review
Mondeo Martin

Introduction, exterior

We test an Aston Martin – lookalike.

Why Ford has gone down Aston Martin’s design route is probably not a huge mystery, considering Aston makes some of the best looking cars in the world. Also Ford owns a little bit of Aston Martin and supplies their 5.9l V12, so there.

While it doesn’t look anything near as beautiful as Ian Callum’s pieces of automotive art, the new Ford Mondeo isn’t what you might describe as ugly. Sedate and understated yes, but it’s certainly not bad looking by any measure.

The car is well proportioned, has up to date adaptive LED headlamps and moving turn signal indicators. Up front, the bonnet is sculpted with bulges and flowing lines that culminate in that Aston Martin-esque nose which gives the Mondeo a certain sense of poise and elegance.

Come around to the back and you’ll see that the tail lights are also in keeping with the current trend of LED offerings that every manufacturer tries to create a unique identity with. The slightly out of place looking rear wiper can be done away with if you opt for the 4-door version, which also saves you a good five grand assuming you don’t need the ginormous boot space of the 5-door we that have here.

I like the service provided. It's a one stop service center. Received follow up after receiving the highest quote. No unneccessary haggling from professional dealers.
