Ford Mondeo 2017
The Mondeo 2017 will look very attractive. The front bumper has been improved. The model will also feature the new grille. The modern generation of the car, which has been on sale since 2015, is a rival to the likes of the Vauxhall Insignia, Volkswagen Passat, and the Mazda 6.
The Price of New Ford Mondeo is Rs 15.0 Lakh.
There is a lot of engines to choose from in new Ford Mondeo, too.
Diesel engines form the core of the range, with three 2.0-litres as well as the 1.5-litre available. The 1.5-litre diesel is an economy champion, with CO2 emissions of the 94g/km, but even the 2.0-litre diesel won’t emit much more.
There are 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0-litre engines from which to choose.
- The 1.0-litre engine, which is fitted to the Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta. It offers 123bhp and emits 119g/km of CO2 for a £30 annual road tax bill when it goes on sale in early 2015.
- The 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine will offer 158bhp and have CO2 emissions of 134g/km.
- The 148bhp and 178bhp versions of a 2.0-litre diesel engine will be available. Either in front-wheel drive or, in a first for the Ford Mondeo, four-wheel drive.
Ford Mondeo Hybrid
The first time Mondeo will also be available as a hybrid. This version will be sold as a four-door saloon only and will have emissions low enough to spare it from road tax.
The Mondeo Hybrid use a 2.0-litre petrol engine and two electric motors one to drive the wheels and other to recharge the battery. The lithium-ion batteries are anticipated to last for the 10 years or 150,000 miles. The engine and motors will work in connection with a CVT automatic gearbox.
Improved quality is crucial to boosting the upmarket appeal of the new Ford Mondeo, and this is something also being chased by the new VW Passat and the facelifted new Peugeot 508. It comes in the form of a classy new chrome grille but also in the shape of improved interior quality.
The Interior road noise has been reduced by three decibels in the rear and two decibels in the front, whereas the rear windows are made of thicker glass to reduce a wind noise.
The most affective air-conditioning system is capable of reducing cabin temperature from 55 degrees centigrade to 18 degrees centigrade in 15 minutes. New equipment covers a power-adjustable, memory-equipped steering column, a power tailgate and a heated steering wheel, plus heated and cooled front seats with the massage function.
Another new features in Ford SYNC 2 voice-recognition system, in which it operated via an eight-inch touchscreen and acts on voice commands or read incoming text messages. The Mondeo also has Ford MyKey a key that lets you limit the car’s top speed and maximum stereo volume when it is being driven by a younger or less experienced driver.
Safety and Technology
Ford Mondeo new safety features include the latest autonomous braking system, which can detect pedestrians and can decrease the severity of (or completely avoid) a collision at speeds of up to 50mph. The system can recognize people walking on the road ahead, or about to enter the car’s path, using cameras mounted on the windscreen. If it detects an imminent collision, audible warning sounds and the brakes are primed for action. If the warnings are ignored, the car uses the brakes independently.
You also get Active City Stop, which can apply the brakes when it detects an immediate collision speeds of up to 25mph. The Pre-Collision Assist use a radar and cameras to scan up to 200m ahead and apply the full force of the brakes if needed.
The first time, Mondeo will be available with inflatable rear seat belts that can keep the passenger tightly strapped in a case of an accident. The new system is backed up with nine airbags.
Other safety features on the new Mondeo include Adaptive Cruise Control and a lane-keeping assistance. Traffic sign recognition, which displays roadside information on the dashboard.
LED headlamps that can be used on the full beam without dimming other road users, and automatic parking system that parallel park and reverse into alcoves by itself, complete the new Mondeo substantial list of safety features.
