Ford Mondeo Overview
The Ford Mondeo is part of the American manufacturer Ford Motor Company. This vehicle comes under the class of a large family car and has been on the market for almost 20 years now. The Mondeo is known for its reliability and spacious cabin. It is a large car and can appear a bit daunting at first, but when you get behind the wheel you begin to feel more at ease as it drives so well and radiates an air of confidence in the vehicle.
Ford Mondeo History
This vehicle was brought in to replace the Sierra in 1993 for European models. The first generation Mk1 (1993-96) was created in a hatchback, estate and saloon. The main difference from the Sierra to the Mondeo was that the Sierra was rear wheel drive and the Mondeo was front wheel drive. This was a totally revolutionary design, as it took nothing from the Sierra and was the most expensive design program of any new car by the Ford Company.
The second generation Mk2 (1996-2000) was seen as an upgrade to the Mk1, sorting out the original design flaws associated with the Mk1. The style was seen as being pretty plain, problems with the headlights as well as other things. The outer body took a bit of a change over and the interior was altered slightly. Some of the engines were changed in this version of the Mondeo.
The third generation Mk3 (2000-07) was slightly larger than its predecessor and fixed a couple of issues, such as: more leg room in the rear and sorted its diesel engine by upgrading to the duratorq diesel engine. The same suspension system which made this vehicle the best handling in its class was obviously carried over. The new materials used to design the body panels gave it a new look and added strength. It was the most popular car of its class in the UK.
The fourth generation Mk4 (2007-13) is the version currently in use and has a much more modern look to it than its predecessors due to the Ford kinetic design. It went through some changes to the engines, the interior and the exterior.
The Mk 5 is to be introduced in 2013.

The engine sizes vary from 1.6-2.5L in both petrol and diesel. For its class the Mondeo is one of the most economical vehicles and gets good mpg (miles per gallon) compared to some of its competitors. Taking into consideration the size of engine and type of fuel will determine the economical rating of the vehicle. Overall this is a pretty economical vehicle.
