Ford took to the Brussels Motor Show to reveal a facelifted Ford Mondeo car for 2019. A new hybrid estate model joins the range, whilst the Mondeo also gets new diesel engines and a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Cars & Vans Direct reveal all!
A facelifted Ford Mondeo has been revealed at the Brussels Motor Show, with the excellent saloon car getting a new design, new diesel engine options, additional driver assistance features and the addition of a hybrid estate model. The redesign is subtle rather than a complete overhaul, with Ford claiming that there is now a greater visual difference between the numerous trim levels of the Mondeo.
Every model in the range receives a new grille, with the Ford Mondeo Titanium model getting horizontal chrome slats, the ST-Line model gets a black finish, whilst Vignale models receive the ‘flying-V’ grille applied on other Ford Vignale models.
Elsewhere in the Ford Mondeo range, the bottom grille of the car has been tweaked and is now placed between new fog lights in a more aggressive appearing front bumper which has been revised. At the back of the car, the taillights have been altered and are intersected by a new chrome of satin silver strip covering the entire width of the tailgate.
The options list of the Ford Mondeo includes alloy wheels and new exterior colour options, whilst new interior trims also appear. Automatic models have been updated to feature the new rotary gear selector from the latest Ford Focus, making more space in the centre console and allowing Ford to equip a new USB port. The brand also claims that the fit and finish of the interior of the car has also been improved.
The new gear selector from the Focus becomes part of the range because the new Ford Mondeo has taken on Ford’s latest eight-speed automatic gearbox. This has also allowed the brand to equip the new Mondeo with a new adaptive cruise control system with the ability to complete stop and go.
An updated speed limiter function which works with the traffic sign recognition is also new. The Intelligent Speed Limiter means that the car’s maximum speed is altered automatically when the limiter is activated in line with changing speed limits. The car only decelerates however, meaning the driver must accelerate back up to speed when the limit increases again.
The facelifted Ford Mondeo gets a new diesel engine in the guise of the brand’s EcoBlue 2.0-litre engine which is offered with 148ps and 187ps. This engine replaces the older 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine in the range, with the new model claimed greater efficiency and CO2 figures of 127g/km and 133g/km for the 148ps and 187ps models respectively. Either diesel engine can be hooked to an all-wheel drive system, while a 163ps 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine remains available.
Ford have expanded their hybrid offering in the Mondeo range, with the addition of an electrified Ford Mondeo Estate car joining the line-up. The car is powered by the same 2.0-litre petrol engine and electric motor combination found on the Ford Mondeo saloon hybrid, delivering a maximum output of 184ps and allowing electric only running over very short distances. Ford have revealed that the software behind the system has been recalibrated, making the powertrain more efficient and smoother than previously
