Update - Ford revealed the first details of the all-new Mondeo back in 2013, and although it has been in the pipeline for a long time, we now know that volume production will begin in October 2014!
The all-new Mondeo is highly anticipated, bringing the new Ford design and family face to the popular saloon model, along with a new range of engines and technology. You will be able to order very soon so stay tuned for further information.
Whilst the overall shape of the new Ford Mondeo is similar to the current model Mondeo, it is a few centimeters lower and has a sleeker profile as a result.
There are slimmer roof pillars and the bodywork has a smooth, streamlined finish. 19-inch wheels give the car a sporty presence and the new grille and headlamp arrangement takes inspiration from the new Fiesta and signals a new evolution for Ford's Kinetic design language. Sparkling LED tail-lamps and polished exhausts also add a touch of class to the rear of the car.
The interior of the all-new Ford Mondeo is more spacious than its predecessor, with new seats, a higher centre console, more storage and extra passenger space. Ford is also promising improvements in quality with interior surfaces that are softer to the touch.
The new Ford Mondeo will be available with the usual diesel and petrol engines plus there will be a hybrid and even plug-in hybrid versions available. The petrol line-up will include the impressive 1.0-litre, 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre EcoBoost units, available as manual or with Ford's latest PowerShift automatic gearbox.
The Mondeo Hybrid will be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and can run on purely electric power up to 62mph. Meanwhile, Ford says that the plug-in Mondeo Hybrid will be the most fuel efficient family hatchback in the world with economy more than 100mpg. Both hybrid versions are fitted with active noise control which uses the audio system to block out road noise while 'enhancing' engine sound.
The new 2014 Ford Mondeo will come with a host of improved and new technologies, including the latest version of Ford SYNC with MyFord Touch - the in-car entertainment system offering voice control for all major functions.
Other new features in the forthcoming Mondeo will include driver-assist systems, such as a lane-keeping aid and fatigue detection, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning and active park assist.
Safety is also enhanced by inflatable rear seat belts.
A Mondeo Estate will also be offered, but as the release date of the hatchback has been pushed back, it is not expected until 2015. There will also be an upmarket and bespoke Ford Mondeo Vignale version, which aims to compete with the more expensive small saloon cars like the BMW 3 Series. This model is expected to be much more expensive.
