The new Ford Mondeo HEV is available now. Combining futuristic looks, sophisticated driver assists and world-class efficiency, this model represents a significant evolution in the hatchback format.
Sitting in the interior of the new Mondeo HEV is an experience in itself. The manufacturer proudly touts this edition as "the most premium Mondeo we've ever built", and it shows. The sleek outer profile conceals a highly spacious and comfortable interior, with an airy atmosphere created by the panoramic roof. Premium materials abound, with a driver-focused instrument panel which feels at once convenient and unobtrusive.
Perhaps the best part about the Mondeo HEV's interior, however, is the offer of Ford SYNC technology with MyFord Touch. This comprehensive infotainment system allows for both voice commands and eight-inch colour touch-screen control for many of the car's main functions. It also provides WiFi hotspot functionality for up to five devices – perfect for long journeys with multiple passengers.
From the outside, it's clear that this edition of a modern classic its eye set firmly on the future. Evoking the traditional Mondeo shape, the HEV also sports razor-like LED headlamps and a hexagonal grille. The overall impression is one of poise and quiet confidence, which gives the car an aura few can hope to imitate.
The Modeo HEV comes into its own, however, when it takes to the road. It is the first vehicle in its segment to be fitted with Ford's award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, resulting in class-leading efficiency. For those who desire even more economy, a hybrid version will also be available, combining a 2.0-litre petrol unit with a 35kW lithium ion battery to both increase mileage and reduce CO2 emissions.
In terms of safety, inflatable seatbelts will be fitted to the rear seats – a European first for Ford. These innovative safety devices work to disperse crash forces in the event of a collision, ensuring a reduction in the likelihood of head, neck and chest injuries.
