The newest incarnation of the Ford Mondeo which has only been on sale for a few months has been named What Car?’s “Best family car” for 2011. At the awards it also collected “Best Estate” for 2011. To keep the Mondeo up to date and fresh, Ford gave it a facelift inside and out.
The awards were specifically awarded to the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140PS Zetec, the model’s fuel economy, CO2 levels, refinement levels and looks contributed in it getting the double accolade. The new Mondeo boasts refreshed external highlights, heightened interior craftsmanship and hi-tech features in the cabin.
Steve Fowler, What Car? editor-in-chief, said: "The latest Mondeo is simply a brilliant car - and now even better value. It does everything brilliantly and nothing badly - whether you choose the hatch or estate you'll be getting a spacious, high quality, affordable car that's more fun to drive than you'd expect a family car to be."
Nigel Sharp, Ford Britain managing director, said: "Ford's newest Mondeo has an exterior look and standard of interior well suited to the executive car park. For 2011 we've added power-trains ideal for the low carbon needs of our customers."
