Ford Mondeo: The Best Family Car

The Ford motor Company manufactures this large family car since 1992. A Latin word mundus meaning “world” gave name to the car. The first generation of the Mondeo came as a “world car”. This came along with the North American cars, and until 2000, they were promoted as Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique. Moreover, from 2013 and so on it is the Ford Fusion.

Ford Fusion or the fifth-generation Mondeo was divulged at the North American International Auto Show in 2012.

More Information

The creative team is based in Detroit and is responsible for the scheduling and global start phase. European Ford Evos concept that had commenced in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the style checker for the new models. Even the last phase of Ford Mondeo and American Ford Fusion adds to the list. Focus and the Fiesta have new designs and the new Mondeo shares a common platform with Fusion. They will be now sold in U.S. This range replaces V6 3.0 engine and will give a compact range of Ford EcoBoost engines. Come autumn 2013 and Ford would have an addition of a 3-cylinder 123 bhpEcoboost.

The claim

The claim is that it produces presently 125g/km of CO2 emissions. A plug-in hybrid badge as an Energi will be the new inclusion in 2014/2015. It would be motorized by a lithium- ion battery pack 185 bhp Atkinson cycle 2.0-litre petrol engine. The product details and the delayed launch (early summer-late autumn-2013) was confirmed in the year 2012 at the Paris Motor Show. This was to take care of the quality related concerns that erupted with the ramped production of the fouth generation Mondeo.
