For You could get lost in the boot, it's so big. The Mondeo Estate is accomplished to drive, refinement is good, and the diesel engines are strong and economical.

Against Many rivals have better resale values. Some might find the sheer size of the Mondeo daunting and there's some road noise on coarse surfaces.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

With so many Mondeos likely to be bought with company money and pounded up and down the country's motorway network, good fuel consumption and low company car tax liability are vital. That means we prefer the punchy and economical diesel-powered versions.

The 113bhp 1.6 diesel engine is just about man enough for the job of hauling the huge Mondeo around, and it gives stunning economy. However, most people will prefer the extra pulling power of the 138bhp 2.0 diesel, which itself is impressively efficient, and suits the car perfectly. By comparison, the smaller petrol engines seem to struggle to shift the car.

Trim-wise, you're best off sticking with lower trims, such as Zetec or Edge, which give you all the most important bits of kit as standard.
