For The Mondeo Estate is big, comfortable, refined and good to drive. You get lots of standard equipment and the most efficient diesel versions have impressively low CO2 emissions.
Against Many rivals have plusher interiors and the boot, while big, could be more practical.
What Car? says
The Ford Mondeo Estate is a superb family car. It has loads of space inside, a smooth ride, taut body control and impressive refinement. It’s also good value and the 1.6-litre diesel version is a seriously tax-efficient choice.

Target Price team says:
With so many Mondeo Estates 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 rates are vital. That’s why the 113bhp 1.6 and the 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel models make the most sense. The 178bhp 2.0 diesel, meanwhile, is best avoided because it’s comparatively expensive to run as a company car.
We’d also recommend one of the lower-end trim levels. Go for Style or Zetec and you’ll get the important bits of kit as standard, but at a price that’s well below those of premium-badged rivals.
