For The Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140 Edge has plenty of grunt. It’s smooth, too, and manages more than 53mpg. Entry-level Edge trim is surprisingly well kitted out.
Against The 2.0 TDCi makes itself heard under hard acceleration, and those doing low miles are better off going for a significantly cheaper petrol version.
Well worth the extra over the less powerful diesel, the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140 Edge is the best Mondeo for those doing the mileage to warrant a diesel.
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 rates are vital, so we prefer the punchy and frugal diesel-powered versions.
The pick of the range is the 1.6 TDCi 115, which feels perfectly suited to the car. It's hugely efficient, too, so much so that it's our current Green Family Car of the Year. By comparison, the 1.6-litre non-turbo petrol engine occasionally struggles to shift the car.
Trim-wise, you're best off sticking with lower trims, such as Zetec or Edge, which give you all the important bits of kit as standard.
