For The 2.0 TDCi 140 diesel engine has plenty of shove. It’s smooth, too, and pretty economical. No other family car is as good to drive as the Mondeo, either.

Against The engine makes itself heard under hard acceleration, and those doing low miles are better off going for a significantly cheaper petrol version. The Zetec Business Edition doesn't cost much more, yet comes with a lot of desirable equipment as standard.

The smooth, punchy diesel engine provides strong acceleration with modest fuel bills. The Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140 Edge is a good choice for high-mileage drivers.

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 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 impressively efficient, too.

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