For The Ford Mondeo is hugely spacious, superb to drive and impressively refined. The diesel and turbocharged petrol engines are strong and smooth.

Against Many rivals are cheaper to run and have plusher interiors. There's too much road noise on coarse surfaces and some might find the sheer size of the Mondeo daunting.

The Ford Mondeo is a good family car. It's great to drive and has loads of space, but newer rivals are better all-rounders.

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.
