Target Price team says:
Considering that so many Mondeos will be bought with company money, low company car tax rates and good fuel economy are vital. That’s why the 118bhp 1.5 and the 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel models make the most financial sense. The 177bhp 2.0-litre diesel is best avoided, especially given that it’s available only in pricey Titanium trim.
Talking of trim levels, we think you’re best off sticking with Style or Zetec, which are good value but still come with plenty of equipment. However, Titanium could be justifiable if you’re considering the Mondeo as a budget alternative to a premium-badged rival.
