What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Rewarding drive, delightfully practical, keen prices

Against Engines lack refinement; car lacks a hard image

Verdict Compelling combination of driving pleasure, practicality and affordability

Go for… 1.8-litre LX

Avoid… V6 petrols

Ford Mondeo Hatchback
  • 1. Warranty Direct tell us that the axles and suspension are among the biggest source of problems
  • 2. The brakes can also give problems, so insist on a good test drive to check them out
  • 3. The best all-round engine is the 1.8 petrol - avoid the noisy 1.8TD and thirsty V6 petrol
  • 4. Hatchback offers excellent practicality - the boot is large and access is very good
  • 5. There's enough space in the back for three people to sit abreast comfortably
