Ford Mondeo Hatchback
  • 1. The 2.0-litre diesel is the one most suited to the Mondeo, with ample performance that's delivered in a refined and quiet manner.
  • 2. The Mondeo is spacious inside, with ample head- and legroom for everyone, and it's solid and well put together.
  • 3. The keyless entry and ignition system on certain models can stop working, stranding owners or locking them out of their cars.
  • 4. Fuel consumption is between 53.3mpg and 45.6mpg for the diesels and 39.2mpg to 30.4 for the petrols.
  • 5. The hatchback Mondeo is supremely practical, too, with a very large boot and split-folding rear seats.
