If ever a car was stuck between a rock and a hard place, then it has to be the Ford Mondeo Estate.

On the one hand, it has to persuade mums and dads to abandon their predilection for family-sized SUVs; on the other, it has to convince savvy user-choosers that it’s a better financial bet than similarly priced estate cars with more prestigious badges. But that’s not to say Ford’s big wagon isn’t up for the fight.

Despite its mass, the Mondeo Estate never feels unwieldy, so it’s one of the sweetest-driving motors you can get your hands on. Meanwhile, because its interior is so accommodating, it’s capable of transporting five grown-ups in fine style over vast distances.

Its enormous cargo bay will easily swallow the family’s holiday luggage, and if you order the optional dog guard, Fido will feel like he’s won the lottery and moved into the presidential suite at the Ritz.

All this space is complemented by a strong range of engines and a selection of trim levels, too.

Over the next few pages, we'll look at everything about the Mondeo, from how it drives to what it’s like inside to how much it’ll cost to run. Of course, we’ll also tell you how it compares with key rivals including the estate versions of the Volkswagen Passat, Skoda Superb and Vauxhall Insignia.

And if the Mondeo Estate is the one for you, head over to our New Car Buying page – you could get a hefty discount without haggling.
