The Mondeo is hugely spacious up front, so even the tallest of drivers should be able to get comfortable – it’s certainly much roomier than a BMW 3 series or Volvo V60 and is on a par with the VW Passat. It’s the widest cabin in its class, too, and there’s plenty of room between driver and front passenger.
The door pockets are deep and stretch back along much of the length of the door, so you could fit a 1.5-litre bottle in both, and two large fixed cupholders in the centre console are simple but effective holders even for large takeaway mugs.
A sizeable glovebox and a shallow tray in front of the gearlever are all good for small items, while a deep central cubby that houses the USB sockets makes an ideal place to store your phone or larger items. Those long doors make for good access to the front of the Mondeo, too.
