Which used Ford Mondeo estate should I buy?
Of the petrol-engined Ford Mondeos, the most sensible choice is the turbocharged 1.6 Ecoboost from 2010 onwards. The others are either underpowered or will cost a disproportionate amount to run compared with the value of the car.
Of the diesels, it’s the 2.0 TDCi that provides the best blend of power and parsimony, and there are plenty to choose from.
Zetec, meanwhile, is the trim of choice, with features such as alloy wheels, climate control and a heated windscreen being enough to impress. Titanium and Titanium X versions are better equipped and widely available, but remember how steeply the Mondeo Estate will continue to depreciate before paying too much for such luxuries, particularly if you’re looking at a later model.
