The cheaper diesel versions stack up well financially, because they undercut most rivals on price and emit less CO2, making them among the cheapest company cars in the class.
Provided you go for Zetec trim, the eco-special Econetic versions of the 2.0 TDCi 150 are well priced compared with other family cars, too. They cost more than the 1.6 Mondeos to run as a company car or to buy privately (it’s real-world True MPG result of 45.1mpg is nothing special, for example), although some buyers will see the hike in costs worthwhile for the engine’s extra performance.
The non-Econetic 2.0 TDCi 150 is fractionally cheaper to buy than the Econetic version, but it isn’t available in the lower-end trim levels, so isn’t as recommendable.
Big discounts are widely available across all Mondeo models, and Ford finance deals are typically competitive, so those looking for a low monthly payment should be able to negotiate a deal quite easily.
Resale values are relatively poor, especially for the petrol models, although servicing and insurance costs are good. Ford also offers a fixed-price servicing deal that covers the cost of services for up to three years, and you can even spread the cost out into small monthly payments.
