The Mondeo is hugely spacious up front, so even the tallest adults should be comfortable – it’s noticeably roomier than a BMW 3 Series or Volvo S60, and is on a par with a VW Passat. The cabin is particularly wide, too, so it does feel like there’s plenty of room between you and your passenger.
Access is good, thanks to the long doors and generous door openings.
The door pockets on either side are deep and wide, which means you can fit a 1.5-litre bottle on its side in each, and the two large cupholders in the centre console keep even large takeaway cups steady. There’s also a sizeable glovebox, a shallow tray in front of the gearlever that’s ideal for small items, and a deep central cubby that houses the USB sockets and an ideal place to keep your phone.
