What's the used Ford Mondeo saloon like?

For all its space, practicality and versatility it's the way the Mondeo drives that sets it apart from rivals. It hides its size well through an almost perfect blend of supple, well-controlled ride and crisp handling, topped off by great feel through the controls. Wind noise at speed is the only disappointment.

In terms of everyday usability, it's up with the very best. With reach and rake adjustment on the steering wheel, as well as height adjustment on the driver's seat, the driving position is spot-on for people of all shapes and sizes. And, thanks to the wide cabin and generous head- and legroom in the back, you can get five adults inside in comfort.

On all models, a split-fold rear seat and spacious boot give it top marks for practicality. However, for outright versatility, you'll be better off with a hatchback than this saloon.

Equipment levels are generous, even on the most basic models, and build quality is also excellent.
