The interior layout, fit and finish

The Sportswagon's interior has been given some improvements, including a new steering wheel and chrome trim on the centre console. It feels more polished than the Mondeo inside, thanks largely to its nicely damped switches and pleasant mix of materials.

There’s a cracking infotainment system, too, with either a 7.0in or 8.0in touchscreen, depending on the trim you go for. Both screens are bright, while the menus are responsive and easy to navigate. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring are included as standard.
