Deal of the Day: Ford Mondeo
Save almost £4000 on a Ford Mondeo 2.0 EcoBoost Titanium with today's deal...
For many years, the Ford Mondeo was the default family car. It's spacious, good to drive, and thanks to competitive pricing, it doesn't cost a lot to buy or own. In fact, it's one of the cheaper options in this class, and with today's deal you can get almost £4000 off the list price of a high spec Titanium version.
The 2.0 Ecoboost petrol engine offered here is one of the most powerful options available. We'd usually recommend sticking with the lesser 1.5-litre petrol, but with 236bhp on offer, this Mondeo is also a good choice.
Ride and handling are exemplary; it's far more entertaining to drive than you'd expect from a large, sensible hatchback. The steering could use a little more weight and feedback, though.
Titanium specification gets you plenty of luxuries inside, including sports seats, automatic lights and wipers and front and rear parking sensors.
If the Mondeo feels like a big car, that’s because it is. It’s not the easiest car to judge when squeezing round a tight multi-storey car park, and the problem is only made worse by the meagre steering feedback.
Some of the switchgear feels cheaper than it ought to, but the sizable saving on its price should be enough to soften niggles.
Resale values for the Mondeo are also generally poor, although servicing and insurance costs are pretty good.
Should I add any options?
The Mondeo’s size means that the £545 active park assist pack is more of a necessity than a convenience, so is well worth choosing.
What are its rivals like?
Rivals for the Mondeo include the Mazda 6, Volkswagen Passat and Volvo S60. The Passat is one of the stars of this class, because it's practical and luxurious inside, while the Volvo and Mazda are also generally well regarded.
