Ford adds sporty ST-Line models to its Mondeo line-up

The Mondeo is a fine family car in both five-door hatchback and estate forms, but now buyers can also choose a version inspired by the company's 'hot' ST models

First published: 23rd June 2016
  • ST-Line trim features sporty look inside and out, plus sports suspension
  • Available in hatchback and estate bodies, but only with high-power diesel engines
  • Prices to be confirmed soon, with first deliveries expected in September
Ford has revealed ST-Line versions of its Mondeo family car. These are not only the sportiest versions in the current line-up, but said by the company to be the sportiest Mondeo since the ST220 model was introduced almost 15 years ago.

That means the Mondeo is the third of Ford’s models to be available in this trim, and it will be sold alongside ST-Line versions of the Focus and Fiesta, which are aimed at buyers who want the sporty image of the ST hot hatches, but don’t want the full performance of the ST engines.

Where the Mondeo differs is that there is no ST version in the range for buyers to aspire to. Nevertheless, the new models will expand the appeal of the Mondeo, with ST-Line effectively a rival for the likes of the R Line trim in the Volkswagen Passat line-up.

The new trim is available with both hatchback and estate bodies, but only with higher-powered engines from the range – the 148- and 178bhp versions of the 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine – while four-wheel drive is optional.

ST-Line models stand out from other Mondeos thanks to their unique look, which includes honeycomb upper and lower front grilles, and rectangular foglights; the sculpted side skirts are finished in body colour; the rear bumper incorporates a black insert; and, there’s a choice of two styles of alloy wheel.

The car also sits 10mm lower on its sports suspension, while Inside, customers will also be getting sports seats with red stitching, a perforated leather steering wheel, black door appliques and ST-Line scuff plates.

Although the prices of the new model are yet to be confirmed, Ford promises that an announcement on them is due imminently, with first deliveries expected in September.
