- Only five trim levels available, including new ST-Line Edition and Titanium Edition
- Satellite navigation, autonomous braking, front and rear parking sensors standard across the range
- Price reductions across range, with first deliveries in November
Simplified Ford Mondeo range announced
With the number of trim levels cut from seven to five and new, lower prices, the Mondeo looks a more attractive proposition to families and company users alike.
The previous Mondeo range included seven trim levels, but that will be simplified to five. The new Zetec Edition becomes the cheapest version, costing £19,445.
Above that model, buyers can choose to prioritise sport or luxury. The existing ST-Line and new ST-Line Edition cater to those who want a car with a sporty look and feel, while the new Titanium Edition and range-topping Vignale are more luxurious.
The new Titanium Edition comes with leather heated and electrically adjustable seats, while Vignale models have the Nero appearance pack (19-inch alloys and darkened fog lamp bezels, lower grille and side strips) as standard, that was introduced at the beginning of this year.
At the same time, Ford has cut prices across the range: by £3,000 on Vignale models, £2,500 on Zetec and ST-Line Editions, and £2,000 on Titanium Edition. The result, Ford says, are better rates of BIK tax for company car users and attractive lease rates.
The revised range – which rivals the Vauxhall Insignia, Volkswagen Passat and Peugeot 508 – can be ordered from next month, with first deliveries due to start in November.
