Performance and Efficiency

The new Ford Mondeo features powerful and efficient engines, and a range of intelligent technologies. The result: exhilarating performance and precise handling. Choose from a Hybrid powertrain, advanced petrol or diesel, all of which deliver the power you want, and the efficiency you need. In fact, the combination of smart design and advanced engineering means excellent economy and low CO2 emissions, whichever powertrain you choose.

Re-charge your battery more efficiently

Unlike traditional systems, Regenerative Braking only charges the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.

Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).

Better aerodynamics for improved economy

When you’re driving slowly, the Active Grille Shutter system keeps the grille vent open to cool the engine. When you pick up speed it can automatically close, improving aerodynamics and helping to save fuel. Over time, this technology can make a big difference.

Change gears fast, with your fingertips

Normally only found on high end sports cars, Automatic Paddle Shift Controls are available with your Mondeo. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the paddle controls are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.

Manual gearboxes that match your engine

There are two 6-speed manual gearboxes available. One is fitted to the 1.5 litre EcoBoost engine. The other one is available with 2.0 litre EcoBlue engine.

EcoBoost: getting the most out of your engine

EcoBoost petrol engine uses a combination of direct fuel injection and turbo-charging, to deliver outstanding levels of performance and money-saving fuel economy. The 1.5 litre EcoBoost produces 165 PS. Euro Stage 6D Temp emissions standard.

A sophisticated and stylish Rotary Gear Shift Dial

In cars with an automatic transmission and an EcoBlue engine, the Rotary Gear Shift replaces the traditional gear lever. This puts you in control of an advanced new automatic transmission, with improved acceleration and super-smooth gear changes. It also gives the interior a much cleaner design and increases space in the cabin.
