Ford is updating its established Mondeo line-up with new sports and luxury models; the line-up is downsized from seven to five variants. The new Ford Mondeo Zetec Edition becomes the entry level variant.
From Zetec edition, Mondeo buyers have the choice of either prioritizing the sporty specification of the existing ST-Line and new ST-Line Edition, or the luxury credentials of the new Titanium Edition model and range-topping Vignale.
Vignale is the pinnacle of Ford in Europe blending contemporary design, craftsmanship; advanced technologies and exclusive specifications with an upscale product and ownership experience.
Hand-finished by master craftspeople and tailored to customer specification, Vignale models offer timeless elegance, inspired by visionary vehicle coachbuilder Alfredo Vignale.
Featuring tuxedo-stitched quilted leather interior, superior refinement with Ford Active Noise Cancellation, unique wheels and metallic paint finishes, Vignale is infused with Ford design DNA, influenced by the worlds of architecture, furniture and fashion trends.
Vignale customers also enjoy a range of personalized services tailored to their needs for the lifetime of their vehicle ownership, supported by a Vignale relationship manager. The Vignale Collection portfolio created by Ford Vignale designers is inspired by the distinctive craftsmanship and materials found in Ford Vignale models.
All five Ford Mondeo variants have navigation, DAB, autonomous braking to mitigate or avoid low-speed collisions at under 31 mph, front/rear parking sensors and cruise control with speed limiter as standard. ST-Line series introduce extras including front, rear and side body styling, lowered sports suspension, Ford Power start button and darkened headliner. Privacy glass and 19in rock metallic alloy wheels are added on the ST-Line edition.
The new Titanium edition, which includes a hybrid petrol engine with 92g CO2 among its powertrains, boasts premium leather heated seats, with front 10-way power adjustment. Since launch in Mondeo in 2015, Vignale has grown to represent 13 per cent of orders. At the start of this year a Vignale Nero appearance pack was introduced, comprising 19in dark tarnish alloys and darkened fog lamp bezels, lower grille and side strips, and now becomes standard Mondeo Vignale specification.
The Ford Mondeo has a starting price of 19,445 pounds in the U,K. and deliveries are set to begin from November.
