The 2019 Ford Mondeo has been spotted for the second time. A mild facelift rather than an all-new model, the new Mondeo will get tweaked looks, new infotainment and new engines. Keep reading for the car’s price, specs and release date.
2019 Ford Mondeo price
The Mondeo presently starts from £19,500 (carwow can knock a quarter off that price) and you can expect the 2019 Ford Mondeo to cost about the same – food for thought when you consider a comparable VW Passat will cost you about £2,500 more. The new car will be available to buy towards the middle of next year.
2019 Ford Mondeo specs
As you can see from the pics of this prototype, don’t expect much to change in terms of the Mondeo’s styling – the fact that Ford has only bothered to camouflage the front and rear bumpers tell us that these are all that are likely to change, although those steel wheels will be swapped for alloys and you can expect to be able to choose from a couple of new wheel designs.
Changes made to the car’s interior will also be pretty limited – all that’s obvious in our pics is that the gear stick in automatic cars has now been swapped for a scroll-wheel selector. What the pictures don’t show is that the car is also likely to get an upgraded infotainment system and new tech such as a head-up display and a 360-degree camera. Unfortunately, the changes the Mondeo really needs – a radical technology overhaul and a big step up in perceived cabin quality – will have to wait for the all-new model.
What’s fine as is, however, is how the Mondeo drives – it’s remarkably good at ironing out a bumpy road while it’s accurate steering, well-weighted pedals and oily smooth manual gear change mean it is fun on a country road. That said, it is expected to get the new engines fitted to the recently launched Ford Focus – they include the 120hp four-cylinder 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel and the 182hp three-cylinder 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol.
