New 2022 Ford Mondeo replacement spotted: price, specs and release date

June 01, 2021 by

A new Ford Mondeo is on the way – and this new crossover SUV is set to look unlike any Mondeo that’s come before. Read on for everything you need to know about Ford’s radically overhauled family car.

  • Ford Mondeo replacement seen in spy shots
  • Similar design to Chinese-only Ford Evos
  • Sweeping roofline clear from test vehicle
  • SUV-like styling elements likely to appear
  • Hi-tech interior with large display screens
  • No info on price or release date yet
  • Expect more details soon

The Ford Mondeo is no more, but if you’re a fan of large family cars, you could be in luck – spy photographers have snapped a replacement undergoing testing on an airfield.

No official details about the car have been released yet, but it looks very similar to a model that was just revealed for the Chinese market called the Ford Evos. It’s possible that this new model is either closely related to the Evos or just takes styling cues from it.

The Evos isn’t currently planned for Europe or America – but it’s possible that with a new name and a few design changes it could form the basis of a replacement for the Mondeo.

2022 Ford Mondeo design

These latest spy shots show a new Ford in testing that has similar-looking headlights to the Evos.

It also appears as though this new model will share the Evos’ sweeping roofline and automatically-retracting door handles.

Some details appear to be different, including the rear arches and the height of the bonnet – indicating that this is a new model that uses elements of the Evos design and not simply a European version of the same car.

2021 Ford Mondeo engines

There are no details on what engines the Evos will have, so it isn’t clear what engines might be available on the Mondeo replacement either. The test car clearly has an exhaust pipe, so Ford is testing petrol, diesel or hybrid versions. It’s likely that the majority of the new car’s engines will come with some form of mild-hybrid system to help boost fuel economy and kerb emissions.

Ford also promised autonomous driving tech on the Evos, which could come to the Mondeo replacement as well, and connected technology that allows the car to talk to the world around it – though this tech isn’t being implemented as quickly in the West as it is in China.

This is the China-only Evos’ interior, which will likely inspire the Mondeo replacement

There are no spy shots of the Mondeo replacement’s interior, but you can use the Evos as a guide to how it might look. The China-only model’s cabin has an astonishing 27-inch display screen covering virtually the entire dashboard, with only a few buttons and plenty smart-looking materials.

There’s a large centre console with a gear selector and some storage space, and pictures show that contrasting orange accents are found throughout the cabin – something you could see on high-spec models.

2021 Ford Mondeo price and release date

Ford has hinted at a Mondeo-SUV crossover in the past with a concept car, but this is the first sign of it actually appearing. The Evos was announced recently at the Shanghai Motor Show, but there’s no official info on the version that could arrive in the UK yet.

Expect to hear more about the car later in 2021, whether that’s an official announcement or simply more photos of the test car. In terms of price, it’ll likely cost more than the Mondeo did (which was from about £25,000) but how much more isn’t clear yet.
