Ford Mondeo gets a new face for 2011

Ford Mondeo gets a new face for 2011

The old fave Ford Mondeo has just been reworked to give it a fresh face and some new engine options. Officially unveiled at the Moscow Auto Show the Mondeo is looking as sharp as ever.

Visually, the car’s lines are largely unchanged, but the details have been made sharper. Out front there’s a new front bumper with fashionable LEDs and a more prominent lip, there’s also  twin chrome trim surrounding the windows and a new rear bumper.

The interior sees some upgraded materials and new equipement. Interior lighting is done by LED illumination. Driver aids include a Lane Departure Warning system, Auto High Beam, Driver Alert, Smart Regenerative Charging and Active Grille Shutter, which opens and closes the grille aperture automatically to promote either cooling or greater aerodynamic efficiency.

Under the bonnet are some new engine options, including Ford’s all-new 2.0-liter, four-cylinder EcoBoost. The Ecobbost engine pumps out a very healthy 176kW of power and will be an option alongside the current 2.0-litre engine when the car is released. There’s also a reworked 2.2-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel producing 147kW.

The reworked Mondeo will go on sale as soon as next month in some global markets and should be sold with the same starting price as the current Mondeo.
