Interior Styling

New Ford Mondeo's 'kinetic design' exterior language has also been carried through to the spacious interior which has been fashioned to carry a similar sense of style and premium levels of quality.

It is not a case of style over function though, as all details of the interior have been designed specifically to combine their individual elements of quality and refinement to enhance the overall sense of comfort when travelling in the new Ford Mondeo.

"For the new Ford Mondeo we have improved the overall quality of the interior. The proportions are more sympathetic and it is more inviting," said Nikolaus Vidakovic, Chief Interior Designer. "When you open the door you see a flow, an elegance. This is much more welcoming and harmonious than using heavy, harsh shapes."

Vidakovic and his team worked closely with Ford's interior craftsmanship specialists on the fit and finish of all interior components. The results can be seen throughout, and is exemplified by a reduced gap on the steering wheel boss.

"Usually, when you open a car door to get in, one of the first things you see is a gap underneath the airbag housing," said Nikolaus Vidakovic. "We have removed this gap on the new Ford Mondeo. We felt it wouldn't be doing the new car justice in terms of craftsmanship if this detail wasn't addressed."
