The striking Mondeo is certainly dramatic to look at, although the Kinetic Design styling that has attracted so much attention isnt as cutting-edge in reality as wed expected. Overall, we think it comes across as slightly fussy. Ford has gone overboard on the detailing, resulting in a car that looks as if its wearing too much make-up. But the main thing that will strike people when they first see the Mondeo is the size. Its huge wider and taller than a BMW 5-Series, and only 60mm shorter. It still competes against familiar rivals, such as the Vauxhall Vectra, Renault Laguna, Honda Accord, Volkswagen Passat and Peugeot 407, though it is premium models like the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 and Saab 9-3 that are arguably this cars fiercest rivals. Ford will be hoping a vast choice of engines, three bodystyles and four trims will swing the balance: the line-up consists of nearly 100 unique models!
