With a sleek and almost four-door coupe-esque silhouette, this is the new Ford Mondeo saloon, a body style dropped mid-way through the life cycle of the previous generation due to dwindling sales. Unless large family cars have a premium badge, it seems saloons just lack appeal to British buyers: Vauxhall sells few four-door Insignias and Volkswagen Passat saloons are outsold by the estate here too.

Equipment

On sale from the end of 2014, the Ford Mondeo saloon hybrid is only available in range-topping Titanium and Titanium X Pack specifications.

Standard Ford Mondeo saloon equipment

Choose the highly-specified Titanium trim and you’ll be buying a very well-equipped car, with a specification boasting the Sync2 infotainment system with sat-nav, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, electric windows and power-folding door mirrors, cruise control, an electric parking brake with hill hold function, a starter button, automatic lights and wipers, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, an automatically-dimming rear view mirror and unique to the hybrid-design of digital and analogue instruments.

If you require an even more comprehensive array of equipment you’ll have to go one rung higher and opt for the Titamium X Pack. In addition to the Titanium’s specification you’ll also find adaptive LED headlamps with cornering function, leather upholstery, 10-direction, electrically adjustable and heated front seats with memory function on the driver’s side, keyless entry and privacy glass to the rear side windows and rear screen.

One surprising omission is that on neither version are parking sensors fitted as standard, making the Mondeo saloon difficult to position and manoeuvre especially in tight parking spaces.

Optional Ford Mondeo saloon accessories

Thankfully, among the wide-range of options available for the Mondeo hybrid, parking sensors are on the list, and can be complemented by both a reversing camera and a self-parking function, capable of both ‘bay’ and parallel varieties.

No body kit is available on the hybrid Mondeo but you can opt for the adaptive LED headlights on the Titanium version, which shine light in the direction of the corner and also incorporate LED day running lights and pulsating front indicators.

Although the Mondeo saloon has dual-zone climate control as standard, an electrically-opening sunroof is also available, while rear privacy glass and retractable sun blinds on the doors can also be fitted at extra cost.

What’s more, there’s a Winter Pack available comprising of a heated steering wheel and heated front seats, great for easing chills on wintry journeys, an upgraded Sony sat-nav and stereo system, an electrically adjustable steering column plus a raft of safety kit including emergency city braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning and the headline-grabbing inflatable rear seat belts.
