All-New Ford Mondeo Debuts Pedestrian Detection; New Engines and Reduced Weight Deliver Enhanced Efficiency
All-new Mondeo delivers advanced Ford technology, elegant design and the sophisticated driving experience that customers have come to expect from Ford’s flagship.
Offered in five-door, wagon and four-door versions in Europe with the option of all-wheel-drive, all-new Mondeo debuts integral link rear suspension as well as Ford’s innovative inflatable rear seatbelts, massage function-equipped multi-contour seats with Active Motion and Ford’s first adaptive LED headlights in Europe to help raise the quality bar.
Mondeo delivers best-ever quality and craftsmanship for both the refined, elegant, sporty and highly expressive exterior, and the interior that features optimised ergonomics and comfort, with premium finishes and equipment.
Available in four-door and five-door body styles, and as a wagon – developed specifically for Europe – the all new Mondeo offers technologies including Ford’s adaptive LED headlamps, Inflatable Rear Seatbelts and Multi-Contour Seats; and sophisticated design.
Inside, Mondeo drivers are greeted by a digital analogue instrument cluster, while a sleek, wrap-around centre console design delivers a sporty, cockpit-like feel.
Using Ford Dynamic LED technology, the All-New Mondeo’s headlamps aren’t just striking; they’re smart. That’s because they precisely follow the road as you turn the wheel, giving you outstanding visibility. They are also able to adjust the headlamps’ lighting pattern, depending on your speed, the environment and the conditions. Eight different modes include specific settings for when you’re driving on town roads, country lanes, motorways or in adverse weather.
Stronger body with advanced materials
The all-new Ford Mondeo uses sophisticated materials and production techniques to deliver greater strength and improved safety with reduced weight and enhanced sustainability.
The all-new platform and body structure is enhanced with Electric Power Assisted Steering for the first time on Mondeo, and an optimised anti-lock braking system also helps reduce stopping distances by more than 1 metre from 100 km/h (62 mph).
Fuel-efficiency and emissions are improved across the Mondeo powertrain range by up to 14 per cent, supported by features including drag-reducing Active Grille Shutter.
Using intelligent technology, the car constantly reacts to what’s going on around it, continually responding to the road conditions, other traffic and your own driving. A host of advanced features can also make life easier.
From LED headlamps that adjust their beam pattern to the surrounding conditions to a communications system you can operate with your voice. And from one feature that takes the stress out of parking to another that helps you stay in lane. Discover more using the tabs below.
Road noise reductions of around 3 decibels in the rear and 2 decibels in the front have been achieved with integral link rear suspension and additional sound deadening material, while wind noise is reduced by 8 per cent to levels previously only experienced in the premium segment.
Ford’s new Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection can detect people in or near the road ahead, or who may cross the vehicle’s path, if the system detects a potential collision it automatically applies the brakes if the driver does not respond to warnings. The system processes information collected from a windshield-mounted camera, and radar located in the bumper, and checks it against a database of “pedestrian shapes” to help distinguish people from typical roadside scenery and objects.
Adaptive LED Headlamp Technology
All-new Mondeo introduces Ford’s adaptive LED headlamp technology to Europe; combining full-LED headlamps with Ford’s Adaptive Front Lighting System to enhance the driver’s view of surroundings.
Active Park Assist
An advanced version of Active Park Assist featuring Perpendicular Parking enables drivers to detect suitably-sized parallel parking spaces and reverse hands-free into spaces and is supported by Park-Out Assist, which helps drivers to exit parallel parking spaces. Side Parking Aid also warns drivers of obstacles to the sides of the vehicles, as well as to the front and rear.
Inflatable Rear Seatbelt
Ford’s industry-first Inflatable Rear Seatbelt technology will make its European debut on the all-new Mondeo. In the event of an accident, the belt rapidly expands to disperse crash forces across a body area five times greater than that achieved by a conventional seatbelt.
Ford SYNC 2 with Emergency Assistance
An important and potentially life-saving aspect of Ford SYNC 2 is Emergency Assistance. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to them if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
