Ford Mondeo XR5 Turbo 2008

Ford Australia unveiled today details of the most anticipated new model debut of 2007, the brand new European-engineered Mondeo.

1Mondeo will introduce new levels of style, refinement and safety to the medium size segment and set a new benchmark for how a car should drive` said Tom Gorman – Ford Australia President.

`Exemplary driving dynamics is a key element of Ford DNA and Mondeo is no exception. The new model delivers an outstanding driving experience and customers will be extremely impressed with just how good the overall package is`.

`The best way to describe kinetic design is to think about a sprinter at the starting blocks, tilting forward and poised for action – it`s all about creating an athletic and purposeful stance. This is the image that the new Mondeo portrays, in motion or stationary` affirmed Mr Gorman.

`Elements of kinetic design also apply to the interior of the vehicle and are evident in the ambient lighting, soft-touch materials and attention to detail in the cabin environment`.

`The automatic provides for a smoother drive and better performance` said Mr Gorman. `Gear changes in automatic guise become virtually indiscernible and the six-speed transmission`s more efficient delivery of power to the ground is able to provide exceptional fuel economy`.

`In the case of the diesel this equates to a range of more than 950km^, or enough to travel from Melbourne to Sydney with enough remaining to drive around once you arrive`.

`New Ford Mondeo marks a step change for Ford in terms of design and technology` continued Mr Gorman.

`With the arrival of Mondeo, Ford now has our strongest ever portfolio of imported small to medium passenger cars, giving us the ability to deliver an even greater range of desirable new vehicles to our customers`.
