New Mondeo To Deliver Dynamic Boost To Ford Line Up
Wednesday, 13 May 2015 – Advanced Ford technologies and elegant design – The all-new Ford Mondeo is set to deliver a dynamic boost to the Ford line up in Singapore.
Featuring a sleek silhouette and fresh face, the all-new Ford Mondeo is the latest in a series of vehicles from Ford – developed to satisfy customers everywhere who want leading fuel efficiency, helpful technologies and game-changing looks.
The new Mondeo delivers a dynamic boost to our expanding Ford lineup in Singapore. With advanced Ford technologies and elegant design, the Mondeo offers a sophisticated driving experience that customers have come to expect from Ford.
The sleek new Mondeo is equipped with a refined and high performance 2.0L EcoBoost® engine that is mated to a smooth, six-speed automatic transmission, featuring 240 PS and 345 Nm of torque, while fuel economy of just 8L/100Km.
Ford’s EcoBoost® technology combines turbocharging, direct injection, and variable valve timing to reduce engine displacement while improving fuel efficiency by up to 20 percent, and reducing CO2 emissions by up to 15 percent compared with traditional engines of equivalent performance.
Innovative and advanced technology
The new Mondeo features Ford’s exclusive MyKey technology. MyKey offers extra peace-of-mind for owners by enabling them to programme the key to restrict various features – either for themselves or when others such as teenage children are driving.
Owners can restrict top speed, reduce the maximum volume of the audio system and even disable the audio system altogether if the driver and passengers are not using safety belts.
Also debuting in Singapore is Ford’s SYNC 2 connectivity system, which boasts a larger, eight-inch colour touchscreen to operate phone and entertainment. SYNC 2 boasts an array of new and enhanced features, with increased voice recognition capabilities that can help drivers stay connected while keeping their eyes on the road.
The Mondeo’s advanced technology also extends to lighting, which combines full-LED headlamps with Ford’s Adaptive Front Lighting System to enhance the driver’s view of the surroundings.
The system adjusts the headlight beam angle and intensity to match the driving environment, ambient light conditions, steering angle, distance to the vehicle in front and windscreen wiper activation. The new Mondeo also comes with Adaptive Cruise Control, a rear view camera and paddle shifter, further optimizing efficiency and safety.
Superior refinement, design, quality and convenience
The new Mondeo delivers great quality and craftsmanship, both inside and outside.
Produced at Ford’s state-of-the-art plant in Valencia, Spain, the Mondeo features a sports coupe profile with low roofline. The lean side-profile is sculpted to convey visual lightness, while the sophisticated and technical front end design features Ford’s prominent trapezoidal grille, a power-dome bonnet and adaptive, slim-line, laser-cut headlamp design.
Inside, a sleek, wrap-around centre console design delivers a sporty, cockpit-like feel, and features a symmetrical design, and features a symmetrical design that is accessible to both the driver, and front seat passenger. The driver’s seat, steering wheel with its power-adjustable steering column, and the wing mirrors are all linked to a memory setting, for added convenience for drivers.
The new Mondeo’s smart-design front seats feature a thinner seat back, enabling rear seat passengers to enjoy additional legroom without sacrificing driver and front passenger comfort. The 10-way adjustable front seats also feature heating features.
Road noise reductions have been achieved with integral link rear suspension and additional sound deadening material, while wind noise is reduced to levels previously only experienced in the premium segment.
Stronger body with advanced materials
The new Mondeo uses sophisticated materials and production techniques to deliver greater strength and improved safety with reduced weight and enhanced sustainability.
An industry-first application of hydro-formed high strength steel is used to produce the A-pillars, B-pillars, and roof rails. A new magnesium inner tailgate structure delivers weight-saving of approximately 40 percent compared to a traditional steel equivalent.
Recently crowned the UK’s Best Estate Car at the ‘2015 What Car? Awards’, the all-new Ford Mondeo is now available at Regent Motors.
