FORD Mondeo reviewNGC verdict 12.02.2015
The new Ford Mondeo hybrid has mainly been developed because of the demand for petrol-electric hybrids in the USA and is the first Ford hybrid to be built and sold in Europe. It's a lovely looking car with stacks of space but only available as a saloon and more expensive than its petrol and diesel stable mates.
But if you are a Toyota Prius buyer in search of a bigger car the Mondeo is right up your street and the Mondeo rides better. Steering 'feel' is disappointingly unpleasant. Like all hybrids, the Mondeo is most efficient in urban driving conditions. It won the current Next Green Car large family car category in 2014.
