Front-wheel-drive Cougar is built on the underpinnings of the excellent Mondeo which ensures it is good to drive and compared to many coupes, has a reasonably generous amount of space. It’s great value on the used market, even if its looks aren’t as impressive as they once were but we’d have to point out that the Mondeo V6 has the same chassis and engine, even more practicality and is even cheaper to buy.
