Equipment

4 out of 5 4.0

To the uninitiated, the Ford Mondeo Estate equipment line-up can be a little confusing as it's not that obvious which trims are the basic ones and which are the top of the range. It is worth noting the differences as it’s possible to sniff out cars with excellent value for money as some are absolutely loaded with kit. In fact, you’ll find the Mondeo representing better value than many competitors for that very reason.

The trim levels start with Edge, which has a 'Quickclear' heated windscreen, air conditioning, electric front windows, electronic stability control, seven airbags, cruise control, an alarm and MP3 audio socket.

Zetec models add electric rear windows, front fog lights and electronic climate control while Ghia models have a different seat design as well as some additional features.

Titanium models have sports seats and 'titanium finish' trim, while Titanium X models include a 'Ford Power' start/stop button and part-leather seats. The Titanium ECOnetic was introduced in October 2009 and is powered by the 2.0 TDCi engine with 115bhp. It's aimed at company car drivers and so gets a low P11d value and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension and an optimum gear change indicator.

In 2010 Ford dropped the Ghia badge from the Mondeo line-up. This leaves six derivatives - Edge remains as the entry level trim, following on from this is Edge+, Zetec is next and is the most popular with customers, Titanium is up next, this is followed by Titanium X and the flagship Titanium Sport X tops the range. Optional extras on the new car include safety systems such as blind-spot alerts, lane-departure steering-wheel vibrators, an alertness assessor, a rear-view camera, automatic headlight dipping speed limiter and LED daytime running lights.

So as you can see, Ford Mondeo Estate accessories are many and varied. Be careful about the options you choose though because some, such as leather seats or sat nav, will affect the resale value of the car far more than others. A car with leather and sat nav is also likely to be much easier to sell since people like having such equipment built-in.

Safety

4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Mondeo hatchback gained a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating and a place among the safest cars you can buy so it's no surprise that the level of safety equipment is impressive. Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) is standard on every car plus there are also seatbelt pre-tensioners, dual front, side, curtain and knee airbags, a collapsible steering column and ABS.

Keyless entry is available on some models too - this means you can leave the key in a pocket or bag and the car will sense you approach and unlock the car. After that it's just a case of pressing a button on the dash to start the engine. Safety on the2010 Mondeo has been enhanced. Optional extras on the new car include includes blind-spot alerts, lane-departure steering-wheel vibrators, an alertness assessor, a rear-view camera, automatic headlight dipping speed limiter and LED daytime running lights.

Interior & boot space

4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Mondeo estate's boot space is bigger than in the previous version of the car, with a minimum of 542 litres up to the window level. With the rear seats folded there is a huge 1733 litres of space available up to roof height. This isn't quite as much as the Vauxhall Vectra estate, but it's still cavernous while a huge square opening and the absence of a boot lip makes it easy to load large or heavy objects.

A load protection net is an optional extra, as is a sliding loading floor, but both are well worth the extra if you frequently use the boot space. The most ingenious feature is one of the simplest - the fuel filler. Not only does the Mondeo do away with a conventional cap (it’s fixed permanently to the flap, which means you don’t get petrol or diesel on your hands), but it’s impossible to fill it with the wrong fuel – it will only allow the right nozzle into the fuel pipe, so you won’t become one of the 250,000 people who each year mis-fuel their car.

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Ford Mondeo Estate (07-14) compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.

Skoda Superb Estate (10-15) 595 litres
