Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 67 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Ford Mondeo Estate running costs are pretty impressive. The Mondeo has been designed to be cheap to repair if you have a crash – for instance in a low-speed impact at the front, the radiator slides forward and remains undamaged. The result is lower insurance groups and cheaper premiums than other large hatchbacks. Servicing is generally affordable and Ford parts prices tend to be reasonably cheap too.

The Ford Mondeo Estate emissions make interesting reading. With an average of 182g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are low for a medium-sized estate. There’s a green model available too. Badged ECOnetic it’s fitted with a revised version of the 1.8 TDCi engine which emits 142g/km of CO2 compared to 151g/km in the standard car – economy also improves and the ECOnetic will average 52mpg.

Little is carried over from the old Mondeo, but this car is still expected to perform strongly on the reliability front. Many of the parts are shared with the Galaxy and S-MAX people carriers, which have been very reliable since they were launched in 2006.
