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 - 50 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.

Although residuals are an improvement over the old car, the Mondeo will always be a better used buy than a new one – the sheer volume of cars on the road means that supply is likely to out-strip demand. It's 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 Mondeo saloon performs well on the eco front. With an average of 184g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are low for a medium-sized saloon. However, there's no low emission ECOnetic version available, unlike the hatchback and estate models.

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.
