Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Two months before Ford debuts the facelifted version of the Mondeo at the 2010 Moscow Auto Show, it takes the covers off the sedan. And Ford unveiled it only a day after spyshots were shown to the public. Ford made changes to its interior and exterior appearance and gave it upgraded powertrains and safety features.

The first images confirm the presence of new grilles that have a bolder lower trapezoid and a slim opening above, plus an enhanced bonnet profile.

Changes to its exterior consist of new front bumpers with LED daytime running lights, and redesigned rear lights that also employ LED technology. In addition, a new rear deck lid treatment matches the revised rear light profile.

For its interior, Ford gave the 2011 Mondeo a new center console design, revised door treatment and a new central overhead console with ambient lighting. Ford also put in new trim materials across the range.

On this model, Ford is introducing LED courtesy lights and a new satellite navigation system. It also gets a new Premium Sound System option which incorporates a 265-watt, eight-channel amplifier unit, all-new speaker system and a 17-liter subwoofer.

The new Mondeo is available as a 4- or 5-door hatchback or as an estate and it will come with new EcoBoost units. Buyers can opt for the 2.2-liter TDCi with 200 bhp or the 2.0-liter petrol delivering 240 bhp which comes with the PowerShift transmission and has emissions of 179 g/km of CO2.

For safety, the sedan offers the following features: Lane Departure Warning, Driver Alert and Auto High Beam, as well as Blind Spot Information System, Speed Limiter, Rear Door Power Child Locks and Rear View Camera. European dealerships will receive the 2011 Ford Mondeo this fall. Pricing information as well as its specifications will be revealed as the market launch nears.
