Ford debuts new Graphite and Titanium X Business Edition models

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 17, 2013

Ford will soon launch upgraded variants of its much-admired Mondeo executive car range as well as a new series targeted at both private and business customers. With a starting price of £15,995, the new Ford Mondeo Graphite gives retail customers an amazing mixture of exterior appeal and outstanding interior features.

After the achievements set by the Ford Mondeo Zetec Business Edition, the new Titanium X Business Edition provides even more sophisticated standards of technology and interior luxury, which have contributed to securing residual values five percentage points higher than the Mondeo Titanium X that’s on its way out even as it’s priced £1,500 cheaper than the new model.

Ford Mondeo models are powered by the remarkable 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, which is offered throughout all series except Titanium X Sport, have CO2 emissions of only 119g/km across both 140PS and 163PS power outputs (a drop of up to 10g/km). The 163PS version provides more impressive power than Mondeo’s rivals. Its fuel efficiency has also been given a boost from 57.6mpg to 61.4mpg.

Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain managing director, said that this upgrade gives additional features to Ford Mondeo at a price that’s more competitive. All of these benefits make Mondeo a success.

It’s believed that these improvements in its range will make it even more attractive to UK families. Ford modified the calibration of the Mondeo’s 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel engine and optimised aerodynamics to attain its targeted CO2 emissions level of 119g/km from the five-door version and 120g/km from the estate. The lower CO2 levels are eligible for the annual road tax (VED) of £30, a drop from £105.
