Ford introduces the all-new 2013 Mondeo Wagon

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 7, 2012

Ford’s new Mondeo has been recently launched in Europe. The Mondeo is the twin of the 2013 Fusion under the One Ford strategy. The European Mondeo and American Fusion share nearly all the mechanical features. However, the Fusion is available only with a sedan variant while the Mondeo is offered to European consumers as a hatchback or a wagon too.

These bodystyles are actually not new to the Mondeo. A six-speed manual transmission is also offered to the European market. The Ford Mondeo hatchback can be distinguished by its rear wiper. This means that when the cargo is quite bulky, the entire rear windshield will have to be lifted. Predictably, the wagon extends the Mondeo’s roofline past the C-pillar, resulting in an almost square liftgate.

It appears to have broader rear fenders because the character line that runs through its door handles kinks up above the rear wheel. The Mondeo is available with the hybrid and Energi plug-in hybrid powertrains that the 2013 Ford Fusion offers.

But aside from those, the new Mondeo can come with turbodiesel engines and Ford’s new 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. The One Ford strategy makes its easy for Ford to sell the same set of vehicles in numerous countries, resulting in saving on development and marketing expenses. The two models for the U.S. will also be offered in Europe.
