The new Ford Mondeo isn’t due for another year yet, but Ford has given us a taster of what we can expect with these production ready models.

From launch, the car will be available in the UK in hatchback and estate variants, while the saloon bodystyle will go on sale in the US.

The most obvious changes are to the styling, but the biggest difference is under the skin – where the new Mondeo will be offered with Ford’s highly praised three-cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. This may sound uninspiring, but it effectively replaces the ageing 1.6-litre while boasting improved economy and emissions.

Prices are yet to be announced, but the ramp up in quality and therefore desirability could well see a premium over the outgoing model, which currently starts at around £18,000.
