BRENTWOOD, England – Just months after going on sale, the Mondeo has been declared the UK's best family and estate car by What Car? magazine.
The best family car award went to the Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 140PS Zetec, while the Mondeo Estate won the best estate accolade – repeating the car's double success at the What Car? Awards two years ago.
Mondeo collected the two trophies at the What Car? awards ceremony in London late last week.
Steve Fowler, What Car? editor-in-chief, said: "The latest Mondeo is simply a brilliant car – and now even better value. It does everything brilliantly and nothing badly – whether you choose the hatch or estate you’ll be getting a spacious, high quality, affordable car that’s more fun to drive than you’d expect a family car to be."
Nigel Sharp, Ford Britain managing director, commented: "Ford's newest Mondeo has an exterior look and standard of interior well suited to the executive car park. For 2011 we've added powertrains ideal for the low carbon needs of our customers."
