COLOGNE, Germany – Ford has announced its most luxurious Mondeo ever – the new, range-topping Mondeo Titanium X.
The Titanium X delivers a high-specification Mondeo that includes a premium, leather-wrapped instrument panel for the first time in a European Ford vehicle. This is complemented by the same Windsor leather for the door trims and the centre console arm rest.
The latest addition to Ford’s flagship model also introduces full-leather seating packages, improved equipment levels and high-quality interior and exterior styling options.
“The new upgrades to our top series underline and reinforce Mondeo’s luxury style,” said Chris Bird, design director, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “In addition, Mondeo delivers the advanced technology package customers have come to expect from Ford.”
The full leather seating package, available in Ice Stone or Ebony, features Ford’s high-quality Windsor hide, a very rich and smooth leather normally found on premium accessories and tailored luxury goods, complemented by a contrasting seam.
The Mondeo Titanium X also features unique Proteus Black decorative inserts, a Piano Black gear lever surround, premium velour floor and door-bin mats, “Mondeo” embossed scuff plates finished in stainless steel and a reversible luggage compartment mat for wagon and five-door models.
A long list of standard features includes LED daytime running lamps, cruise control, front and rear Parking Aid sensors and the premium Mondeo instrument cluster with 256-colour TFT screen and Ford Convers+ advanced control interface. This uses high-quality graphics and steering wheel controls to enable drivers to monitor and operate media, navigation and Bluetooth-connected mobile phone functions.
Mondeo customers also benefit from a number of market-specific changes.
The Mondeo Titanium X is now available in Germany, Belgium, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania as well as selected import markets.
Ford also revealed further improvements to fuel economy for its large car range.
The Mondeo is now available with a revised 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi engine, which cuts CO2 emissions to 129g/km from 139g/km and reduces fuel consumption to 4.9l/100km from 5.3 l/100km. This follows gear ratio optimisation, adjusted fuel injection timings and a carefully adapted powertrain calibration that also improves performance feel at low engine speeds.
The 2.0-litre engine is available in four-door, five-door and wagon versions of the Mondeo Titanium X in 115, 140, or 163 PS (varies according to market) form, mated with a six-speed manual transmission. Ford S-MAX and Galaxy customers are also able to benefit from improvements to the 2.0-litre engine.
