The new bi-turbo diesel engine: a whole new level of performance

Our new bi-turbo diesel is a highly advanced piece of engine technology. Not only is it the first bi-turbo diesel we’ve ever installed in a passenger car, it’s also the most powerful, delivering a thrilling and highly responsive 210PS (154kW) with an impressive 450Nm of torque. The engine also provides outstanding fuel economy and, from just 124g/km, lower CO2 emissions than you’d expect from a powertrain with this level of performance.Smart design and clever engineering means that twin turbochargers provide power on demand, in every situation. The primary turbo works at lower speeds, giving you an extra boost when you need it. For example, when turning from a junction into moving traffic. The secondary turbo works at higher speeds for swift, smooth and more confident overtaking.

EcoBoost: getting the most out of your engine

Three EcoBoost petrol engine options use a combination of direct fuel injection and turbo-charging, to deliver outstanding levels of performance and economy:

  • At 125PS, the revolutionary (and multi award-winning) three cylinder 1.0 litre EcoBoost gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 engine with around 25% better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions
  • The new 1.5 litre EcoBoost produces 160PS with fuel economy of 5.9 litres/100km
  • The 2.0 litre EcoBoost delivers an impressive 240PS, while a specially tuned sound symposer lets you enjoy its distinctive engine note in the cabin, when you’re accelerating hard.

The 2.0 TDCi offers three power outputs, peaking at an impressive 210PS with a twin-turbo, whilst still achieving excellent economy and low emissions.

Enjoy the benefits of Hybrid Electric technology

As befits a car that pioneers technology, the Mondeo is available as an advanced Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV): the first ever to be manufactured by Ford in Europe. By combining the benefits of both electric and petrol power, the Mondeo Hybrid enables you to enjoy outstanding efficiency and refinement along with rewarding performance and driving range. Regenerative braking, an innovative Smartgauge with ‘Brake Coach’, plus other smart systems, help further maximise this car’s power and efficiency.

Paddle shift controls on the steering wheel

Change gears fast, with your fingertips

Normally only found on high end sports cars, Automatic Paddle Shift Controls are available with your Mondeo. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the paddle controls are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
