Driving Experience

The new Mondeo Hybrid is packed with advanced technologies designed to make your life easier. Some systems, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, and a Lane Keeping System, continuously monitor and respond to changes in road conditions, traffic and your driving. Other useful features, including Hill Start Assist and Active Park Assist help deliver a stress-free, more refined driving experience.

Cruise control that automatically stops and restarts your Mondeo

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go technology lets you choose the speed you want the system to maintain. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your vehicle to maintain a pre-set distance, and can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop in heavy traffic. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate back up to your chosen speed.

*Stop and Go only available on EcoBlue Diesel engines

Energy efficient and with a striking new design, the new LED daytime running lights help get you noticed during the day.

An advanced system to help you stay in your lane

A Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Alert then warns you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning. If you're slow to react or don’t respond, Lane Keeping Aid can provide steering torque assistance to help guide you back into the right lane. The technology is designed for multi-lane roads (like motorways), so will automatically deactivate at speeds below 43mph or can be turned off manually.

Parking made even easier

Active Park Assist can steer you into both parallel and perpendicular parking spaces. It can manoeuvre into parallel spaces just 20% longer than your vehicle. Simply push a button and the sensors of this innovative system locate a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake (following on-screen instructions and audible signals). And Park-Out Assist is designed to help you get out of a parallel parking space in the same way.

Confidence in changeable conditions

An Intelligent AWD system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this ‘torque on demand’ system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.

Advanced suspension for superb ride and handling

The Mondeo has a multi-link rear suspension. This advanced system is light, rigid and perfectly tuned, for excellent responsiveness, control and ride quality.

Set your own speed limit and the Mondeo stays within it

Integrated with the cruise control function, the Speed Limiter lets you set your chosen maximum speed. The car then stays within that speed, so you can keep your eyes on the road. When you need to go faster, just press the accelerator firmly to override the system.

Helping you see, without dazzling others

A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead, stopping you dazzling other drivers. It then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.

Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering. Now with drift control, EPAS also takes into account crosswinds and other driving conditions, while active nibble control reduces any unwanted vibration in the steering wheel.

Extra control during hill starts

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator.

Easier, safer reversing

Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear. 

Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance

An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency AssistanceFord Emergency Assistance - updated. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
