Ford's Mondeo crowned 'Car of the Year' 2015

Ford's Mondeo crowned 'Car of the Year' 2015

Three of Ford's most beloved modern cars have won four Honest John Awards, which are determined by the number of vehicle searches on the Honest John website.

The all-new Ford Mondeo scooped two prizes at the awards, the 'Most Popular Large Family Car' award and the ultimate 'Car of The Year' accolade. Meanwhile, Ford's Fiesta won the 'Most Popular Small Hatchback' title and the Transit Custom scooped the 'Most Popular Van' award, for the second year running.

The awards were split into 15 categories, ranging from city car to performance car and prizes were given to those which had proven most popular on the car advice website.

Founded in 2000, Honest John is a well-trusted website dedicated to helping customers with buying, selling and maintaining cars.

Dan Harrison, editor of Honest John, said: "The latest Ford Mondeo has generated a huge amount of interest in it; own right and has fought off strong competition to become our most popular large family car and car of the year. The number of users viewing it has been nothing short of phenomenal and it's easy to see why: it has an upmarket interior, efficient engines and is a great all-rounder.

"We are big fans of the Ford Fiesta. Not only is it economical, fun to drive and attractive to the eye, but it is also incredibly refined, which means it is perfect for town and motorway driving. In fact, few small hatchbacks come close to matching the Ford for all-round ability, which is reflected by its unwavering popularity with the readers at Honest John."

Commenting on the Transit Custom, he continued: "In our opinion, the Custom is the benchmark by which all other one tonne vans are judged, with the Ford offering a practical load area and a superb range of 2.2-litre TDCi engines. Indeed, over the past 12 months, no other commercial vehicle has come close to matching the Custom's popularity, with more page views than any other van on the site."
