New Ford Mondeo features comfort enhancing technology
The new Ford Mondeo combines innovative driver assist technologies, an advanced chassis structure, and high quality interior to deliver superior comfort and refinement.
Mondeo introduces a new integral link rear suspension for improved ride comfort and interior noise reductions. It also offers Ford's new SYNC 2 voice control connectivity system with eight-inch touchscreen for easy operation of phone, entertainment, climate and navigation systems.
The new suspension design delivers the compliance required for greater comfort, while retaining lateral stiffness for enhanced steering and handling. It also allows the wheel to move rearwards on impact with bumps. This delivers improved impact absorption for a smoother ride and reduced noise levels. Self-levelling rear suspension is offered for the estate model, maintaining optimal ride height for comfort and handling regardless of load.
Technologies including Ford's first adaptive LED headlamps in Europe and Active Park Assist featuring Perpendicular Parking contribute to a simplified driving experience.
Ulrich Koesters, vehicle line director of Ford of Europe, said: "The new all-new Mondeo uses Ford's latest innovation and technologies to deliver the most refined and user-friendly Mondeo driving experience yet. From systems that guide drivers hands-free out of parking spaces at the start of journeys to seats that deflate to allow easy exit at the end, the Mondeo is focused on the occupant from start to finish."
Inside, Mondeo Titanium drivers are greeted by a 10-inch digital-analogue instrument cluster. The customisable colour display delivers animated notifications for features such as Lane Keeping Alert.
A sleek, wrap-around centre console design delivers a sporty, cockpit-like feel, and the centre console features a symmetrical design that is accessible to both the driver and the front seat passenger as is the large, open flow-through storage bin in front of the gear selector.
A soft-touch instrument panel, flock-lined central front storage area and glovebox, chrome surrounds and accents on the air-vents and soft touch controls are all representative of the high material quality and craftsmanship throughout.
