On the outside, all three body styles (four-door sedan, five-door liftback and estate) of the 2011 Mondeo gained a restyled front bumper with LED daytime running lights, a revised bonnet profile and restyled LED tail lamps. Interior revisions are kept to a minimum with a reprofiled center console, higher quality plastics on the door panels and trim materials.
The most interesting update lies underneath the hood, with the introduction of a 240HP derivative of the original 203HP 2.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine. On the diesel front, the 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine has been given a 12% power boost to 200HP. The 240HP Ecoboost petrol engine, which is offered with a six-speed PowerShift clutch double-clutch transmission as standard, accelerates the sedan and liftback Mondeo from zero to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds (203HP version: 7.9 seconds) with a top speed of 246km/h, returning a combined fuel economy of 7.7lt/100km.
Ford mentioned that a new 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and Duratorq TDCi diesel engine will also be available in the very near future.
