2010 Ford Mondeo will make its official debut at the 2010 Moscow International Automobile Salon on August 25. The new model will be available in the UK in October. The vehicle features a restyled exterior and uprated interior, new high-efficiency Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel powertrains, plus a host of new driver comfort and convenience features and safety technologies.

John Fleming, Ford of Europe chairman and CEO comments: "The Ford Mondeo is already a very strong package and, with the significant design changes and in particular the comprehensive array of new technologies we are introducing, we have no doubt that the new model will strengthen Mondeo's position as the flagship Ford model in our European line-up,"

"This is the smartest, safest, most environmentally friendly and best quality Mondeo we have ever launched, and it completes the regeneration of our CD segment range in 2010.", he added.

The engine range features a higher performance 240PS version of the efficient 2.0-litre Ford EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine. This will be complemented by the existing 203PS version of this engine launched in Mondeo. The engine grants extra power, but the emissions are just 179g/km (same as the 203PS unit). The fuel consumption is less with up to 20 per cent compared to traditional petrol engines with same displacement.

The diesel – Ford Duratorq TDCi engine is boosted to 200PS, which makes it the most powerful Duratorq to date. Other versions of the engine are also evailable – 115, 140 or 163PS – all of them emitt just 139g/km. The diesel is fitted with 6-speed manual transmission.

The latest six-speed Ford PowerShift double wet-clutch transmission system comes as standard for Ford EcoBoost petrol engines, and will be available as an option for the 140PS and 163PS versions of the 2.0-litreDuratorqTDCi.

2010 Mondeo comes with a comprehensive array of driver assistance features, many of which are appearing for the first time in a Ford model, including Lane Departure Warning, Driver Alert and Auto High Beam. 

The car also icnludes the Blind Spot Information System, Speed Limiter, Rear Door Power Child Locks and Rear View Camera.
