Price cuts and rises for Mondeo line-up

FORD has completely revised its Mondeo range with price cuts of up to £1,450 on some models and price rises of up to £1,150 on others, plus specification improvements throughout the line-up. Every Ford Mondeo now has air conditioning as standard, plus a body-coloured radiator grille and door handles, Quickclear heated windscreens, wide-angle driver's door mirror and rear door pockets.

The price of the entry-level four- and five-door 1.6i 16v LX has been cut from £15,850 to £14,400 on-the-road, a reduction of £1,450. This is accompanied with the scrapping of the former entry-level model, the Aspen Mondeo, which cost £14,850 OTR. Si trim is also scrapped. There are price reductions for the Ghia X range-topping models, both four- and five door saloons and estates, which all fall £850. For example, the Ghia X 1.8TD drops from £20,850 OTR to £20,000 and the Ghia X 2.5i V6 24V goes from £21,850 to £21,000.

Similarly there is a price cut of £850 for the sporty five-door ST24 2.5 V6 24V, from £21,850 to £21,000, however the four-door ST24 2.5 V6 24V increases to £21,000, from £19,850. Throughout the rest of the range there is a £150 price increase, except Zetec models which only go up by £20. For example, the LX 1.8i 16V increases from £15,850 to £16,000, the GLX 2.0i estate goes from £17,850 to £18,000, the Ghia 2.0i 16V from £17,850 to £18,000, while the Zetec 1.8i 16V is now £15,400, from £15,380.

There is also extra specification for each trim level with ABS with dual mode traction control now standard on everything but the entry level LX 1.6i 16V. Zetec models are now equipped with 16in alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, adjustable steering column, CD/radio, front fog lamps, and rear head restraints. Passenger and side airbags are added to the ST24. The Ghia gains a passenger airbag, cruise control, alloy wheels and rear head restraints, and the Ghia X receives side airbags and automatic temperature control.
