Clues to new face of the Mondeo?

ONE of Britain's most popular fleet cars is in line for a dramatic makeover later this year. Destined to be a star of September's Paris Motor Show, the new Ford Mondeo will feature significantly changed styling aimed at promoting a more upmarket appearance when it goes on sale in the UK late this year.

Significant clues as to the way the top-secret replacement of Ford's key midsize model will look when it breaks cover were made public at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. According to company insiders, the wind-cheating shape of the Prodigy hybrid electric model which was unveiled at the show gives a strong indication of how the new Mondeo is to be styled.

A wider stance with wheels set closer to the edge of the bodywork are claimed to be major elements in the drive to achieve the looks of a more upscale vehicle - reminiscent of the Volkswagen Passat. Closer shut lines and stronger front and rear treatment will also underline the car's appeal as higher grade transport.
