Ford Mondeo Mk II.jpg

Ford Mondeo (CDW162). 1997–2001 (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door saloon, 5-door estate. F/F, 1598, 1796, 1998 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 1753 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 2544 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Wonderful to drive and now with looks to match, answering the criticism that the Mondeo was too bland. New Edge styling shared (with some variation) with US Ford Contour, though rear end unique to Europe. Central section untouched, though rear legroom improved thanks to new front seats. Two-litre revised to have less power but more refinement, though car still sprightly, showing how good the chassis originally was. ST24 and ST200 models (2·5-litre with 170 and 205 PS respectively) emphasized performance credentials. Taiwanese-built Mondeo M2000 models, with Mercury Mystique front end for 2000 and Mondeo rear end, sold into 2001.
