The Mondeo is available not until two years after the Fusion e.g., in USA, because the Genk plant was closed and it is now produced exclusively in Valencia. It has a one-box design in Europe, whether as a sedan or estate car always with through-loading facility and a large tailgate.
Up front it is still similar an Aston Martin and sometimes its lateral silhouette is compared with the Jaguar XF. Under the sheet metal, however, it is an enlarged Ford Focus, with which it of course also shares a lot of engines, including the not yet directly available three-cylinder with a displacement of one liter (see above).
There are good and less good takeovers of USA. Among the good is certainly the programmable key, about the we reported here. A model for others also could be the inflatable belt (Figure 8) rear, not just for kids and older people. Annoying are the various noises, for example, this car produces when closing the tailgate and when forgetting to wear the safety belt.
Whether the Americans make so much better except noise? Is it really necessary that a double steering wheel adjustment is done electrically? Ford vehicles have always been oriented more to practice than on luxury, at least in Europe. How often one adjusts such a steering wheel in an entire life cycle of the vehicle, even if several people drive it? Would it have been too elaborated to make this available as an extra? What would the company's founder Henry say, the very late the starter let in the T-model?
And if we are already critical, then one has to restrain oneself at the speech input yet. After all, one learns to let the other finish speaking, but also and especially because it is only a machine. But just like this the conversations sounds. And if then still driving noises happen, it is not far to the early use of an ear trumpet. 10/14
