Ford won’t be shelving Mondeo for Europe in foreseeable future. They have already axed US-spec Fusion. We have spotted few spy photos of the 2019 Ford Mondeo facelifted version undergoing winter testing. It will make its debut next year which will be across European market. Judging by the first look, there are not many changes in the spied version of the 2019 Ford Mondeo prototype. Camouflage covers front and rear of the wagon that suggest that these are the only parts where changes have been made. We expect a new front bumper on the front and subtle changes to taillights and tailgate.
The interior of 2019 Ford Mondeo seems quite similar but there are some changes made. For instance, center console features new switchgear for the climate control system that is present right below the standard Sync 3 touchscreen and a rotary dial for automatic transmission. The transmission resembles a lot like to that of Ford Focus. Hence, don’t be surprised if 2019 Ford Mondeo prototype might use the same eight-speed automatic transmission. As Ford has already announced in October, Mondeo Hybrid will get wagon version in 2019. There is a good chance that it might be it.
2019 Ford Mondeo Hybrid Wagon might get 2.0 liter gasoline-electric powertrain that is rated at 184hp. Don’t be surprised if 2019 Mondeo gains 9.0 kWh lithium-ion battery that made its debut in 2019 Fusion Hybrid. It replaces current 1.4 kWh battery with bigger battery and it will improve pure-electric driving range by about 25 miles. Apart from hybrid powertrain, 2019 Ford Mondeo will also get new EcoBoost 2.0 liter Turbo Diesel and EcoBoost 1.5 liter gasoline engine from 2019 Focus. 2019 Ford Mondeo will get Co-Pilot360 safety pack that consist of adaptive cruise control, active parking assist, evasive steering assist, lane keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
