Yeah its time for The Ford Mondeo to capture the hearts of European drivers again. Staying true to the kinetic design cues, Ford will raise the bar for the D-Segment cars again in terms of handling & comfort. Among the power plants one expect to find under the hood is Ford's new generation of super-efficient direct-injection, turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engines that give a 20 per cent reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions over current engines. Among the likely candidates according to Autoexpress are a 1.6-litre offering between 150bhp and 180bhp, and scheduled to debut in the C-MAX next year. There will also be a 2.0-litre producing upwards of 200bhp – and a 150bhp 1.4-litre version. Range topping variant are offered with a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 with 350bhp and 475Nm of torque.Ford also hinted that there would be any price increment over the current model with production set to begin in 2012.
