Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

3.0 out of 5

The Mondeo Estate Hybrid has a reasonably nice interior, even if it is starting to show its age a little having been introduced back in 2014. Standard equipment is good, but again, some of the in-car technology is no longer quite at the cutting edge when compared to more modern rivals.

Ford Mondeo Estate Hybrid dashboard

The Mondeo dashboard is looking a bit behind the times these days when compared to the ever-larger touchscreens of rivals, but it does at least incorporate a 10-inch screen behind the steering wheel in place of traditional analogue dials. The hybrid model comes with something called a 'smart gauge' that coaches you to drive more efficiently: the more economically you drive, the more digital green leaves appear on the display.

Equipment, options & accessories

There are four versions of the Mondeo Estate Hybrid and alll have impressive levels of standard equipment. Entry-level Zetec Edition gets 17-inch alloys, front foglamps, LED daytime running lights and tail-lights, chrome trim, power-folding mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, cruise control, automatic emergency braking and a leather steering wheel.

Titanium Edition ups the wheel size to 18 inches and adds rain-sensing wipers, 10-way power-adjustable leather seats, multi-coloured ambient lighting and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The ST-Line Edition boasts sporty looks, with 19-inch alloy wheels, a bodykit, rear privacy glass, partial-leather sports seats, ST-Line logos inside and sports-tuned suspension.

Range-topping Vignale cars are more luxurious than sporty, featuring a different design of 19-inch alloy, unique exterior styling touches, premium leather seats, a heated steering wheel, a rear-view camera, a premium Sony stereo and active noise control to make things quieter inside.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

The Mondeo Estate Hybrid incorporates Ford's latest SYNC 3 infotainment system, bringing together sat nav, smartphone connectivity, digital radio and music playback in one interface. It can be operated by voice commands, as well as from the eight-inch dashboard touchscreen, which supports 'swiping' and 'pinching' motions like a smartphone
