2007 Ford Mondeo XR5 Turbo


The Mondeo XR5 is not a bad looking car despite the small wheel arches making it look like a shopping trolley which is strange given that the alloys are a decent (18-inch) size. The strongly sculpted front is the feature point of the XR5 and spreads its message all the way around the front fenders and along the side. It is a good-looking front end which won¹t be mistaken of the road.

The waistline is high and it has a small glass area which imbues a sense of security but also a slight sense of claustrophobia.

Inside it is very nice (Ford has really pulled ahead in this area) with a strong feeling of solidity and quality to the interior architecture. The instrument binnacle in particular deserves a mention for the way the screen between the tacho and speedo presents all information in one easy to see place.
