Ten Second Review
The upmarket Vignale offers a very different spin on the Ford Mondeo ownership experience. A more personal service and some mouthwatering trim and equipment choices make this a bit of a treat.
It's time to sit down, settle back and hit the 'way back when' button. We'll rewind back to a time when the Carrozzeria Ghia SpA was one of the real heavy hitters of the Italian styling business. That was back in the Fifties, with the company working with VW on the Karmann Ghia and Volvo on the lovely P1800. By the mid-Sixties, Ghia was in trouble and was at one point owned by De Tomaso, eventually ending up being snapped up by Ford. Seeing some value in the name, Ford decided to make the Ghia name its top trim level. Soon we started to see all sorts of sorry Orions and Escorts bearing this once proud name. Giacinto Ghia must have been rolling in his grave. Well, Ford's at it again. For Ghia, swap in Vignale. This is another Italian coachbuilder who fell on hard times, the company once owned by De Tomaso. Ford bought the name in 2013 and will hopefully treat it with more respect than it gave to Ghia. The first vehicle that gets the Vignale treatment certainly looks the goods. The Vignale Mondeo offers a buyer experience you probably never reckoned on from Ford.
This top Ford is sold with the more powerful engines from the Blue Oval brand's stable, which means you get to choose between 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel units, as well as the 187PS petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. Go for the 2.0-litre EcoBoost 240PS variant and you get a six-speed automatic transmission. The 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel is offered with six-speed manual and PowerShift automatic transmissions, plus it also gets Ford's intelligent all-wheel drive system. Additionally offered is Ford's latest 210PS Bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi engine, this delivering a crushing 450Nm of torque available from 2000rpm. There's been a huge effort devoted to increasing refinement in the Vignale models. Ford's innovative Active Noise Cancellation system enhances interior refinement. Using three cabin microphones, the system is able to monitor engine noise in the interior. Advanced audio technology directs opposing sound waves through the audio system to cancel out engine noise and improve cabin ambience. Acoustic glass helps reduce wind noise to levels normally experienced only in the premium segment. Ford's integral link rear suspension claims to offer a smoother ride, in particular for rear seat passengers. The engineers also reckon that this set-up reduces noise levels by allowing the wheels to move further rearwards on impact with uneven road surfaces.
Design and Build
Although the silhouette is recognisably Mondeo, the Vignale's design details are worth a closer look. The upper grille features a hexagonal design in dark matt metallic finish and finished with a polished aluminium surround. There's also a high-gloss lower grille with chrome bars, chrome door details, a high-gloss finish for the windshield pillar and for the central and rear window pillars. Special 18-inch Vignale alloy wheels and an exclusive Vignale Nocciola paint finish are also offered. On to colour. Metallic paint comes as standard, with further options including Vignale Black, Vignale Silver and premium four-coat Vignale White. The interior looks a cut above, with seats are offered in exclusive Vignale leather trim. Laser-cut for high precision, the material features hexagonal quilting and tuxedo stitching with soft-touch elements that extend to the instrument panel, centre console, arm-rest, and door top-rolls. For front seat passengers, comfort can be optimised by Ford Multi-Contour Seats with Active Motion massage function. Designed to reduce muscle fatigue, particularly during longer journeys, the seats use a system of 11 inflatable cushions to deliver an unobtrusive massaging effect for thighs and lower back.
Market and Model
The Mondeo Vignale is offered in both four-door and estate body styles with prices starting at around £29,500. Bear in mind that this is within £3,000 of an entry-level Jaguar XF and you'll appreciate the scale of Ford's task here. Mind you, the ownership experience is quite special. Each Ford Vignale model is hand-finished by six master craftspeople at the new state-of-the-art Vignale Centre in Valencia, where vehicles are individually tailored to customer specification. Exclusively available to order in the UK from boutique FordStore locations, customers get access to a Vignale Lounge, where they can specify their vehicles, supported by a dedicated relationship manager to ensure a personalised service tailored to individual needs. Among bespoke services available to customers will be collection and delivery for vehicle servicing - from a home address or office location - alongside servicing scheduled to suit the owner. Buyers will also be able to call upon knowledgeable Vignale OneCall advisors 24 hours a day for additional support.
Cost of Ownership
Most British buyers are going to be drawn to the 180PS 2.0-litre diesel powerplant, and rightly so - it's a great engine. It returns 64.2mpg on the combined fuel economy cycle, with emissions of 115g/km. Step up to the 240PS petrol engine and you're looking at around 38mpg and 171g/km. The hybrid version is good for 67mpg and 99g/km. A bigger concern might well be depreciation. These are the most expensive 'mainstream' models Ford sells and it's up for debate whether many will see value in a £30,000+ Mondeo. Still, over 70% of all Mondeo buyers order their cars in upscale Titanium or Titanium X trims, so we're prepared to be proven wrong. If the Vignale can account for 10% of all Mondeo sales, the project will be deemed a success.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
