Ten Second Review
The ideal estate car is one that offers excellent utility but doesn't penalise you for it with poor refinement and soggy handling. Ford were mindful of this when developing the latest Mondeo estate, a car which not only drives well but also looks a good deal sleeker than most boxy estate models.
Estate car buyers tend to be a very sane bunch, unswayed by the latest fads. Rather, they value practicality and, more often than not, their choice of car is meticulously researched. Function first is a motto that tends to reward smart engineering and sound design and it's the reason why Ford's Mondeo estate has always been a strong seller. When Ford decided to trim its latest Mondeo range, it was the saloon version that was elbowed out with the estate getting all of the latest upgrades. It isn't hard to see why. Take a tape measure to the Mondeo estate and you'll realise that this is the biggest vehicle Ford imports to the UK; longer than an S-MAX or Galaxy seven-seat people carrier. That means plenty of space in the back for the sort of gear your family needs. Even if your requirements don't involve kids but a gear-intensive hobby, the Mondeo estate could be exactly what you're looking for.
If Ford could make this estate version drive much like the five-door hatch it would have a winner on its hands. Guess what? It does. There's a reassuringly polished feel to the that's usually the preserve of far more expensive cars - and the same excellent refinement at speed. Low profile roof rails help cut the wind roar that many estate cars suffer from and the cabin is well insulated from road noise with no booming apparent from the big box at the back. Handling is safe and assured but the Mondeo estate never completely disguises its size and you might need to pass up some smaller parking spaces. On the plus side, rear visibility is notably better than that of the high-rumped five-door hatch. The choice of engines is vast, although the headline-grabbing 240bhp 2.0-litre petrol model and 2.2-litre 200bhp diesel are only available with upspec trim levels and therefore of marginal interest to most. Of far more relevance are the 163bhp 2.0 diesel with the option of the brilliant Powershift twin clutch transmission and the super-clean turbocharged 160bhp 1.6 Ecoboost petrol engine. The former will knock off the sprint to 60mph in 9.1 admirably clatter-free seconds whereas the latter requires just 9.0s to get to 60mph on its way to a 134mph maximum. Although it may seem a false economy to fit a 1.6-litre petrol engine to a car as big as the Mondeo estate, this downsized powerplant has enough low-down torque to shift even a well-loaded car without complaint.
Design and Build
There aren't too many estate cars that look remotely sexy but if you choose your specification wisely, the latest Mondeo estate does a better impression than most. Decent alloys are key, as is the right metallic paint finish. The latest Mondeo features a sharper interpretation of Ford's 'kinetic design' philosophy, and that translates into meaner looking headlights, a bigger lower air intake, a narrower grille and the fitment of LED daytime running lights at the front and LED bulbs in the enlarged tail light cluster. High-spec models also get a bit more brightwork around the glasshouse. It's inside that you'll notice the biggest changes, most tellingly in the quality of the materials used. The centre console has been redesigned, with a more subtle, classy looking finish. There are still a few hard plastics used for the stalks and lower dash but on the whole it feels a good deal more agreeable. Move round to the back and the load bay is as cavernous as ever, offering over 1700 litres of space with the rear seats folded. As you might expect in a car that's almost five metres long, the Mondeo estate doesn't want for legroom front or rear and headroom is generous throughout.
Market and Model
The estate versions of the Mondeo command a premium of around £1,000 over their saloon counterparts which means that you'll need just over £18,000 for the 120bhp petrol-engined entry-level model. It's probably wise to step up to a diesel if you're planning on loading the car heavily and for this you'll need at least £19,000. There are plenty of engines available, starting with a 115bhp diesel and topping out with a 240bhp petrol, Ford really offering something for all. The most powerful diesel and petrol engines are only offered with the most expensive trim levels, though, which is a bit of a shame. The Mondeo estate has been treated to some high-tech features that were once the preserve of more expensive models. Blind Spot Information System has been borrowed from Volvo to warn of overtaking (or undertaking cars). There's also the option of a lane departure warning system that vibrates the wheel if you start to stray out of lane at over 60kmh. A Mercedes-style driver alert system assesses your drowsiness and warns you to take a break and the cruise control system can be ordered with a speed limiter which is decidedly handy for SPECS-camera enforced motorway sections. There's a huge selection of stereo and satnav options with the best setup getting DAB digital radio which interfaces to an iPod, features Bluetooth and also doubles as a handy reversing camera. Do bear in mind that unlike others of its type, the Powershift gearbox doesn't net you any additional fuel economy benefits over the conventional manual box.
Cost of Ownership
The sinking residual values of mainstream vehicles like the Mondeo have been the key reason why buyers have flocked in their droves to smaller cars with more prestigious badges and the latest Mondeo estate can't hope to match these retained values. That's not quite the problem for this car it might seem, because if you're attracted by the utility offered by an estate, you'll need to spend an arm and a leg to get comparable utility and a posh badge. Perhaps the Mondeo estate can justify itself on the balance sheet. The engines certainly speak for themselves. Take the 163bhp 2.0-litre TDCI diesel for example. You might expect a big estate car capable of nigh-on 140mph to have a reasonable thirst but it still manages over 50mpg on the combined cycle, along with modest 139g/km emissions. Even the thirstiest car in the line up, the 240bhp 2.0-litre EcoBoost, is good for 37mpg. Factor in cheap servicing, bargain basement insurance and low emissions for both the modern petrols and diesel powerplants alike and you have a much sturdier proposition. Compelling enough to offset the still rather unspectacular residual values? In my opinion, yes.

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.
