Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide variety of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Ford Mondeo. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the 2019 Ford Mondeo is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2019 Ford Mondeo with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you will get the miserly 2019 Ford Mondeo Hybrid. On the highway, the 2019 Ford Mondeo is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Ford Mondeo also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Ford Mondeo with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2019 Ford Mondeo provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to choose from over the way.
The 2019 Ford Mondeo can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re looking for something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the 2019 Ford Mondeo might just be the sedan for you.
The 2019 Ford Mondeo is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Ford Mondeo Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Ford Mondeo stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Ford Mondeo has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so that the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
