The only gas powertrain available now is the 139kW (189hp) 2L Atkinson cycle hybrid system also available on the Fusion.

There’s also a 2L EcoBlue turbo-diesel with 112kW (150hp) or 142kW (190hp) with a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic.

The Mondeo is available as either a liftback hatch or wagon/estate. A new model with raised Subaru Outback style body, and a plug-in hybrid option will be launched late 2021.
