A few hours ago, we received an unofficial confirmation that Ford is indeed preparing a successor to the Mondeo. Spy photos taken in Germany strongly suggest that a replacement is currently in development.
The photos show that the model is very similar to the Ford Evos in terms of design, especially at the front, although there are some major differences at the rear. The prototype looks a lot like a traditional sedan, and its shape is not much different from the current Mondeo hatchback. For SUV and crossover enthusiasts, this is definitely good news.
To give a more detailed look at the Mondeo’s successor, designer KDesign rendered the vehicle based on the spy photos. We’re already excited about the new Blue Oval product, it’s a breath of fresh air in the age of SUVs that are dominating the charts around the world.
Judging by several details including the door handles and side mirrors, the renderings are based on the current Mondeo. This gives the vehicle a lower stance compared to what we have seen in the spy photos and we are not complaining. Obviously a lot will be different between the renderings and the actual car, but at least we get an overall look at the new Mondeo (which might have a different name).
With crossovers and SUVs playing a major role in Ford’s lineup, it’s good to see that the company hasn’t forgotten about customers who want to drive something more conventional, sitting lower down the road. Early reports of the Mondeo’s successor pointed to a top-of-the-line station wagon rivaling the Subaru Outback, but it looks like Ford’s plans have changed. We will see.
