    New 2007 Mondeo

    Not bad is it? I know you guys are probably all hardcore Vauxhall blokes but you have to admit that this urinates all over the Vectra! I thought Ford would've dropped the "Mondeo" name but it is staying.

    These first lot of pics are "alleged" spy shots although I'm guessing they've been leaked by Ford....












    Here's some pics of the pre-production estate, Martin Smith, who has designed the car says not many changes will take place to the full production car. The Interior is likely to be toned down that's about it.
    Here are the pictures;

    I think it looks well like the vaux signum and them wheels are proper copied off the vauxhall style wheels

    Why two rear calipers? (That Jetta GT-R that was posted the other day had two as well) ...


    Also, looks very American ... but ... I like it

    So you think it looks like a Vauxhall and the wheels are copied from a Vauxhall?

    You're proper hardcore Vauxhall aren't you?

    Doesn't do it for me at all, and all I see are styling cues from other marques - Saab's, Audi's, even HSV's and others stuck on a big bodies Focus.

    Those blister arches, (seemingly small) wheels and ride height just look wrong - even on the heavily airbrushed studio concept shots

    Not bad, I've always been a fan of mondeos - so far they've all been good cars to drive (quite a way ahead of the vectra) so I'm expecting good things.

    My dads been driving mondeos for about 11 years so no doubt we'll have one of these at some point.
