Originally, Ford Mondeo came in three different major models-a four door, a five door with hatchback and a five door estate. When the car was launched in 1993, its purpose was to replace Ford Sierra, especially in the European markets. In addition, it was meant to replace the Telstar in Asia.
Ford Mondeo is a front wheel (unless otherwise specified) drive vehicle and is typically available in either manual or automatic transmission. In its heyday, the car was a completely new design, unlike any other car Ford had ever built, including the Sierra-as a replacement, it was meant to be nothing like the car being replaced. Mondeo was the first car in history to be sold with standard side airbags, along with many other safety features including seat belt pretensioners, side-impact bars, a driver's airbag, traction control and self-leveling suspension.
Ford has also managed to keep the Ford Mondeo up to date particularly with the chassis and interior redesign in order to continually remain refreshed which has enabled the continuation of successful number of sales around the world. Ford has also created 3 different model specifications in order to increase the number choice available to potential consumers. The Ford Mondeo Edge is Ford's basic model but it still includes a number of features which include Headlight courtesy delay, Cruise control Air conditioning, Advanced Bluetooth with Voice Control System, CD/radio, Intelligent Protection System including driver's knee airbag, Trip computer, Leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Quickclear heated windscreen.
