Ford thus has high expectations of the new Mondeo, hoping to steal sales away from Volkswagen, Buick, Hyundai, Honda and Toyota.

Two, or actually three, engines are ready for the battle in the mid-size sedan segment: a 2.0 turbo with either 240hp or 200hp, and the new high-tech 1.5 liter turbo Ecoboost four-cylinder with 181hp and 240nm. All engines are mated to a 6-speed SelectShift.

Ford totally ripped off the Fiat Viaggio!

I think you are mistaken Jeff. Since for used to own Jaguar this is a copy of the new Jag launched a few years ago. Shortly after making Land Rover/Jaguar profitable again, Ford sold them. However they retain a few designers for Fords use. Look at the entire Ford line and you will notices features and lines seen on the Jags and Rovers release the past few years. Cheers! BTW… This Ford is much sexier than the Fiat.

I can’t wait for the images of people replacing the badge with Aston Martin ones…When that happens, this’ll probably be nicknamed the “cheap man’s Aston”…
