It comes with three-year/100,000 km warranty and three years or 60,000 km free service. There are 4 choices of colours: Tectonic Silver, Frozen White, Panther Black and Ruby Red.
I am disappointed the following 2 FAMOUS Ford colours' omitted. Sime Darby Auto Connexion should bring in Moondust Silver and Deep Impact Blue and omitted the uncle Techtonic Silver.
Pictures below taken from Ford Australia website:
Don't you agree with me the above colours looks good.
In terms of specifications level, our car largely mirrors Australia’s mid-level Trend variant, but adds a few stuff from the top Titanium trim. We get adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and start, dual-zone auto air-con with rear vents, 10-way powered front seats and auto lights and wipers, as well as shift paddles, front and rear parking sensors and an electronic parking brake.
Another highlights of the Mondeo CD391 feature is MyKey. MyKey allows the programming of features such as setting the maximum speed limit and the maximum audio volume, while the eight-inch SYNC 2 touch-screen incorporates a reverse camera display, Bluetooth, USB, AUX and Voice Command. No navigation, but there’s a nine-speaker Sony sound system.
On the outside, you’ll make out adaptive LED headlamps with DRLs,
twin tailpipes and 17-inch twin five-spoke alloys covered in 235/50R17 tyres.
In my opinion, looks SMALL for the car, thanks to the LARGE Wheelarch. It Needs 18" wheels.
Under the bonnet is 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine as seen in it's predecessor, you get the same 240 PS at 5,300 rpm and 345 Nm of torque between 2,300 and 4,900 rpm – but this time, the motor works with a conventional six-speed torque converter auto instead of the six-speed PowerShift twin-clutcher.
I went to checked out the Mondeo CD391 at the 1st day of launching on 8 May. Test drive unit not available at that time. Anyway, if you want to buy this car, please call me, Jeff Lim at 012-6852-718.
That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry. Partially my original work as some of the photos and information taken from Ford Australia website.
