There are two series of the all new Ford Mondeo, which has just driven into Ireland.

They are the Zetec and Titanium versions. Prices start from €28,995 for the Zetec and from €31,495 for the Titanium. Body styles include five-door and a wagon variant.

The new Mondeo may have been slow in getting to these parts because it has been on sale in America under a different name, but it is is Ford dealerships now and the initial reaction is said to have been enthusiastic.

Car sales are on the up and up in Ireland at the moment, and with a sharp increase expected in 2015, Ford are thrilled with the arrival of what is an eagerly awaited car and huge performer in their range.

Eddie Murphy, chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland said they were delighted at the reaction to the all new Mondeo.

He insisted it was a beautiful looking car that has the great driving dynamics that have become synonymous with Ford cars.

“Our engineers have really done a great job in providing a vehicle that serious car drivers will love with excellent road-holding ability and superior levels of technology, safety and all round comfort,” Mr Murphy added.

“We are sure that new Mondeo will feature prominently on any prospective new car purchaser’s list of cars for January.

“With this in mind, we have launched a range of options to tempt these buyers, including a very attractive, low interest finance deal that will allow customers to get behind the wheel of a new Mondeo for as little as €299 per month.”

The Ford Options finance deal is based on a low interest 4.9% APR deal on a Mondeo Zetec 1.6 litre TDCi 115PS if ordered by November 30.

In addition, Ford is offering 151 registration buyers specially discounted upgrade packs. These include a Mondeo Zetec Appearance Pack of 17” alloys, chrome door line and front and rear parking sensors valued at €635 but available for just €294 if booked by November 30.

The seasonal Titanium Winter Pack features heated seats and heated steering wheel and is available at no extra cost, which represents a saving of €320.

New Mondeo features a ground breaking Inflatable Rear Seatbelt, which is an industry first. Mondeo continues to drive back the boundaries, a tradition established from when the car was first launched 21 years ago.
