Ford's Vignale high-performance division is beginning to make a dramatic entrance at showrooms across the UK. The first car to receive the luxury Vignale treatment is the Ford Mondeo Vignale, which will be available as both a saloon and an estate.
Classic estate style merges with distinctive premium features to make the Mondeo Vignale's appearance highly original. Jewel-shaped headlights arch back towards the raked windscreen, and the 18-inch alloy wheel designs are unique to the car. Yet another model-specific aspect of the design is the optional Vignale Nocciola paintwork, a smart blend of brown and grey. Using the many other shades and Ford accessories available, you can transform the Mondeo Vignale estate into a car that's more personal.
Vignale specifications go above the top-end Titanium X trim level offered with many other Ford cars. Enter the new Mondeo estate to be welcomed by a special greeting screen at the centre console. Seats are finished in precisely-cut leather, with added heating and massage functions in the front to enhance your comfort. Many of the trims and accents throughout the Mondeo Vignale have been hand-stitched, just one sign of the painstaking detail prevalent across the estate's interior.
Alongside a potent diesel engine, another option for the Vignale is an advanced petrol-electric hybrid power system. You can choose the estate as an all-wheel drive model, building on the turning and cornering power of high torque levels with a solid grip on the road. The 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel can push the Mondeo's efficiency to as much as 57.7mpg combined, and the hybrid further extends that to up to 67.3mpg. Running in full electric mode is silent and economical, ideal for shorter city journeys.
Push the Ford Power Starter Button just once and feel the Mondeo's strength awaken. The 0-60mph sprint takes no longer than ten seconds. In most cases, a six-speed automatic gearbox partners with your choice of engine – manual is optional dependent on the specification. Enjoy the smooth drive and the quieter cabin atmosphere created by Active Noise Control.
Extensive features and the original Mondeo's secure reputation result in an exacting standard of safety for the Vignale estate. Stability, traction and braking aids are all reassuring driver aids you can count on. So is Traffic Sign Recognition, which helps you to spot upcoming warnings and adjust your speed accordingly. Surrounding airbags ring the cabin, and secure childlocks are built into the rear doors.
Simplify driving with the support of Ford SYNC 2 with Emergency Assistance. This clever infotainment package adds to the safety, and likewise increases the in-car technology with Bluetooth® connectivity and voice commands. All menu screens and functions are presented on an eight-inch touchscreen, carefully placed to be quickly readable and minimise distractions.
