I know it ain't going to happen, but my wish for this very delayed Mondeo is to insert the S-Max Concept interior design language in this car
before it hits the showrooms here late (very late) next year.
This is what I feel is more acceptable for this market
imho
there's a good chance the Mondeo WILL get the new interior when it finally goes into production

Our Mondeo has been delayed for so long because the Assembly plant is being closed.
Ford is in the process of getting the new line set up at Almussafes, Valencia Spain plant, with a start of production for September 2014 for the Mondeo, and the S-Max and Galaxy sometime in 2015

Why was this delayed so long?? I would have thought the UK version should have been released along with the Fusion, especially since it is styled closer to what they have, then what we had.

They really need to do a quick interior redo. The S-max low profile stick shift, sleeker console, and more modern steering wheel should all be incorporated into the Mondeo.

I prefer it to the MKZ, personally. But if Ford is serious about saving Lincoln it should never come here.

Re: New Mondeo Upscale Sub-Brand in Europe

The Vignale is a great idea for moving Ford upmarket in Europe, short of using a global RWD platform for a future Mustang/Falcon/Granada. It's a name that still carries a bit of weight over there because of the coachbuilding connotations, and it also retains some Aston styling cues up front that would probably resonate better with Eurpoean tastes than the current Lincoln styling language. IMO it would be a bad idea to bring to North America, for precisely the same reasons.

Re: New Mondeo Upscale Sub-Brand in Europe

I'm so torn on Fusion vs. MKZ. I love the design and features of the MKZ, but the Fusion just seems to fit better. I'm not sure if it's the inch or two difference in various dimensions, but I felt more comfortable behind the wheel of the Fusion than the MKZ. I wish they would offer the upgraded trim and headlights on the Fusion that they offer on the Mondeo, and it would make the decision much easier.

Bright colors really accentuate the body lines.
