About Ford Mondeo

The Ford Mondeo is a large family car manufactured by Ford since 1993. The first Ford declared a “world car”, the Mondeo was intended to consolidate several Ford model lines worldwide (the European Ford Sierra, the Ford Telstar in Asia and Australia, and the Ford Tempo/Mercury Topaz of North America). The Mondeo nameplate is derived from Latin mundus, meaning “world”.

For its first two generations, the Ford Mondeo was produced using the Ford CDW27 platform, with the third generation shifting to the EUCD platform. The fourth (current) generation uses the Ford CD4 platform (the first car to do so).

Due to declining sales and a growing trend towards SUV-Crossovers over sedans, Ford plans to discontinue the Mondeo in March 2022 with no direct successor. (Source Wiki)
