The 2010 Moscow Motor Show that will get underway on August 25 will see Ford Europe bringing in a fresh version of the Mondeo. The updated version would come with a new look exterior and interiors. It would also sport new high-efficiency EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel powertrains.

Being currently built in Moscow and Germany and China too, the new updated Ford Mondeo is being tipped to be the smartest, safest and greenest Mondeo ever. The car will be the last in the line of the CD segment range for the current year.

Add-ons would include new front bumpers that sport LED daytime running lights. The move is part of adhering to the new EU norm that makes DRLs mandatory. The rear lamps are also being redesigned with LEDs. A high-performing 240PS version of the two-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine, would come with the new updated Mondeo. This will be in addition to the 203PS version launched earlier this year. A variant will sport an updated 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine with power up 12 per cent to 200 PS. Ford Europe is also revamping the interior with new flow-through centre console, new door trims and a new central overhead console that comes with ambient lighting. A six-speed PowerShift double wet-clutch transmission system would be a standard feature.

Other aspects about the updated Mondeo will include a smart regenerative charging, eco mode and new active grille shutter system. Besides, an electronically controlled device that regulates the airflow through the radiator and engine box so that it cuts down on the aerodynamic drag and boosts fuel efficiency would be part of the package.
