Ford Mondeo Vignale revealed - personalisation and added luxury for saloon

High-end Ford aimed at luxury market

Ford has revealed a new £29,045 version of the Mondeo. Called the Vignale, the car will be the most high-end model to sit in the Mondeo range.

Featuring an uprated interior that includes soft touch materials and massage functions for the front seats, the Vignale is quite a step up from the Titanium X trim level offered with the Mondeo.

Also included is a clever Active Noise Cancellation system for diesel models. The system is able to cancel out engine noise by emitting opposing sound frequencies, while insulation has been improved to keep refinement levels high.

Engine options range from a 178bhp 2-litre diesel, to a 237bhp 2-litre EcoBoost petrol. Set to come in both saloon and estate versions, the former is the only Vignale available with a 2-litre petrol electric hybrid, managing just 99g/km of CO2.

Visual tweaks to the Vignale's exterior include a revised grille and chrome detailing on the mirrors and door sills. 18-inch wheels are standard, as is metallic paint.

Aside from its sophisticated noise cancellation, other technical highlights include Park Assist, LED headlights, city braking and traffic sign recognition. A 12 speaker Sony sound system is also included.

Ford plans on adding further personalisation options to the car. Extra interior and cosmetic upgrades are set to be unveiled in May. Part of the ownership experience includes the ability to call on a personal relationship manager who can help with service collection and deliveries.

Plans to extend the Vignale range to the S-Max are also in place, with details on the new car set to be confirmed in late 2015.

Prices start at £29,045 for the 178bhp 2-litre Diesel saloon Vignale. Order books open in May, with deliveries expected in Summer.
