Ford is upgrading the Mondeo with a new range of engines to improve the car's performance and efficiency.

The EcoBoost petrol engine will be used for the first time in the Mondeo after its success in the S-MAX and Galaxy. As a result, CO2 emissions are down to 179g/km and a combined fuel economy of 36.6mpg.

The engine will have a maximum output of 200bhp, meaning a 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of over 144mph.

The 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel engine in the Ford Mondeo has also been revised, resulting in three more economical variations - 113bhp, 138bhp and 162bhp - each of which is capable of delivering 53mpg.

All three Ford Duratorq engines have maximum speeds of between 119.2 and 136.7mph and have 0-62mph sprint times of between 8.9 and 11.2 seconds.

Ford's Powershift dual-clutch gearbox will be a feature on EcoBoost models, but will only be available on the two more powerful diesel engines.

Prices for the Ford Mondeo EcoBoost models start from £22,095 with the Duratorq variations starting at £18,995.
