It’s happening now: the Mk2 Mondeo is slipping away.
Ever since I showed a Mitsubishi Galant (last version) I have wanted a good, clear photo of a Mk2 Mondeo for comparison. They’ve been thin on the ground and most have been hatchbacks or estates. This can be interpretted as the fact they are being taken out of circulation. This banal photo shows a rarity in the making. The last ones are reaching 160,000 miles and ending their planned service life.
This photo is here because I could not find a straight side view on the web that I liked. It’s a tidy V6 model with a cloth interior, seen in Kolding, Denmark.
This version is the best of the four so far, a great example of solid, democratic design. At the time it came out writers likened it to the Passat. It is not a resemblance I can see.
