The Mondeo fares well in the safety stakes - the body is highly rigid, and it features a collapsible pedal structure, adaptive dual-stage front airbags, deploying front head restraints, three-point inertia reel seatbelts in all seating positions and ISO-Fix child seat attachment points.

He had to go through the trouble of filing a court case- Back to the car- a beautiful piece of work and excellent ride and comfort.
If I were to compare the handling characteristics of the car and the lovely ride- if you see the car glide on the road - and you are in an ol’ lemon maruti driving behind the Mondeo - the visual effect is enough to convince you to buy one.
