Hey guy's just went down to the local Ford dealership and had a look at the new Mondeo, it looks just as good in the flesh as it does in the pictures.

Regarding size I don't think think it looks that big to challenge the Falcon though the interior trim is way beyond what I have seen in any previous Ford, it looks solid like a beefed up BMW. The door handles are of classy looking brushed aluminium and the interior colour is a dark black. It was the mid-spec model I saw - Zetec Hatchback.

The back of the car sort of looks like a Cougar from close up, overall it still looks a bit compact though good looking.

Crying yet you Aussies?:D
