Motorway lovers... fancy a Ford Mondeo Zetec 1.6 EcoBoost more than a private lane on the M25? If so, check-out its manufacturer's personal contract purchase plan. Terms include a £4,883.43 deposit, followed by twenty-four monthly payments of £319. Throughout this period, motorists have a mileage allowance of 9,000 per-annum. Any excesses are charged at 9.6 pence per-mile. At the end of the term there are three options. One, pay the £6,972 purchase fee to own the vehicle outright. This – with interest and other charges – totals £19,521.43. Option two is to return the car like a naff motorway map. There should be nothing else to pay, subject to any mileage excess and condition. Option three is to trade-in.The Ford Mondeo Zetec 1.6 EcoBoost is a tremendous motorway cruiser. Why? Because It has a comfortable ride, for starters, plus supportive seats and a spacious cabin. This complements the rock-solid handling and sensible running costs. As such, this long distance cruiser feels totally composed, and averages 44.1mpg. This rises to a pleasing 52.3mpg on the extra-urban cycle. Not bad for 160PS petrol powered workhorse that hits 62mph in a speedy 9.3 seconds. The Mondeo also has plenty of equipment to make life pleasant on the M3. This includes cruise control, Bluetooth, a CD player, electronic stability programme, climate control, and a start/top system. This saves fuel, so those endless motorway traffic jams feel slightly less tedious. Okay, maybe not. Long live the Ford Mondeo.
