The Falcon wasn't Ford's only decently sized sedan. The Mondeo launched in Australia in 1995, and it's currently offered in various guises, including a sedan, fastback and a station wagon, in petrol and diesel front-wheel-drive versions.
Its main competitor is the Toyota Camry, but the Mondeo is priced and positioned higher than the fleet-friendly Toyota. Current prices range from $33,190 for the Mondeo Ambiente to $49,840 for the Mondeo Titanium TDCi.
Partly as a result of people looking to SUVs rather than sedans, and partly due to its relatively high price compared to its competition, the Mondeo has struggled to gain sales traction in recent years.
This vehicle is also known as Ford Contour (North America), Ford Taurus (North America), Ford Fusion (Americas).
