Ford Europe is expanding its range of sport-styled “ST-Line” models with a new Ford Mondeo ST-Line, revealed today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Ford Mondeo ST-Line joins the Fiesta and Focus ST-Line models in offering European buyers the sporty appearance and suspension of a Ford Performance car, paired with the usual, fuel-efficient range of petrol and diesel engines. The ST-Line treatment will be available on each of the Mondeo’s three body styles in Europe: four-door, five-door, and wagon.

“The new Mondeo ST-Line is our sportiest Mondeo since we introduced the Mondeo ST220 model in 2002,” says Ford Europe VP of Marketing, Sales & Service Roelant de Waard. “Mondeo ST-Line adds another dimension to the broad Mondeo line-up that offers options from the fuel-efficient Mondeo ECOnetic and Mondeo Hybrid models, to the exclusive and upscale Mondeo Vignale.”

The new Ford Mondeo ST-Line rides on a set of unique 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels; the smaller rims feature a bright, machined surface, versus the larger rims’ Rock Metallic Gray finish. A roof-mounted rear spoiler comes standard on the wagon body style, and is optional on the 5-door. The upper and lower grilles feature a high-gloss honeycomb pattern, and the body-color chin spoiler, side skirts, and rear bumper have all been redesigned for a sportier appearance.

Inside the Ford Mondeo ST-Line, the sporty cues continue with sport seats clad in either cloth or partial leather with red stitching, a perforated-leather sport steering wheel, and a sport gear knob on manual transmission-equipped cars. Special “ST-Line” scuff plates and exterior badges can be found throughout.

As for engines, the Ford Mondeo ST-Line can be had with a 160-horsepower, 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, or a 2.0-liter EcoBoost tuned to produce either 200 or 240 horsepower. The former is available with a 6-speed manual transmission. Diesel options are limited to a range of 2.0-liter TDCi mills, tuned to produce 150, 180, or 210 horsepower. Only the latter of these is not available with a manual transmission.

The Ford Mondeo ST-Line will offer the regular Mondeo’s available Intelligent AWD system.

“With our new ST-Line range even more customers can experience sporty style and driving dynamics inspired by our most exciting Ford Performance line-up ever, that includes models such as the Focus RS, new Fiesta ST200 and Ford GT supercar” Roelant de Waard said. “This year we expect to sell 40,000 performance cars in Europe, a 50 percent increase compared with 2015, which in turn saw performance car sales rise by 61 percent compared with 2014.”
