New Ford Mondeo Resale Value to be More than its German Luxury Rivals

28th November 2014

The all new Ford Mondeo is set to hold more value after three years than luxury models such as the Audi A4, and BMW 3 Series according to CAP Automotive. The CAP Gold Book which delivers market-leading future residual values said it expects the new Mondeo to be worth around £1,750 more after three years than the previous Mondeo model was.

CAP Automotive who are experts in used car pricing have said according to their Gold Book a Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi ECOnetic Zetec will hold onto 42.7% of its new list price, after three years and 30,000 miles on the clock. That compares with 38.3% for a diesel Audi A4 2.0 TDIe SE, 36.8% for a BMW 3 Series 318d SE and 41.6% for a Volkswagen Passat 2.0 TDI Bluemotion Tech Executive.

As for the petrol Mondeo 1.5 EcoBoost Zetec with around 60,000 miles on the clock the returns will be worth 36.1% of its new list price, beating an Audi A4 1.8T FSI 170 SE's 31.4%, a BMW 320i SE's 32.3% and a Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSI 160 Executive's 31.5%.

CAP has praised Ford saying that these new figures for the new Mondeo 'represent a milestone in Ford's design and engineering history.

Dylan Setterfield, head of forecasting at CAP, said: 'The new Mondeo is anything but ordinary and its sheer good looks are a big contributor to such strong expected value retention as a used car in three years. 'It's a winner inside too, with premium fit and finish, but the engineering underpinning the whole package is also excellent. The old Mondeo was a fine drive and hard to improve on but the new version offers an even more comfortable experience.

Speaking of the Mondeo's EcoBoost and ECOnetci engines Setterfield said: 'Ford's EcoBoost and ECOnetic engines are even better in their new versions. Imagine being told five years ago that in 2014 a 1.5 litre petrol engine in a large family car would give you 160bhp of poke and 50mpg, but that is today's reality.'
