Performance could be better
When people ask me what do I drive, as they do!, I say, "Just a Mondeo". Conversation usually ends there, but I always inwardly smile and laugh inwardly at the Audi or BMW driver before me. This is because Ford Mondeo drivers have a secret weapon and it is the ST200. Do Not confuse this Wolf in Sheep's, with the inferior ST24. In glorious anonymity this only comes in Beautiful Blue turns heads with its Styling, not many around, excellent residual value.
Growling V6 2.4 ltr. 201 bhp just a little slower that other faceless Asian performance Cars, but dismiss it over these at your peril because it is quite magnificent into corners. When I first drove it I was reminded of a go-kart the grip is that good.
Better news is that an ST225 is on the way to make up for the ST200 very small list of shortcomings.
