Volvo issues vehicle recall over fire risk

Nearly 70,000 Volvo cars in the UK are being recalled over a fire risk related to an engine problem, the manufacturer said.
 

Ford has reduced its Mondeo range from seven to five models, trying to maintain sales in the face of the never-ending growth of SUVs at the expense of large saloons.

With 85% of Mondeo sales going to business users as company or lease vehicles, Ford has paid particular attention to reducing Benefit in Kind (BIK) tax liabilities, with reduced prices across the range.

On-road prices have been reduced by £2,500 on the entry-level Zetec Edition model up to £3,000 on the top-spec Vignale. Ford claims that this will save company car drivers of up to £240 per year, plus a £300 saving on an employer’s fleet National Insurance costs.

The price and specification revisions have also meant that finance and leasing prices remain competitive, with average lease prices remaining at current levels despite added equipment in each model.

   

The Mondeo range now starts with the Zetec Edition model AT £19,445 on-road, and then branches in either a more sporting direction (ST-Line and ST-Line Edition) or a more luxurious direction (Titanium Edition and Vignale). The ST-Line Edition and Titanium Edition models are new additions, while the Vignale flagship now incorporates the previously-optional Nero appearance pack. This includes dark-tinted 19-inch alloy wheels and dark chrome trim.

There are no mechanical updates, so the 2018 Mondeos will be the same as the current-spec cars to drive. First deliveries of the upgraded models should start in November.
