Interesting, about to buy the misso a Focus Trend or Sport with the auto, am looking forward to driving one and seeing how it goes.

Not many people rave on about the dual clutch auto.

If its petrol it will have the 6dct250 which is a dual dry clutch box, they had early issues with solid input shaft seals leaking and contaminating the clutch plates but havent done one in a while, they are a good box but have a couple of nvh issues which are normal and if more than one person drives it they can feel like crap, very adaptable and driving style dependant box

And they are not really an auto, they are an automatically shifted manual twin clutch box

yeah looking at a petrol. Had a look at several today at Q Ford but didn't drive one, might take one for a steer in the coming days.

Hopefully the missus and I like it, otherwise its the i30 or mazda 3 - I prefer the Focus though (on paper and based on a static viewing anyway).

Mum's got the latest focus with the 6spd auto and it is a funny feeling box at 1st. I think it drives fine but it takes a bit to get used to. Quite a sluggish car too but I'm sure the Mondeo would be a bit better.

I am on my second one now and have had no trouble with either of them, great little car with good power and excellent fuel economy even when you get into them. I have it as my work car and do about 7,000 ks a month.

Revive an old thread.

2.0L TDCI Mondeo.

Euro threads talk about running an exhaust system with no Cat.

Mentioned the emissions for Diesels primarily look for soot volume in exhaust.

Not to sure on Aussie requirements.

Any thoughts around this?

I got the Mrs a 2011 Titanium Ecoboost with all the bells and whistles for $24k with 17000km on it... best buy ever! She loves it, and it's luxury and trinkets all the way!... I must say the dual clutch is a blessing compared to the way our FJ Cruised shifted, lol.

I want to tune it, but can't fint ANY info or tuning kits for them.

There are a few of versions of 2L TDCi in the Mondeo depending on what model you look at:

- MA Mondeo had a 96kw/320Nm diesel with a torque converter auto.

- MB Mondeo had a 103kw/320Nm diesel with a torque converter auto.

- MB MY11 Mondeo to current MC have a 120kw/340Nm diesel with the Powershift wet dual-clutch 6 speed.

We have a new Kuga with the same 120kw/340Nm diesel and the Powershift wet dual-clutch 6 speed. Great little engine and the gearbox is is awesome. The Powershift is not as smooth as a converter auto in slow speed up/down hill driving such as carparks but once on the move its supper smooth. Also the wet clutch powershift in the diesel is a lot better than the dry clutch version int he petrol models. The engine has minimal turbo lag and goes very good, much better then what the power figures would suggest. Also averages 6.6-6.8L per 100km. Kuga is heavier than the Mondeo so it should be event better in the Mondeo.

Another option is the EcoBoost 2L in the MC Mondeo. Drove one as loan car a year ago and was bloody impressed with how well it drove.

Power and torque are very average for an engine that size. The korean(Kia-Hyundia) diesels are crapping all over the offerings from the japs and bettering most Euro,s

Googling to see how accurate that statement is. Can neither confirm or deny at this time.

Mazda diesel is good though...

Kia Sportage 1995cc 135kw 392nm

Kia Sorrento 2199cc 145kw 421nm

Hyundia variants have same engines and power

Yes true the Korean offerings have more power on paper, but drive them back to back and there is not that much difference if any. Plus they also all drive and feel like sh!t to be honest.

But this is all useless to the OP as non of them offer as diesel sedan or wagon that compared to the Mondeo.
