Ford Mondeo Vignale, the latest trim level or luxury interpretation from Ford, basically a luxury Ford. It is only available for the new Mondeo at the moment but rumour has it, the Vignale line will be available with the Ford Kuga as well.
What is Vignale?
Basically, it’s a luxury trim level that actually lives up to the title. Ford has included designer touches to the interior leather work with unique patterns that resemble the front grille. Talking of the front grille, the Vignale model’s features a unique design. Additionally, the highly polished wheels create a distinct look, which I am not a fan of.
What about the engine?
As I understand it, you can only get with 2-lt diesel and petrol engines. If you are planning to buy the state-of-art 1-lt petrol engine powered Mondeo, you can’t get the Vignale. In my view that’s a mistake; the 1-lt petrol engine is an engineering piece that definitely fits the luxury Vignale vision.
Luxury Ford Products?
Yes, Vignale has designed a line of accessories as well, such as an €850 handbag. But I really wonder who is going to buy this instead of a Louis Vuitton bag!
I really like the Ford Mondeo Vignale. It offers high quality interior craftsmanship, which should have been included years before, so I hope Ford will keep Vignale for its future models. Rest assured, you will get the same driving experience with the Vignale Mondeo model, despite a lack of headroom at the rear. But this is still a great car!
