The fifth-generation Ford Mondeo was introduced in China earlier this month and was on display in Shanghai. Not much to report on the Blue Oval’s flagship for the market, the big news being the global debut of the new four-cylinder 1.5 litre EcoBoost engine with the sedan in China.

The engine is set to go into the Fusion sedan in North America and also the European Mondeo. With 177 hp and 240 Nm to be seen in the Chinese-market Mondeo, the output is very close to the company’s current 1.6 litre EcoBoost lump (which has 180 hp and 250 Nm), but promises improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
