The fourth generation Ford Mondeo has been around since 2006 and is likely due for a facelift.

Here we have the first spy shots of the upcoming 2010 Mondeo wearing some camouflaging on the face to mask its changes. We don't get to see much but (one hopes) the extensive covering up means a substantially new look for the Mondeo.

It looks like there will be new front and rear bumpers as well as a new grill. Our photographer also notes that the taillights will be updated and feature LED lights.

Under the hood Ford may add improved versions of the Mondeo's current engine range - with increases in fuel efficiency and maybe an extra horsepower or two. An updating of the cabin finish is also expected. All very vague, yes, but there is still no news on this front.

The Mondeo was one of the first vehicles to feature Ford's new 'kinetic design' paradigm. One can expected the new face of the Mondeo to be looking a little more like recent models with Ford's current body styling such as the Kuga and the new Fiesta.

The facelifted Ford Mondeo will likely make its debut at the Geneva motor show in March of next year.
