The trio shares the same architecture.

Ford has introduced a series of minor updates for three of its European models, sharing the same platform – the Mondeo, S-Max, and Galaxy. The engineers of the company have fine-tuned the engine software of the 2.0-liter TDCi diesel engine of the trio in both the 150 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 180 hp versions (132 kW). When mated to a six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission, the engine emits reduced CO2 emissions by up to seven percent.

Speaking in numbers, the Mondeo returns an average 61.4 miles per gallon (4.6 liters per 100 kilometers), while the slightly bigger S-Max averages 56.5 mpg (5.0 l/100 km). The biggest member of the trio, the Galaxy, has an average fuel consumption of 54.3 mpg (5.2 l/100 km).

The Blue oval’s four-cylinder diesel now features an optimized engine block, cylinder head, and fuel injection designs, also gaining a lean NOX trap exhaust after-treatment system.

The latest SYNC 3 infotainment system is the other major update for the Mondeo, S-Max, and Galaxy. It delivers “faster performance” and “simplified commands”, and also supports five additional languages. The SYNC 3 operates through an eight-screen touchscreen display that recognizes pinch and swipe gestures.
