TTAC Photochop: Ford Mondeo 4-Door "Coupe"

ttac photochop ford mondeo 4 door coupe

The four-door coupe niche is really catching on. After VW's entry into the chop-top genre, Ford is set to present an [almost] low-cost version of the "eye candy sedan." Naturally, I'd like it to be what the current Mondeo could have been when I first saw the Iosis concept. And I expect it to be what the current Mondeo isn't: exciting. I was extremely disappointed when FoMoCo released the Mondeo sedan. Why would they say they were going to base the four-door's design on that stunning concept and then… you know? The only cool thing about Mondeo is that Bond drove it for a while. Actually it wasn't that cool; looking back at the scenes, it was kind of boring. Anyway, back to the four-door coupe: four individual seats, frame-less doors, high-tech lights (but not Iosis-droopy) and some genuine sex-appeal. Done.

    Nice work, Andrei, The only criticism I have is that these FWD CLS copies look nose-heavy. The Passat CC has the same problem. While I think this class of vehicle is attractive, I wonder just how many people have $50K for what is essentially a pretty midsized sedan with less headroom. Is it really worth double what an Accord costs?

    Andrei, might I recommend a good aesthetics therapist? The Mondeo is a pretty striking design, and I have a tough time thinking of any production vehicle with four doors that resonates so well.

    IF IT HAS MORE THAN TWO DOORS, IT ISN'T A COUPE!!! Sorry, but I wish people would stop abusing the English language like this.
