    Default Ford Mondeo XR5 Turbo: The Surprising All-Rounder.


    If you had to choose only one car to do everything, you’d be hard pressed to go pass the Ford Mondeo XR5 Turbo. Released in 2008, it featured a Volvo sourced, turbocharged inline five engine, pumping out 162kW through the front wheels. Only available with a manual six-speed gearbox, it’s a car for enthusiasts who enjoy driving. Thanks to its fantastic chassis and uprated suspension, the Mondeo is a joy in corners, while providing a comfortable, cossetting ride.

    The Mondeo XR5 Turbo is sleek and svelte inside and out, the understated styling belying the potent power under the hood. Inside, a mix of black suede and leather adorn the seats and interior trim, and the XR5 is fitted with all the comforts and technology to make daily commuting easy. It’s quite spacious too, swallowing five regular sized adults with ease.

    Blessed with a braked towing capacity of 1600kg, the Mondeo XR5 isn’t afraid to roll up its sleeves and get to work. Towing a small camping trailer is easy peasy for the Mondeo XR5, and with its spacious and well-appointed interior, the whole family can go away on weekends easily.

    With such well-rounded capabilities, the Bendix Heavy Duty perfectly suits the Mondeo’s driving style and needs. The Heavy Duty brake pads are engineered to provide strong braking performance, even when towing or carrying heavy loads. The consistent pedal feel and better stopping power allows the XR5 Turbo to shine on windy roads too. The Heavy Duty brake pads also come with an exclusive insulation layer between the friction material and backing plate, to increase brake rotor life by lowering heat build-up.
