While most of us in North America were asleep, a European outlet by the name of Coche Actual published what appears to be an official shot of the Ford Mondeo concept that will be seen at the Paris Motor Show next week. The concept is in wagon form, but we're likely to see the production version of both the sedan and wagon at next year's Geneva Motor Show. Built on the same platform as the new S-Max and Galaxy, the Mondeo is expected to be a class leader in the handling department and will share engines with its MPV brethren. This means the Mondeo should be available with a 145-hp, 2.0-liter and a 220-hp, 2.5-liter turbo, along with at least one diesel option. The Mondeo concept's design is a pleasure to behold, with a face that's nearly a carbon copy of the Iosis concept we first saw at the 2005 Frankfurt show. Can't wait to see this one in person.
