Fiesta and new Mondeo responsible for sales increase at Washington

Posted on 22 Jan 2007

Jennings Ford has reported an increase in sales at the Group’s Parsons Road dealership in Washington.

In addition to the Ford Fiesta model continuing to be the nation’s favourite car, the all-new Ford Mondeo, which made its debut appearance in the latest James Bond film, ‘Casino Royale’, has been leaving motorists across Wearside, a little shaken and stirred.

Gary Smith, sales manager at Jennings Ford in Washington, said;

“In addition to the Fiesta continuing to be the number one choice for motorists, the all-new Mondeo has generated a positive response with seven models already sold and delivered to customers.”

Available in four specifications, including the Mondeo Edge, Zetec, Ghia, Titanium X and three bodystyles – saloon, hatchback and estate, the all-new Ford Mondeo also benefits from £700 worth of added equipment across the range including: Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Thatcham Category 1 Alarm, ISOFIX child-seat fixings, steering wheel controls for the key vehicles technologies, driver’s knee bag, ‘follow me home’ lighting and unique to Ford – Easyfuel. This clever new feature prevents drivers putting petrol into a diesel powered car or vice-versa. It is estimated this accidental mis-fueling affects over 150,000 UK drivers each year.

The Ford Mondeo Edge has replaced the LX series and in addition to the new standard equipment, the Edge also boasts – air conditioning, cruise control, leather steering wheel, CD stereo with MP3 connection socket, seven air-bags, ABS with Electronic Brake Assist (EBA), power front windows, remote central locking, quick clear heated front windscreen, power and heated door mirrors.

Other vehicles in the Ford range still proving popular with customers include the Ka, Focus, Mondeo, C-Max, S-Max and Galaxy. In addition there is also the Ford Focus Coupé Cabriolet, which was launched in January 2007.
