    Same floor pan as a Mondeo. However, when I tried an X Type I was too tall for it., even with the seats in the lower position. If you fit, it’s probably good though.

    You must be a giant, as I’m 6’2″ and have plenty of room in mine.

    All bits are now avaiable cheap, for example rear discs and pads for £34 delivered.

    tbh I’ve only one because it was cheap, as in £1100 for a saloon AWD 3.0i. But good, fast, quite and comfortable.

    Im 6’0 and had one as a courtesy car for a few days. Older one 04ish.. I put the seat as low as it went and had trouble with height. My head hitting the roof. Drove like a gem though.

    Well I’m only 5’6″ so I should be ok!
    I imagine economy would similar to the Mondeo?

    30ish mpg on the 2.1 petrol I used.. with slightly heavy foot.

    For biking & stuff? Looking at the diesel versions but know nowt about them.
    There’s a 2.2 Sport Estate with 70K on Fleabay which looks good but do they have much roominess? (also watching a nice Mondeo)
    Ta.

    28mpg with a 3.0i saloon over the last 10k.

    I looked at them when I got my Mondeo. The boot space isn’t quite as usable due to arch intrusion, also the only diesel was the 2.0 5 speed when I looked and the Mondeo had the 6 speed box as well as more to pick from.
    Plenty of interchangeable parts between them, I still have a second set of wheels left over from the Mondeo that are from an X-type.
