As development of the 2011 Ford Mondeo continues, speculation is growing as to how well the latest evolution of Ford's 'Kinetic' design language will translate to the older-generation Mondeo body.

The most recent batch of spy photos of a 2011 Mondeo test car had camouflaging extending across the boot-lid section, suggesting a rear-end tweak and new tail-lights will join the front-end facelift.

It's hard to discern any major details underneath the black taping on this prototype's nose and rear, but it's clear that the upper grille has been narrowed, while the bumper intakes are likely to take on styling more in-line with the 2011 Focus.

Our new rendering (top of article) offers a glimpse at how the updated Mondeo might be styled, with inspiration drawn from the new Focus.

Powertrain details for the updated Mondeo are scant, however the current-generation 2010 Mondeo has recently gained Ford's ecoboost four-cylinder petrol engine in Europe, and an updated TDCi engine will appear in Australia later this year.

Market launch dates are still a secret, but expect the facelifted Ford Mondeo to surface internationally later this year.
