Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment and connectivity system is slowly making its way through the carmaker’s local range, and the Mondeo midsizer is the next to receive the upgrade.

Improvements include conversational voice recognition, a more responsive eight-inch touchscreen, faster performance and, according to Ford, an easier-to-understand graphic interface.

The third generation of the well-received system also includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Ford’s Applink system.

Ford calls the upgraded Mondeo a ‘2016.75’ model, and the SYNC 3 platform is now standard across the Mondeo range.

“The addition of SYNC 3 makes this outstanding vehicle an even more attractive choice,” Ford Australia CEO, Graeme Whickman, said.

“Sales of Mondeo powered by the 2.0 litre EcoBoost [engine] are up 62.5 percent year-on-year, as Australian families embrace its fuel efficient yet powerful engine technology, along with its high-tech features.”

Ford also pointed to Mondeo sales for the first half of 2016, saying the tally of 1464 units as of June 30 was up 122.5 percent on the first half of last year.

Besides SYNC 3, features for the updated Mondeo include Ford’s Emergency Assistance, adaptive LED headlamps, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control.

The ‘2016.75’ Ford Mondeo is on sale now, with prices unchanged and starting from $33,190 plus on-road costs.
