Priced from £19,895, the Ford Mondeo 1.6 TDCi comes as standard with Bluetooth, cruise control and Easy Fuel, preventing misfuelling.
In the 2011 What Car? Green Awards, the Ford Mondeo 106 litre TDCi has been named the greenest family car, offering 65.6mpg and 114g/km.
What Car? editor in chief Chas Hallett said: "Ford has done great things to the Mondeo. The award-winning 1.6 TDCi is the best green family car, being both a brilliant all-rounder and remarkably eco-friendly with its low CO2 rating of 114g/km.
"The judging team praised its supple and controlled ride, lively chassis and perfectly weighted steering."
Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain managing director, said: "Thanks to impressive fuel economy, Ford has an outstanding low-carbon vehicle line-up which combines design style, technology and affordability. This Ford Mondeo's UK-built 1.6 diesel engine is an extraordinary combination of performance and low CO2 and is available across the range from Fiesta to Galaxy."
The Ford Mondeo's 114g/km and 65.6mpg means the road tax for the first year, and £30 from year two onwards.
