The Ford Contour is the North American version of the Ford Mondeo, only more comfortable.
I say this because I actually own one (a Contour) and that last time I went to the UK I actually rented a Ford Mondeo.
Both cars are rather bland with that so-called "bio" look, but they do perform well and gives a good ride, even at high speed.
Most Mondeo in the UK are 2 volumes (hatch-back) and all Contour are 3 volumes (sedan). It is a mid-size car and I wonder; Is this a descendant of the Ford Prefect?
