Ford has been steadily revamping its lineup in Europe, with the Focus and Mondeo standing as two of the centerpiece models. Not only are these two models popular among fleet customers, but models like the Fiesta, Transit, Tourneo, and Ranger provide an even greater depth of variety for business owners.
“Ford’s renewed cars and vans—from Fiesta to Transit—have caught the eye of fleets and the discerning business car user and drawn even more of them to our range,” said Nick Themistocleous, Ford Britain fleet director. “Fleet News and its readers have endorsed Ford Mondeo and Focus as their stars, which Ford, its dealers and fleet partners thank them for.”
