Hatch

LX - $30,540
LX TDCi - $34,540 - New model
$4,000 !!!more for diesel

Zetec - $35,740
Zetec TDCi - $39,240
$3500 more for diesel

Titanium - $42,740
Titanium TDCi - $46,240
$3500 more for diesel

so PowerShift is standard then across the range reports was that it was a cost option on the diesel models hmm I think because of the Turbocharge petrol engine missing from the line up Ford tossed in the PowerShift?

The performance figures for the new diesel are very impressive. The only downside is the price premium, no doubt not helped by the Powershift box. Any chance of a manual box, Ford?

And I'll bet the Ecoboost petrol will not be sold in Oz. Might be time for a trip to the local Ford dealer to see what's planned for NZ.

PS Can't help noticing how the diesel wagon was released following the demise of the Falcon wagon. We've had it in NZ for 2 years now.

Another source, probably same story...
http://ninemsn.carpoint.com.au/news/...eo-range-19311

So it's an upgraded 2.0L diesel, not the 2.2L, 400Nm beast previewed in the Mondeo wagon at the motor show a year or two ago?

That's a relief, otherwise I might have had to upgrade... ;)

Interesting.

There's two I'm interested in Titanium diesel wagon or hatch.

Already have the TDCi with all mod cons, but the extra space might be good.

So for me, I've got to stump up either $46,240 for the hatch or $47,740 for the wagon. Before on roads, so add probably another $2K onto those prices (is that about right?). Looking like $48K hatch or $51K wagon. Getting up there.

I have a child and probably another on the way (when I upgrade in Jan), so that means I can't lay the seats down unless I take out child seats which I am loathe to do.

So (SAE/ISO), seats up hatch: 816 / 528
Seats up wagon: 1005 / 542
Difference: SAE - 189, ISO - 14.

Question is, is the extra space worth the extra cost of the wagon over the hatch?

Will the sunroof still be standard on the hatch? There's no talk of it with the wagon.

I don't think that there's any difference in floor area between the hatch and wagon. The extra space will probably be due to the wider tailgate opening.

Of course, you can always get more in a wagon because your load can be above the window line. For example, I can easily carry a decent size Christmas tree in my wagon, which I wouldn't want to try with a hatch.

Dusty... go the wagon, its really not much more to pay. I have two kids now and with two prams and shopping etc, the wagon's larger boot height space and no lip really does help. Plus the wagon looks great, its got a nicer shape than the hatch... just my opinon.

Agreed, not having a lip really helps. Plus the wagon tailgate gives you much more protection from the rain.

I'm happy to look at the wagon, and it would be my preferred vehicle. Without a cargo barrier in place, I don't like the idea of stacking to the roof.

I like the idea of no lip to get stuff over, although that might encourage the drag across and not the lift over (like the deck of the closed hatch is a handy place to leave the handbag). I've got one of those pull out bumper protectors, and surprise!, I'm the only one who's used it.

For the price of the wagon, close to $50K, I could get a Skoda Octavia RS wagon, or even stump up for a *prepare for backlash* a Kia Sorrento Platinum. Re-sale doesn't really worry me as I lease.

Anyone know if the sunroof will still be standard on both the hatch and the wagon? I love my sunroof.

I assume the sunroof will be standard on the Titanium only. You can get sunroof on the MB Zetec for now.

Does it take headroom space inside the car?

I'm just on six foot, and the sunroof would lower the roof by 50 mm or so. Maybe a bit more. My head would probably be a couple of centimetres from the roof now. I have the seat all the way down, and back a bit.

I have it tilted open probably the majority of times. And the cover is always back except when it's really hot, when I will still have it tilted open.

I'm 6'2" and I haven't had any issues with headroom under my sunroof. Granted the seat is set back and low, but I still do adjust the seat height once in a while and it's fine.

Cheers.

Wagon would be the go, and dont forget, fleet pricing will bring that down substantially, as it will for all brands... I got my pajero 12 months ago, for about $16k off list price... I know my old man just got a Territory Ghia for about 15-20% off RRP, although imported vehicles have a lot less margin to play with than australian made....

How do I get fleet pricing? My lease is a personal one, and I salary sacrifice for it, and it's not tied up with anything else. When I left my previous position, I was novating it, but did so for three months, then it reverted to a straight lease between me and the leasing company.

I have a mate who works at Ford, so I could get Family and Friends, but they only offer that on Australian made cars I think.

I appreciate your post is a month old now, so I'm sure you've pick this up already, but the above is not actually correct.

The powershift is standard on the diesel models. So if you select the optional diesel engine, the Powershift comes standard.

Alternatively, it's an option on the petrol LX, Zetec or Titanium hatch, and the LX and Zetec petrol wagons.
