Apart from offering an upmarket product, Ford also wants to provide its Vignale customers with a better showroom experience. The sub-brand will have a dedicated lounge, contact persons at the dealerships and there are even a number of exclusive concierge style services for prospective customers.

The Mondeo Vignale will be the first model in this line and is expected to be followed by the next iterations of the S-Max and the Edge. The concept is differentiated from the regular Mondeo by means of a chrome finished grille, new ornately appointed front bumper with chrome secondary air dam meshes and LED foglights.

      Oh yes. More than calling the design an inspiration, it borders on a cheap lift and can be called a copy of Jaguar with an Aston Martin grill. 🙁
