About Ford Contour
The Ford Contour is a car that has four doors. It is being offered as a variant of the first-generation Mondeo in the North American market. The European version also employs the CDW27 platform. However, this one is used in the United States version. The Ford Contour, in contrast to Ford's first "world car," has undergone some minor alterations so that it may more effectively fulfill the criteria of the US market. The body construction, engine, and suspension of the Contour, along with those of its sisters, are all constructed using the same fundamental parts.
Although the Contour is officially classified as a mid-size car, it is one of the smallest sedans in the segment. The model is powered by two engines: the 2.0-liter Zetec-4 with 125 hp and the 2.5-liter Duratec V6 with 170 hp. Both engines have a standard five-speed MT and an optional four-speed AT. It is one of the few cars in this segment with a sporty V6 and a five-speed automatic transmission. This means stiffer shock absorbers, wider tires, and four-wheel disc brakes. The models have rear hubs. Anti-lock brakes and traction control are optional parts on all models.

The MicronAir air filtration system is one of the standard parts on all ranges and protects passengers from pollen and dust. Such filtering systems are usually only found in luxury cars. Standard Ford Contour parts include transverse bars between the windscreen pillars, remote boot lid locking and filling, intermittent wipers, console with cup holders, and adjustable front seats. On all models except the Contour GL, the 60/40 split rear seatback folds forward and has an integrated armrest.
In 1998, the brand redesigned the Contour. The new design was based on the Mondeo introduced in Europe two years earlier. Ford also launched the SVT version of the car, equipped with a specially adapted and modified version of the 2.5L 195 hp V6 engine. The Contour SVT also received a new body, new seats and interior, white-painted instrument panels, larger wheels with ultra-fast tires, improved suspension, and upgraded brakes. The Contour SVT was available as a special edition from Ford dealers.
