About Mercury Mystique
The Mercury Mystique was one of the first-generation models of the Ford Mondeo models. It was a rebadged variant of the Ford Contour for the North American dealers. It came out to the market in 1994 for the 1995 model year. It was a 4-door sedan. The Mercury Mystique was aimed to replace the role of the Ford Tempo and the Mercury Topaz. The Ford CDW27 platform was shared by the model with other Ford models including the Ford Contour. The platform was not the only thing they shared, standard parts like the major systems were also on their list of sharing, including powertrain parts, body structure parts, and suspension. The assembly lines were at the Kansas City Assembly which was located in Claycomo, Missouri, and the Cuautitlan Assembly which was located in Cuautitlan Izcalli, Mexico.
The Mercury Mystique was a mid-size sedan, but it was still seen as one of the smallest vehicles that the company have provided to the market. A 2.0L Zetec inline 4-cylinder engine was provided for the Mystique while producing an output of 125 horsepower. The model was also given a 5-speed manual transmission as the standard equipment. Customers could also choose another 2.5L Duratec V6 engine that could offer the automobile 170 horsepower. The transmission could also be chosen for an additional 4-speed automatic one.
