    Doubtful. Sedans never sold because they were never pushed, and in comparison the boot space in the hatch / wagon smashes the Mondeo sedan.

    However I can't see too many Falcon sedan buyers buying a Mondeo.... A tricked up Fusion sedan on the other hand could potentially pick up some of the Falcons void.

    And yes i get that they are the same car... Im talking purely from a naming / marketing perspective.

    I'm guessing Ford Marketing see no future demand for a C/D platform Sedan in Australia hence why they killed off Falcon and only offer a Hatch instead of a true Sedan in Mondeo?

    To be honest the Hatch is basically a Sedan anyway.
    My Falcon family heritage: XY V8 Falcon 500, XYGT, XBGT, XC 351 GS, XD 4.1 Spack, EF wagon, AU Wagon, AU2 Wagon, AU2 XR8, BA XR8, BF XR8, FG XR6, Lucky last: Sprint 8. Oh wait, AU3 XLS Marlin Ute!
