The All New Ford Kuga is an attractive and solidly-built vehicle that features a large boot and good levels of standard equipment. This accomplished mid-size SUV comes in three trim levels: Zetec, Titanium and ST-Line.
The crisply-styled Kuga boasts a number stylish exterior features, including 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. The vehicle looks extremely smart in its standard Race Red livery. The vehicle can be customised, however, from a number of other eye-catching colours, such as Deep Impact Blue, Copper Pulse, Frozen White and Shadow Black – all available as options. Illumination includes front fog lamps, and the vehicle is fitted with a Quickclear heated windscreen.
A five-person cabin includes sports seats, and the driving position offers lumbar adjustability. The driver also gets to grip a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear shift knob, and a simple press of Ford’s Power Starter button ignites the Kuga’s engine.
The vehicle’s minimum-capacity 442-litre boot offers more space than that provided by, for example, the Volkswagen Tiguan.
A range of available engines include a 2.0-litre 178bhp diesel unit, which delivers 0-60mph in approximately 9.4 seconds, up to 54.3mpg and a 135g/km CO2 emission figure. The most fuel-efficient option is a 1.5-litre 118bhp diesel engine which returns as much as 64.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 115g/km. Each is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and Auto Start-Stop is included as standard with all models.
DAB digital radio and a CD player provide travellers with audio entertainment options, and can be operated using remote controls. Also featured as standard are a 4.2-inch TFT screen, Ford SYNC 3 and MyKey technology. Rated a full five stars by Euro NCAP in vehicle tests, the Kuga’s safety features include Electronic Stability Control, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, seatbelt reminders and multiple airbags.
