Since 2008 the Ford Kuga has been commanding the streets of Britain. A rugged off-road performer, the Kuga is equally comfortable rolling along city roads, and the latest addition is equipped with plenty of Ford’s most cutting-edge technology.
The new Kuga’s design is suitably commanding, with powerful shoulders and a professional front grille. It is more aerodynamic than previous models, and the smoother body-lines allow a low drag coefficient conducive to responsive handling. Motorists can even upgrade with an Appearance Pack, which adds aluminium-finish roof rails and rear privacy glass for an even more exclusive feel.
The car’s interior is where the new model really comes into its own, with a new Ford SYNC system available, which allows motorists to control the car’s varied systems without their hands leaving the steering wheel. Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive, Active City Stop and Active Grille Shutters can also be fitted, allowing greater security and efficiency than ever before.
In terms of practicality the new Ford Kuga excels, with considerably more space and customisability than its predecessor. The latest Kuga has up to 481 litres of boot space, and even more room can be provided by folding the rear seats to the floor.
Described as the most advanced SUV Ford has ever produced, the new Kuga’s engine range isn’t lacking. Motorists can choose an updated version of the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, and the new model also has the option of a groundbreaking 1.6-litre EcoBoost unit, complete with Start-Stop technology. The new EcoBoost engine means that the Kuga is at once faster and more efficient than ever before, and it can achieve combined fuel economy up to 47.9 MPG, and CO2 emissions from 139g/km. There is even a new Ford Eco Mode system, which advises you on how to improve the efficiency of your driving.
Whilst the Ford Kuga has impressed since its launch five years ago, the latest model takes it to an entirely new level. With excellent efficiency figures and more space than ever before, the 2013 Kuga can list itself amongst the finest SUVs on the market.
