Ford Kuga Car Reviews

The Ford Kuga is a small 4x4 that has been in production since 2008. The current second-generation model was launched in 2013. Like most Fords, the Kuga delivers an accomplished driving experience. The suspension is well balanced and steering is responsive, making for a comfortable, smooth ride. The Kuga is easy to handle, with the four-wheel drive system cutting in when extra traction is needed, and the ride is very refined.

Ford Kuga Overview

The interior of the car is well laid out and boasts a good driving position. Seats are comfortable and supportive, with head and legroom plentiful in the front. Space is also good in the rear of the car, although the tallest passengers may be a little cramped. The boot could be a little larger, but there is still a decent amount of room for luggage and other items.

The Ford Kuga comes with an excellent level of standard equipment, including a socket for MP3 connectivity, heated windscreen and air conditioning. Moreover, the highest level of trim – Titanium X – offers leather interior, Bluetooth, heated seats and a glass roof. A wide range of engines are available, the diesel options offering the best fuel economy.

It is available with three levels of trim in the UK – Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X. The transmission selection is comprised of a 5-speed automatic, 6-speed manual or 6-speed dual clutch automatic.

The vehicle has been on sale in Argentina since 2010 and in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa since 2011.

The 5-door, 5-seater crossover can be purchased as a two- or four-wheel drive.

The second-gen Kuga was launched in the UK in 2013. The new model offers the same levels of driver enjoyment as its predecessor with better refinement, more standard equipment and a more practical interior.

Summary

The Ford Kuga offers practicality with a decent amount of interior space and delivers a refined ride. The comfortable 4x4 makes a great family car and comes with a lot of standard equipment.
