Ford Kuga Review

New 4x4 from Ford - Ford Kuga Review

FORD claims its new Kuga 4x4 delivers class-leading technology, fuel efficiency, safety, driving enjoyment and comfort. That’s a whole lot to live up to.

The all-new SUV comes with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system that puts the power where it’s needed for optimum grip.

And it also has Ford’s new Curve Control electronics, which help if a driver goes into a corner too fast by reducing engine power and braking automatically.

Other offerings on different models in the range or from the extras list include parking assistance, blind spot info, and Active City Stop emergency braking.

The company claims another device – torque vectoring control – helps to deliver best-in-class handling. We shall see.

The new model gets five stars for safety from NCAP, and a new engine line-up offers big improvements to economy and emissions.

Engines are 1.6 turbo petrol with 150bhp – only available with front wheel drive, and a 2.0-litre diesel with either two or four wheel drive and power outputs of 140 or 163bhp.


Ford claims a new high quality interior and more space for luggage than the current car.

The electric hatch can also be opened by a kicking motion under the rear bumper – very handy when you get back with your arms full of shopping – but you can bet it won’t be standard.
