Updated Kuga coming this month
With styling cues taken from the US-built Edge large SUV, introduced to Europe earlier this year, the Kuga, Ecosport and Edge all now share a rugged family SUV look and give the blue oval brand a range of vehicles to compete in each of the crossover growth segments.
The car is also gaining new engines, including a 120hp 1.5 diesel and 1.5 EcoBoost petrol units in 120/150hp variants. There are FWD and AWD versions, and automatic transmission is available.
Other technologies on the revised Kuga include hands-free perpendicular parking, and a cross-traffic alert system for safer reversing out of a parking space. Ford's active city stop now operates at higher speeds.
Kuga now also offers new grades — ST-Line and Vignale. The model was first produced in 2008.
