The smart-looking and fun-to-drive Ford Kuga is available now from Islington Ford. This practical SUV is an exceptionally safe family vehicle too, and comes with a full five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating.
With its raised ride height and purposeful stance, the Kuga is every bit the modern urban SUV. The car rides on lightweight and stylish 17-inch alloy wheels, which are fitted as standard, and comes with a range of attractive body-coloured fixtures too. These enhance your paint finish of choice, and include power-operated and heated door mirrors, complete with integrated indicators. Further exterior lighting includes height-adjustable low-to-high-beam headlights, which react automatically to oncoming traffic. Front fog lamps feature too, delivering good visibility on mist-strewn roads.
Front-row travellers are provided with lots of leg and headroom, as well as height-adjustable positions. The driver also benefits from a lumbar-supporting seat and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, enabling him or her to get truly comfortable. The car’s rear compartment, meanwhile, easily accommodates two adult occupants or three younger travellers. Numerous stowage cubbies are provided throughout, including a large glovebox and capacious door bins. A well-proportioned 456-litre boot features a low load sill, ensuring that placement and retrieval of bulky items is straightforward. Whenever more volume is required, simply flip the vehicle’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and you’ll have 1,603 litres of cargo capacity at your disposal.
Entry-level Kuga models are fitted with a 1.5-litre 120bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 45.6mpg and produces a 143g/km CO2 emission figure. Optimal efficiency is delivered by variants that are installed with a 1.5-litre 120bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 64.2mpg, and produces emissions as low as 115g/km.
Technology and safety
A six-speaker sound system is included as standard, and includes DAB digital radio, an MP3-compatible CD player and an FM/AM tuner. Bluetooth features too, allowing you to stream audio content from your smartphone, and enjoy hands-free mobile communication. SYNC 3 is available as an option, or standard with next-level Titanium grades and upwards, and comes with an eight-inch colour touchscreen. This infotainment system features, among other things, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, enabling you to mirror your smartphone via the car’s display.
A wide range of driver aids are fitted as standard. These include Cruise Control, which allows you to set a safe maximum speed ahead of each journey, and Electronic Stability Control, which significantly minimises skidding. Passive safety features include a suite of airbags, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and safety belt reminders for each traveller.
