The Ford Kuga was first produced in 2008 and was also called the Ford Escape on some markets such as the U.S.
Like the Ford Focus and Ford C-Max, the Kuga is based on the C1 platform and it comes in several versions, a 1.5-liter & a 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel, and a 1.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine, followed by plug-in hybrid variants, Kuga EcoBlue Hybrid (mild-hybrid) and Kuga Hybrid (full-hybrid).
The new Kuga model benefits from the latest automotive technologies and hi-tech features like Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition, Lane-Centring, wireless charging pad, FordPass Connect embedded modem, B&O Sound System, 12.3-inch LCD, and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system accompanied by an 8-inch central touchscreen. The parking can be done automatically through Active Park Assist 2, a useful technology that makes life easier for its users.
The new Ford Kuga comes with more interior space making the car more comfortable, revised aerodynamics (thus reducing weight and fuel consumption) and augmented architecture for improved crash performance. Furthermore, due to a longer wheelbase, the stability on the road has increased, and with Post-Collision Braking technology (that reduces the impact of a potential secondary collision), Ford has made the Kuga model inherently safer.
With 12 colors available, customers have a wider palette to choose from, according to their personal preferences.
