Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cadillac makes several small changes to the 2020 XT4, which mainly include new standard and optional features as well as small design tweaks. All models now have automated emergency braking, forward-collision warning, front pedestrian detection, and a safety seat alert. The entire lineup receives a revised shifter, enhanced infotainment rotary controller, and new metallic paint colors (Silver Dust and Garnet). Likewise, the top two trims add a standard hands-free liftgate and rear pedestrian detection.

Pros
Expressive design, ample cargo and passenger space, quiet and refined engine.

Cons
Subpar cabin quality, ride should be smoother, not the best deal.

The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car

Pros
Safer,
more affordable,
more spacious and more convenient than before

Cons
Not as fun as it used to be. It's grown up and got some proper trousers...

By:

The Ford Kuga has recently been facelifted to keep it competitive, but its dashboard still lags behind some rivals.With attractive styling, decent practicality and an impressive safety record, the Kuga is a convincing family SUV. It can't quite match the extremely high all-round standards of some of its latest rivals – the SEAT Ateca in particular – but for the right deal it's worth considering.

PROS
Good value and well equipped
Economical diesel engines
Spacious interior

CONS
Too many buttons inside
Outshone by several rivals
Inferior automatic gearboxes

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Amongst other family SUVs, the previous Ford Kuga was a good looking car. Now, though, it’s even more distinctive to look at and its engine choices are bang up to date.

Pros
Good fun to drive for an SUV
Keen price and generous equipment
Plug-in hybrid has a decent electric range

Cons
Alternatives have plusher interiors
Smaller boot than alternatives
Poor tow rating for plug-in hybrid
