Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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:

Advanced safety suite on top trims…

Cons
…but it costs way too much
Incomplete styling
Overmatched powertrains
Cramped third row
