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: 
topgear.com

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

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
One of the nicer cabins in this class,
turbo engine adds excitement,
satisfying ride-and-handling traits.

Cons
Cargo area is tight,
worse fuel economy than many competitors,
turbo engine limited to priciest model.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Plenty of tech on board
Smooth hybrid system
Nice cabin quality

Cons
Fiddly climate controls
Slightly firm ride
Front-end styling is divisive
