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: 
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

The base SE model now comes with more standard equipment, including LED headlamps, a power-operated inner tailgate, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new steering wheel with capacitive-touch button controls; a four-zone automatic climate-control system is now optional on the SE. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system sees a few software updates and offers optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upscale HSE and HSE Luxury models now come with a real-time wading-depth information system and a heated windshield is now available as a standalone option on all models.

Pros
Handsome square-jawed appearance,
upscale cabin,
superior off-road capability.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engine,
clumsy on-road dynamics,
lackluster braking performance.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials

CONS
Touchscreen interface can be slow and difficult to operate
