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

A good-looking small SUV that drives rather well. Worth considering if you're in the market.

PROS
Intelligent,
good-looking design inside and out,
excellent infotainment

CONS
Could do with a plusher ride.
Turbo-less petrols can feel a bit weedy.
No electrified option

By:

PROS
Classy interior
Tidy handling
Very well equipped

CONS
Overly firm ride
No seven-seat option
Rivals have more space for passengers and luggage
