Taking the Sports Utility Vehicle to the next level, the Ford Kuga has been completely redesigned to create the ultimate Sports Utility Vehicle. The range has a model and specification to meet the needs of anyone looking for something that is a break from the norm.
Ford’s most advanced SYNC® 3 technology keeps you in touch with the outside world while on the move. The new interface features a smartphone like pinch and swipes interface for even more spontaneous navigation and connectivity. If you are unfortunately involved in an accident, Emergency Assist automatically contacts the local emergency services and gives them your vehicle location, when the airbags are inflated – ensuring that you are not left stranded.
Driving technology forward
The Kuga is loaded with technology that is designed to assist your driving experience and make it as easy as possible. Active Park Assist renders struggling to park in tight spaces a thing of the past – leave the Kuga to steer whilst you control the gears, accelerator and breaks.
The built in Rear View Camera shows the view behind when the reverse gear is selected allowing extra driver peace of mind.
Model Variants available are Zetec, Titanium, Titanium X, Vignale, ST-Line and ST-Line X.
Behind the steering wheel of the Kuga, you're in charge of a range of systems, features and technologies. All are designed to enhance your every drive. So you're free to enjoy the experience to the full. The features available as standard or optional in the Kuga are as follows:
Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive - determines how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain

One look at the Kuga and you can't help but feel unstoppable. And no wonder. This is a vehicle built to help you live out your sense of adventure. So it's got all the features and technologies you need to get you to your favourite sport, game, activity...
A retractable tow bar: there when you need it - tow bars are usually fixed, so they permanently stick out from the back of a vehicle. But the Kuga's optional electrically releasable tow bar makes it easy to let the tow bar tuck away behind the bumper when not in use
Easy-fold rear seats - splits 60:40 and fold flat in a simple, one-hand operation, to create more space in the rear
Space for all your stuff - the Kuga's boot space is both generous and flexible. There are plenty of handy stowage areas throughout the vehicle for all sorts of items
Adapt your boot space to suit you - with 5 people seated in comfort, the luggage compartment floor can be set low to create a deeper 406L space. Or in two-seat mode, set it higher to create a flat load area and an impressive 1,603L capacity with a hidden compartment below
Carry more with optional roof rails - improve the practicality of your Kuga as well as enhance its image.
* The declared fuel consumptions and CO2 emissions are measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of European Directive 80/1268/EEC and the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 as amended by (EC) 692/2008. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are specified for a vehicle type and not for a single car. The applied standard test procedure enables comparisons between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. In additional to the fuel efficiency of a car, driving behaviour as well as other non-technical factors are very important in determining a car’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. A guide on the fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contain data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge or can be downloaded from http://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk/. Note: All vehicles are Durashift 5-speed manual unless otherwise stated.
