New Ford Kuga prices announced

Ford’s SUV offers more equipment and improved efficiency for £1,000 less than current model.

Ford has announced that prices for the all-new Kuga SUV will start from £20,895, which is roughly £1,000 less than the model currently on sale. It will also be available with Ford’s new 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, which can produce 148bhp.

Like the current model, the new Kuga will come in three versions – Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X – all of which, like-for-like, are cheaper and better equipped than their predecessors. For instance, the bestselling 2.0-litre TDCi is £355 cheaper, at £25,545. It adds fold-flat, reclining rear seats, adjustable load floor, Ford SYNC with audible text messaging and emergency assist, visual all-wheel-drive monitor, electronic power steering, hill start assist and enhanced cruise control with active speed limiter.

There’s a choice of 148bhp and 177bhp 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrols, and 138bhp and 160bhp 2.0-litre TDCi Duratorq diesels. All-wheel-drive models are available with Ford’s Powershift semi-automatic gearbox, while some front-wheel-drive models have emissions as low as 139g/km.

“The first-generation Kuga was a huge success with customers. The all-new, second-generation Kuga is a smarter, more fuel-efficient and even more fun to drive SUV,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, marketing, sales and service, Ford of Europe.

The new Kuga also adds 82 litres of boot space, with another 200 litres available when the seats are folded flat. Plus, a range of driver-assist technologies can be added as options, including active park assist and blind spot information system.

Ford will be following the new Kuga with the EcoSport compact SUV and the Edge premium crossover within 18 months.
