Ford’s all-new Kuga is set to arrive in Ireland later this month, with prices commencing from €33,450. This new SUV will be available in both two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive format. The AWD system has been tuned to improve driving feel, handling and responses at speeds in excess of 30 km/h. It also incorporates Ford Curve Control, which acts as a safeguard for drivers who have entered a bend too quickly.
The interior of the new Kuga offers improved space over its predecessor, with 46 litres more luggage space available. There’s also a hands-free tailgate which can be opened with a kicking motion underneath the rear bumper. Powering the Kuga is a 2.0-litre TDCi Duratorq diesel engine, available in two power outputs, 140hp and 163hp. The 140hp front-wheel drive model delivers a combined fuel consumption of 5.3l/100km and emits 139g/km of CO2.
The new Ford Kuga is available to Irish motorists across two trim specifications, Zetec and Titanium. Some of the standard features on the Zetec variant include, 17” alloys, front fog lights, heated windscreen, cruise control, daytime running lights, a leather steering wheel and an alarm. The Titanium model has automatic lights and wipers, dual zone air conditioning, Ford SYNC connectivity, partial leather seats and a Sony radio/CD.
