Ford Kuga Titanium 2.0 0
This version was developed across the Atlantic and was made even bigger. This time round it has even more equipment too. The engine line-up has been overhauled too. It’s almost a completely new car when compared to the last one.
The car still remains bulky. From certain angles it almost looks like an off roader. It looks more rugged, but has some sparkle with the 17 inch alloy wheels along with the wonderful chrome features upon the front grille.
Parts of the interior have been influenced heavily by the Ford Focus. The dashboard and console layout are both largely the same. The interior does however come with a lot of quality equipment, as mentioned earlier. This includes dual zone climate control together with USB media connection.
The driver will get an excellent view of the road ahead thanks to the front seats dominant high level standing. The inside has plenty of room too thanks to it’s bulky exterior. There are plenty of useful storage areas around the vehicle making it even more practical. The boot measures at 456 litres. The neat keyless boot entry costs £700, which allows the boot to open with a simple wave of the foot underneath. The seats can be folded back but there is no completely flat area however.
Ford’s SYNC system has finally made it’s way to the U.K from the U.S and will be included in the new Kuga. Drivers will be able to utilise voice control features which would allow the vehicle to read out loud text messages. This brings about better road safety and an effective way of communicating with others whilst behind the wheel. The stereo can also be controlled via voice recognition, allowing the driver to keep both hands on the wheel.
The new Ford Kuga comes with torque vectoring control. This gives out a better driving experience, braking the front wheels individually bringing about a sharper drive.
The car will cost £25,545. The optional extras do offer pretty good value too. There is no reason as to why the Kuga will not be a success in the UK market this year.
