Ford has released more details of its Kuga that will go on sale throughout Europe in the first half of 2008.
The Kuga will be powered by Ford's 134bhp 2.0-litre diesel, linked to a six-speed manual gearbox.
It will be available in two-wheel drive only or with an intelligent four-wheel drive system for those who want off-road capability.
Ford has also revealed that the car will be equipped with 19-inch wheels and a split tailgate to ease loading.
Options will include a panoramic roof and a seven-inch colour display screen which will show navigation details and images from a rear-view parking camera.
Full details of the car's specification are expected to be revealed at this year's Frankfurt motor show, which begins on September 11.
