Review

So far we've only tried one engine and trim – the 2.5 Duratec PHEV ST Line – and it's very competitive to buy and run among other plug-in-hybrid large SUVs. However, the rest of the Kuga package is decent enough but outclassed by bigger, more comfortable and more refined competition, such as the Peugeot 5008. The non-PHEV models might improve on some of those areas, so we'll update this review when we've tried them.
