The Kuga is a decent large SUV in any guise, but it makes real sense if you opt for the hybrid or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models. Shortcomings include the iffy interior quality and the relatively small boot.
The trimSee full equipment
The entry-level Kuga trim is Zetec. Standard equipment includes an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system, sat-nav, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a wireless smartphone charging pad, front and rear parking sensors, sports seats with adjustable lumbar support, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear lever, cruise control, automatic lights, 17in alloy wheels, air conditioning, privacy glass, power-folding door mirrors and a heated windscreen, as well as sliding and reclining rear seats. This looks to be a good trim if you're looking to keep costs down with one of the cheaper engine variants.

The 148bhp Ecoboost 150’s 148bhp drops the 0-62mph time down to a reasonable 9.7sec, so expect it to cope with fast flowing roads and heavy loads than its smaller sibling. Only available with a six-speed manual gearbox and it has a towing capacity of 1800kg. CO2 emissions are on the low side for the class, although beaten by the Citroën C5 Aircross.
