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.

Trim: Zetec

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, 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. This looks to be a good trim if you're looking to keep costs down with one of the cheaper engine variants.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBoost
