Review

The Ford Kuga isn't competitive in a number of areas, most notably its cheap-feeling interior and relative lack of practicality. If you really want a Kuga stick to the cheaper trims, because for the price of the more expensive versions there are much better alternatives, including the Peugeot 5008 or Mazda CX-5.

Trim: Zetec

The entry-level trim gets all the essentials, including 17in alloy wheels, air-con, hill-start assist, electric windows all round and cruise control. It’s our pick of the range, although we'd recommend forking out for the optional 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system.

Engine: 1.5 TDCi

The entry-level diesel engine may be small in size, but it has enough grunt for most people and emits less CO2 than any other model in the range. It's our preferred choice for company car drivers but, if you regularly have a full car, consider the gutsier 2.0 TDCi 150.
