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.get the best price
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.
This is the centre ground of the Kuga line-up – a 148bhp diesel that’s available with a manual or an automatic gearbox and front or four-wheel drive. It's well worth a look; with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, it averaged a respectable 43.9mpg in our real-world True MPG test.
