The Kuga is a decent large SUV in any guise but really makes sense if you opt for the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model. It's one of the best plug-in hybrid large SUVs there is, providing a decent electric-only range, good fuel economy, tidy enough handling, and all for a sensible price. Shortfalls include the iffy interior quality and the relatively small boot.get the best price

ST-Line is the sportier-themed addition to the range, with styling upgrades including a rear spoiler, red brake calipers, red interior stitching, sports suspension, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, alloy pedals and paddle shifters behind the steering wheel on automatic diesels. There’s also a chrome gear knob and ST-Line branded floor mats plus sports suspension, 18in alloy wheels and a 12.3in digital instrument screen. It's quite a bit pricier than Titanium trim with not a lot of added substance and a firmer ride.

If you want four-wheel drive, you’ll have to pick the 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel Ecoblue 190. Its 8.7sec 0-62mph time isn’t bad, although there are swifter choices in this class. At 2100kg, it has the highest maximum towing capacity of the Kuga range.
