Review

The Ford 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. The hybrids have economy that private buyers will appreciate, while the plug-in hybrid is one of the best large SUVs of its kind for company car drivers, 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

This is our pick of the non-hybrid Kugas because you get 18in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, part-leather seats and automatic wipers.

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.
