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.

You have to plump for ST-Line if you want either the hybrid FHEV or plug-in hybrid PHEV engine options. This trim is mostly about the interior and exterior styling tweaks and firmer sports suspension that you should really try before you buy.

Mild-hybrid tech helps this 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel engine to emit less CO2 than the less powerful 1.5-litre. Performance is similar to the Ecoboost 150, in other words it's adequate, but you can’t have an automatic gearbox. It can at least tow up to 1900kg, 100kg more than the Ecoboost 150.
