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: ST-Line

ST-Line models are the sporty option so get a bodykit, sports suspension, 18in wheels, black detailing for the outside and floor mats with red piping. It also has a self-parking system that not only brings front and rear parking sensors but means the Kuga can steer itself into a parking spot. It's too pricey to recommend, though.

Engine: 2.0 TDCi

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.
