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: Zetec

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.

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.
