Introduction

What Car? says...

On the face of it, the Ford Kuga is bang on trend. Not only is it a large SUV with a hint of sportiness, it's also available in plug-in hybrid (PHEV) form to keep your running costs low and your green credentials high.

The plug-in hybrid version has a relatively long electric-only range between charges (more on that later), and will be particularly tempting to company car drivers looking for cheap monthly benefit-in-kind tax bills. However, there's also a range of petrol and diesel engines to suit most lifestyles, no matter whether your adventures top out at popping to the shops or towing a caravan from one end of the country to the other. And with several trim levels offered in the Ford Kuga's line-up, you can balance value for money, luxury equipment and sportiness, too.

Of course, the large SUV class is crowded and competitive. If you're looking for something with a regular petrol or diesel engine, the Mazda CX-5 and Peugeot 5008 might also be on your radar. Or, if you're after something electrified, the Honda CR-V HybridToyota RAV4 Hybrid or Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV all fit within the Kuga's price range. You might even be considering something with a premium badge, like the Volvo XC40

How does the Ford Kuga stack up against its peers and is it the car for you?
