What Car? says...
The Ford Kuga not only belongs to the super-fashionable large SUV car class, but has added appeal because its available as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV).
On the one hand, this Kuga PHEV keys into the growing appetite for zero-emissions motoring, because it gives you a good electric-only range between charges. And on the other, company car drivers will enjoy the financial benefits of low CO2 emissions when it comes to paying their benefit-in-kind tax bills.
If you're looking for a car with a regular petrol or diesel engine, the Mazda CX-5 and Peugeot 5008 might be on your radar. Electrified options include the Honda CR-V Hybrid, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. For something with a premium badge, there's the Volvo XC60.
So, how does the Ford Kuga stack up against its SUV peers and is it the car for you? Over the next few pages, this in-depth review – which covers performance, running costs and much more – will tell you all there is to know.
