Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Ford Kuga's high SUV roofline gives it a decent amount of front head room, and its interior is wide enough to ensure that you won’t be clashing elbows with your passenger. Front leg room is fine for six-footers, but not as generous as it is in rivals including the Honda CR-V and Peugeot 5008

The large cubby at the bottom of the centre console is big enough for your mobile phone and wallet, and there are two large cupholders between the front seats, along with a rubberised dish for storing change or keys. The central armrest opens to reveal a deep storage bin with a 12V socket.

Seat folding and flexibility

All Kuga models have reclinable rear seats that can slide forwards and backwards, so you can prioritise boot space or passenger knee room depending on your needs. They are also heated if you opt for either the Vignale or ST-Line X Edition trim levels. 

If you need more luggage space, the rear seats can be folded down in a 60/40 split by pulling levers on the walls of the boot compartment. That split matches the Skoda Kodiaq but isn’t as handy as the more versatile 40/20/40 split in the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage and Volvo XC60.
