The Kuga’s 456-litre boot smaller than most others in this class, but it is at least a neat rectangular shape, with a tall, broad opening and low load lip to make it easy to haul big items in. Inside, you'll find two bag hooks and a 12v socket, and the tailgate is easy to shut because it has a chunky handle within easy reach. In fact, go for Titanium X, ST-Line X or Vignale trim and you'll get an electric tailgate as standard.
Unfortunately, there’s no variable-height boot floor like there is on many rivals, including the Kodiaq. Once dropped, the rear seats lie flat, but they do leave a big step up in the floor of the extended load area, which is annoying when you're trying to slide in bulky items.
