What used Ford Kuga 4x4 will I get for my budget?
The Kuga is still new to the market so prices are settling, but the good news is there are already a number of nearly new cars for sale on dealer forecourts with mileages ranging from 50 to 5000 miles. Expect to spend at least £21,000 to £24,000 to secure one, but, depending on spec, trim and engines, this is a useful saving on the price of a brand new one.
How much does it cost to run a Ford Kuga 4x4?
The 1.5 Ecoboost 150 averages 42.8mpg, the 1.5 Ecoblue 120 diesel 60.1mpg, the 2.0 Ecoblue mHEV 57.6mpg, while the PHEV achieves the remarkable on-paper figure of 201.8mpg.
Charging the PHEV’s batteries takes 3.5 hours from a 7kW home wall-box, or around six hours if you use a three-pin domestic plug. If you keep the battery topped up and do mainly shorter journeys your fuel costs will be negligible, and when its run out and you're left with mainly the petrol engine, you can expect up to 50mpg with careful driving on a mix of roads.
Road tax will be at the current standard rate of £155 a year.
Insurance groupings are in line with the Kuga's rivals, ranging from 13 to 19, and are dependent on specification. Servicing costs should be reasonable and Ford has a number of schemes available to help spread the cost of servicing.
