What used Ford Kuga 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Ford Kuga 4x4?

There's little difference in the fuel economy figures between the two- and four-wheel-drive versions. However, while fuel prices continue to climb and used buyers become more concerned with economy, the two-wheel-drive cars will hold their value better.

The two-wheel-drive diesel averages 46.3mpg and emits 159g/km of CO2 (47.9mpg and 156g/km after mid-2010), while the four-wheel-drive version isn't far behind at 44.1mpg, and 169g/km (47.1mpg and 159g/km after mid-2010). This means the Kuga compares favorably with similarly powered rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan. The 2.5-litre petrol is disappointing in comparison, managing just 28.5mpg and 234g/km.

Insurance costs are about average for this class, with the Kuga sitting a few insurance groups higher than the equivalent Tiguan, but lower than the Honda CR-V. Servicing costs are among the lowest in the segment.
