Which used Ford Kuga 4x4 should I buy?

The 1.5 Ecoboost 120 four-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor is the entry to the Kuga range, and is available only with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox.The range-topping 1.5 Ecoboost 182 petrol model comes with four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic gearbox, so it’s little surprise that its CO2 emissions are pretty high. The entry-level 1.5 TDCi diesel engine may be small in size, but it should have enough grunt for most people. If you regularly have a full car though, we’d opt for the 2.0-litre 150.

Entry-level Zetec models offer the best value in the Kuga range because you get all of the essentials; air-con, electric windows and cruise control are all standard, although we would be tempted to pay extra for the optional 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system. Moving up to Titanium does bring a few niceties, though – such as the upgraded infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, part-leather seats, and automatic lights and wipers.

ST-Line models are the sporty option so get a bodykit, sports suspension, 18in wheels, black detailing for the outside, floor mats with red piping and a self-parking system; this not only brings front and rear parking sensors, but also means the Kuga can steer itself into a parking spot.

The range-topping Vignale version gets perpendicular parking assist, a powered tailgate and adaptive xenon headlights as standard, as well as a liberal upholstering of Windsor leather on the seats, interior doors and dashboard.
