Review

With its nippy acceleration and agile handling, the Ford Puma will put a bigger smile on your face than any other small SUV. But it’s a car you can buy with your sensible hat on, too, thanks to its low CO2 emissions, excellent real-world fuel economy, cleverly designed boot and attractive monthly PCP costs.

This entry-level engine has 124bhp and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 9.5sec – far quicker than a Nissan Juke or VW T-Roc 1.0 TSI. You can opt for a smooth seven-speed automatic gearbox with this engine, but because it’s more expensive to buy and run (and slower), we’d stick with the manual. Regardless of the gearbox, this engine pulls reasonably well from low revs, although the more powerful 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155 version is much faster.
