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.

get the best price

The cheapest Titanium trim level doesn’t feel very ‘entry-level’ at all, with 17in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors, climate control and cruise control all coming as standard, plus the front seats have lumbar adjustment and a massaging function, while the infotainment system includes wireless phone charging, an 8.0in screen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

With 124bhp the Ecoboost mHEV 125 can accelerate from 0-60mph in 9.5sec – far quicker than the Nissan Juke or the Volkswagen T-Roc 1.0 TSI. It comes as standard with a super-slick, six-speed manual gearbox, and if you want the alternative smooth, seven-speed automatic gearbox, that comes minus the mild hybrid tech. 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.
