Introduction

What Car? says...

If the Ford Puma name sounds rather familiar to you, well, there’s a good reason for that. It was originally a small coupé back in the late 90s, and it was a jolly good one, too – it even picked up a What Car? Car of the Year award.

The trouble was, the original Puma didn’t sell particularly well, which might be why, when it returned to the Ford line-up some two decades later, it had morphed into a small SUV. It still looks sportier than most of the other cars in this class, though, and is more fun in other ways, as we’ll come on to explain.

There are also two regular engine options, in addition to the ST's 197bhp unit: the 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 125 and the 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155.

Over the next few pages of this review, we'll look at all the engines and trims so you can decide which version of the Ford Puma would suit you best. Plus, we'll see how it stacks up against its key small SUV rivals in all the important areas, including practicality, safety, comfort and value for money.

If, after reading our review, you decide the Puma is the car for you, make sure you check out the deals available through our free What Car? New Car Buying service. You could potentially save thousands on the brochure price.
