Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

There are no weedy engines in the Ford Puma line-up, nor are there any super-basic trim levels. This explains why the car's starting price is higher than those of the Nissan Juke and Skoda Kamiq. However, in like-for-like form, it’s actually cheaper than both those cars, and also undercuts the equivalent Volkswagen T-Roc.

PCP car finance deals are really attractive, helped by the fact that the Puma is predicted to depreciate more slowly than many of its peers. It’s more economical, too – in our real-world True MPG test the 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155 averaged a very respectable 45.1mpg.

You might also want to consider ST-Line trim (our favourite), which adds sportier styling, swaps the conventional instrument dials behind the steering wheel for a 12.3in digital display and adds more supportive seats. However, you do have to make do with manual air conditioning, which blows warm or cool air on demand rather than automatically maintaining a set temperature.

ST-Line X trim does get climate control and also brings bigger 18in alloys for an even sportier look, along with privacy glass, part-leather seats and that great-sounding B&O stereo. Range-topping ST-Line Vignale gets full leather seats (heated in the front), a heated leather steering wheel and keyless entry. It's too pricey to recommend, though.

Reliability

Overview

With its nippy acceleration and agile handling, the Ford Puma will put a bigger smile on your face than any other small SUV. 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.

  • Great fun to drive
  • Remarkable blend of performance and fuel economy
  • Big and cleverly designed boot
  • Rear space is adequate rather than outstanding
  • Visibility could be better
  • Volkswagen T-Roc is more comfortable and quieter
