Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Ford Puma ST 2021 dashboard

Let’s not beat around the bush, the Puma ST is significantly cheaper than almost every other similarly sized Sports SUV, including the BMW X2 M35i, Cupra Formentor, Mini Countryman John Cooper Works and Volkswagen T-Roc R. Even if you tick the options boxes for Ford’s Mean Green metallic paint and the must-have Performance Pack, you’ll still be getting a car that’s at least a few thousand pounds cheaper than the competition. 

And although the Puma ST sits in a relatively high 36%  benefit in kind bracket, that's still 1% below the aforementioned rivals, and the ST's significantly lower purchase price guarantees much lower monthly company car tax payments.

Overview

Not only is the Ford Puma ST one of the most exciting SUVs we’ve ever driven, it’s also immensely practical, comes packed with equipment and undercuts all of its main rivals on price. In other words, the Puma ST is a classic performance car from Ford: fast, fun and fantastic value, making it our favourite Sports SUV.

  • Immensely enjoyable to drive
  • Surprisingly big boot
  • Great driving position
  • Occasionally bouncy low-speed ride
  • Infotainment could be slicker
  • A VW T-Roc is bigger in the back
