How to spec a Ford Puma
Our guide to the Car of the Year-winning Ford Puma small SUV covers which version to go for, which options to choose and how much to pay...
The Ford Puma is an outstanding small SUV – it's so good, in fact, that it's our Car of the Year for 2020. The Puma drove away with our top accolade because it excels in all of the areas that matter to buyers in this market, keeping running costs in check with its clever mild-hybrid technology while being as practical as it is stylish. In short, it's a truly outstanding car.
Our full 16-point review will tell you more about the Puma, including what it's like inside and what engines are available, but here we're more concerned with how much kit we can get for our money. Go for our recommended ST-Line X trim and you'll have most bases covered; this gives you climate control, 18in alloy wheels and part-leather seats. There's still room to add more luxury, however, without causing your bank manager to raise an eyebrow. Here's what we'd choose.
Driver Assistance Pack (£900)
Ford’s Drive Assistance Pack brings together lots of useful tech for not very much money. For £900, you get automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control with lane-keeping assistance. You also get a self-parking system, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera, so you’ve no excuse for crossing the white parking lines ever again.
Comfort Pack (£300)
Frosty winter mornings aren’t fun for anyone, but you can at least take the worst of the chills away with Ford’s Comfort Pack, which gives you heated front seats and a heated steering wheel for £300. Toasty hands and roasty buns will go some way towards cheering up the bleakest of winter days.
