Ford’s Kuga has a fresh, new face! Last week we drove with the latest diesel model, but these cosmetic improvements will soon be available as part of a style upgrade.
Exterior visual adaptations – including a new, more aggressive grid design, body-colored side skirts and 19-inch alloys – are part of a new luxurious range that complements the Individual specification, which combines with recent mechanical changes to the range and will be available as an additional set of options for all Titanium models from August 2.
The interior has also been enhanced with Ebony leather upholstery, aluminum pedals in the manual models, as well as slabs and carpets with the Individual logo. All additional kits will cost £ 4,000 including VAT, and the starting price for the Kuga Titanium is £ 24,495.
Launched in 2008, the Kuga was recently updated with a new version of the Ford 2.0-liter TDCi Duratorq diesel engine, which is six percent more efficient than the 131 hp it replaces and is offered in either 138 or 161 hp.
Customers can now also equip four-wheel-drive versions of the Kuga with Ford’s six-speed Powershift two-clutch automatic transmission, first introduced in the Focus, although the automatic transmission is not as economical as its manual counterparts.
